About my family

Subject: My family

 

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.

Love

Kelly

You live in Brazil? So you speak portuguese, isn't it? I'm studying Brazilian Portuguese right now! I still have so much to learn :) (I'm Italian).

Hi all, I am a secondary student in Vietnam. I have got a big family, I think. I live in a beautiful house with my grandparents, my parents and my little sister. Normally, in Vietnam, old people don't live in a same house with their sons or daughters, but my grandparents do. They love me so much. They are very kind and tolerant. When I was a three-year-old child, my parents went home very late, so my grandparents stayed at home, looked after me and cooked dinner. They even ironed clothes. My parents are busy people. Mom is a chief finance officer at Total company. She is short, with black hair and black eyes, but she looks very beautiful. Dad is the general manager of his own company. He is tall, and thin. He's got black hair and black eyes. My little sister is very fat and kute. You will like her, I think. We used to have a Pet dog but he died 7 years ago. I was very sad because I love him so much.

Dear arash,
Thanks for your comments on LearnEnglish Teens. This website is specially for teenagers aged 13-17 years old but it sounds like you are older than that as you mention that you teach in a university. You are welcome to keep on using LearnEnglish Teens but if you are over 17, please do NOT post any more comments as we must keep this strictly for teenagers to interact with each other. You are welcome to join our LearnEnglish page for adults and post comments there: LearnEnglish.
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Teens Team)
