I have a lot of important people in my life: my mum, my dad, my sister, my aunts,
my uncles, my grandfathers, my grandmothers, my cousins, my friends… But I
think the most important person in my life is my father’s father, my grandfather.
He is eighty-four years old. I spend time with him but, I would like to spend more
time with my grandfather. When we are together we like fixing and inventing
anything. I think that the reason why we invent things isn’t to
be rich, the reason why we do this, is to spend time together. Also, we
go for a walk together because he walks very slowly and I walk slowly too…. We are
the perfect couple to walk!

My most important people in my life are my mum, my dad and my two
brothers. But, especially, the best person in my life is my grand-father
because I like going to the mountain with him and his dogs and I love
playing cards with him and I love winning him too!

The most important people in my life are my family, but the most special person is my mother because I know that I can tell her about any of my problems and she will help me.
My closest friends are all important but I'm closer to some of them than to others
Other important people in my life are my grandmother and my little cousin.

There are many important people in my life: my friends, my family, my neighbours… I definitely could not pick just one.
My family has always been there for me when I needed them. I love them all, especially my little brother and my grandparents. My brother is (most of the time) very kind and sweet. Also, he is really funny. I am always laughing when I am around him.
As for my grandparents, they have always helped me. My grandfather tells me stories of when he was a little kid and my grandmother always listens to me and gives me advice and, of course, her food is the best I have ever tried in my entire life. Although I cannot see them as much as I would like to, I really appreciate the time we spend together.
I have left out some important people but if I included them, this text would be endless so I am going to end this here.

My family is the most important for me. I'm closest to my mum, because she is very supportive and sympathetic with me, but I love all of my family equally.
My closest friends are my childhood friends, because I have known them since ten years ago, so I can trust them.
Other people have been important in my life, like the people of my basketball team.

The most important people in my life are my close family and my friends. My parents have raised me and they have always taken care of me since I was little. My big sister introduced me to what nowadays are my hobbies, and she’s the one that understands me the most in my family.
My friends also made me who I am today, they always listen to me and support me. They never fail to put a smile on my face and I’m grateful for having people as kind as them.

This person is my cousin. He is 5 years older than me but I have a good relation with him. He is an important person because I can talk with him about everything and he tries to help me in everything I need. He is tall and has blond short hair, he wears glasses and is studying an ICT vocational training course. Last year he helped me with my ICT homework. I love him☺

The most important people for me are my family. But if I have to choose one person, I will choose my mother. She's kind, takes care of me. She cooks and feeds me delicious food. She always listens to me and gives me advice. I rely on her very much.
Love her

i think that the most importants people in my life are my mum, my brother and my grandma, firstly, my mum gave me the life, she has teached me a lot of stuff, without her, i wouldn't be the person i am, my brother has helped us in these moments... he has worked to make us move forward, my grandmother has gave the whole family the life... without her we couldn't be here, hopefully, she lives more years.

I can't live without my family. My parents gave birth to me and my siblings and raised us with a lot of difficulties. So, we love each other very much. We always encourage together to try to study hard and also do housework to help our parents.
With my best friend, she is a particular listener. We can talk about our subjects, school, friends, family, hobbies for hours. I hope our friendship lasts forever.

All my family are the people who have been important in my life. My parents, grandparents, sisters, brothers, uncle, aunties, cousins, because every time when I had problem there here. They take care on me since I was born and they help me all the time to make the right choose. My family are composed only by people who know wow to make others feel better, that's why I love them and why they have been important in my life.

My grandparents are very important to me, because they have been taking care of me sincee i was born. They supports a lot to my mother because she is single mother and she has to work many hours at day, so, my grandparents look after me and my little brother.

I have never had best friends in my childhood because I was shy and I did not have many relationships, At school, I had always afraid to talk with girls so I just spent time with boys. Although I have two siblings and with them, I shared my childhood, I used to play plenty of time with my brother, we bothered my sister, etc.. It was a really great childhood in Colombia.

I'm closer to my uncle's partner and my mother has. From my friends I am very close to a childhood friend and my best friends in the village where I live and nearby towns.The truth is that all people have been important because I have always learned something from them.

My sister is very important to me. i can't imagine what would happen without her in my life. she is like a friend of mine, she always listens to me and gives me advice to get over my problems. I regularly have my own presents from my sister everytime she comes back home after working or travelling. That makes me so happy and love her more.

The most important people in my life are my parents. They have always believed in me and helped in difficult moments. Another very important person is Monica, my cousin. I spend a lot of time with her!
