unit 2 matt and fiona talking about how things have changed since the were young
- Well, I’m younger than Matt – much younger! So, I remember having a big American fridge, a microwave and a dishwasher at home when I was young. In fact, putting things in the dishwasher after dinner used to be my job when I was a teenager. But we didn’t use to have a washing machine. All my friends’ parents did, but we lived across the road from a launderette so my parents didn’t think we needed one. I remember the old record
- player which we used to have, sitting in the corner of the living room. But I never used it. I had a portableTV and a cassette player in my room, so I used to sit for hours upstairs watching my favourite programmes and
- listening to cassettes. I still have all my old cassettes in a box somewhere in my parents’ house. I never play them anymore, of course, now that everybody listens to CDs or downloads music from the Internet. It’s a
- shame really. I have some great cassettes.
