Housemate hogs the kitchen
One of my housemates spends hours in the kitchen each day, including having long, loud phone conversations & filming videos he says are for YouTube - all in his language, which I can't understand. He's not a fluent English speaker. How can I stop him from continuing, without causing any problems? I'd like to say to him something like: "Every day you spend far too long in the kitchen. It's unreasonable because we have to share it. Please massively reduce the amount of time you're in the kitchen and have your phone conversations in your room." However, I don't know how he'd react if I said that. He wouldn't understand all of it & I don't want a hostile response. I don't think it's a cultural issue because I can't imagine that hogging the kitchen in a houseshare would be reasonable anywhere in the world.
