    Default better one!!!

    Could you please give me a better expression of this one:

    " There is a hospital near our house." - Something that sounds more natural... thanks

    Hello Blouen,

    That sounds very natural to me (and also quite useful).

    Which part of it don't you like?

    MrP

    PS: "a better expression than this one".

    I was just thinking if there could be other ways of expressing this one.

    Hello Blouen,

    You could also say "We live near a hospital". However, you then lose the information that you live in a house, not a flat (or a caravan).

    Best wishes,

    MrP
