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

I live in a big family. My extended family has 10 people: my grandparents, my three uncles and his wife, my cousins (two brothers and one little sister); but my immediate family only has two people. It’s just my Mum and me. My Mum is nearly 40 years old. She’s got short black hair and big brown eye. Especially for her smile, it’s bright and beautiful, which I wish I could have. Her job is a journalist. She is kind and supportive and always gives me very good advice. She is always there for me. More than that, she is an excellent cook and she loves to create new delicious food. I’m crazy about her dishes. My mom and dad had divorced when I was little. That’s why I don’t live with him. My grandparents are farmers. My nanny is 60 years old but she is so sprightly and energetic, she cherishes her children a lot. She loves feeding her animals and taking care of them. She also enjoys working in a garden. I used to spend my summer in her garden listening to her fairy tale stories. My grandpa is over 65 years old. He is pretty quiet and hardworking. He wakes up very early every morning day and goes to work. He is super patient, informal, and easy-going. He really likes people but doesn’t love talking to them all the time. He is definitely the introvert of the family. What all this means he likes working alone all the time. My all uncles married and have lovely children, except one person. My second uncle is still alone now. He is waiting to a right woman just suit for him. My cousins and I get along with each other, sometimes we have fights and arguments but we make up very soon afterward. I love my little cousin. She is a cutie, and she is growing fast. She will talk your arm off. She has such a big vocabulary for such a small person. I love my family. I so happy to have the wonderful family.
Is my text okey?

Dear Kelly,
I'm so happy to hear from you again. Well, my family used to be a nuclear family with my parents, me and my older brother. Now that my older brother got married and had a baby, we sort of become an extended family.

We live in a lovely two-storey house in a peaceful village in the countryside of Vietnam. I love the atmosphere, the people and the scenery here in my hometown very much. If you have a chance, take a visit to my house and I will show you around. There are lots of things waiting for you here.
Let's get back to my family. My family are all tall and thin. My mum is 49 years old and my dad is five years older than my mum, which means he's 54. My mom has got white skin, smooth long black hair and an oval face. Right now, she is a primary teacher teaching Math and Literature in grade 2. My mom is a caring, loving woman who can do everything to make us kids safe and happy. My dad is a retired navy. He is tall, thin and has light brown skin. He is very good at cooking and he is responsible for doing most of the heavy lifting in my house. One unpleasant thing about him, I have to say, is his short temper. Except for that point, he's a good dad. I also have a big brother who is now 26. He followed in my dad's footsteps and now he works as a professional navy. I'm very proud of him. We gets quite along with each other. My sister-in-law is at the same age as my bro, and she is a lawyer. She is short and slim. They have married and had a girl baby. My niece is 4 months now and she is so adorable. Her nickname is "apple", which reminds me of many sayings "An apple for a day keeps the doctor away", or "You are the apple of my eyes". The name says it all. We love and adore her a lot. My apple has a round, cute face with 2 sparkling eyes and lovely nose and a heart- melting smile. She must become a pretty and smart girl when growing up. I love my family very much.
Thank you for your time and I hope that we will meet up one day.
Best regards,
Your friend.
