Dear Yoko

Let me tell you about my family. I live with my mum, my dad and my big sister. We live in California. My mum’s name is Carmen. She’s Mexican and she speaks English and Spanish. She’s a Spanish teacher. She’s short and slim, she’s got long, brown hair and brown eyes. My dad’s name is David. He’s American. He’s tall and a little fat! He’s got short brown hair and blue eyes. He works in a bank. My sister Shania is 14 and she loves listening to music. She listens to music all the time! She’s got long brown hair and green eyes, like me. I’ve got long hair too. We’ve got a pet dog, Brandy. He’s black and white and very friendly.

Write soon and tell me about your family.

I have a little family that consist of my wife, my daughter and I , I love them so much. I do everything for one and my wife stays at home for taking care our little daughter and doing homework as a housewife. I work all days a week and study English all evening a week. Although having busy time but I still try to save a worthy time for my little family. All everything is all right and I'm very happy about that.

My family has 4 people: my parents, my older brother and me. My parents are farmers so they are very hard. My mother's health is not good. Sometimes she's ill because of weather change. My big brother's 24 years old and still a student at a university. And I'm a secondary student at a university in the capital of my country. I really hope that my family is always happy and healthy. And you?

I live in a nuclear family which consist of four people: My parents, my younger brother and me. My mom supervises everything in our family: household chores, household tasks and family finance. She is not only a home maker but also a breadwinner and a decision maker, which makes her so powerful that sometimes, I feel that my dad is invisible! My bro and I have opposite hobbies, but both of us have been busy with our studies so we don't have much time to quarrel with each other. He is two years younger but a head taller than me. That's why he talks to me as if we were friends
- Hey, help me with my homework !
-Why ?
- I'm busy
- You must help me....
- Why ?
- You are my sister.
Being a good sister can be hard but fun, as you will have chances to be called " Chi" ( a heartfelt word that is used when younger bro/sis call their old sisters.) instead of your name. It's so interesting.
