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

Well, I live with my father, mother and little sister, and I also have a dog. Idk if that's a big family, but I think it's not big, cause I have a friend who has 2 sisters and 3 brothers (and they also live with mom and dad) :D

No, I don't have a big family. My family has 4 members-my parents, sister and me. My parents are divorced and my sister studies in other city, so I live with my mother only, but I'm very close to my grandparents and I meet them almost every day. I have two cats and I consider them as family members.
