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

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.

Hi PurpleBluebell,

It's nice that you want to help other users but here on LearnEnglish Teens we don't correct mistakes in comments as the most important thing is to communicate in English! That's why I've edited your comment.

I hope you enjoy using the site.

 

Best wishes,

Hallo everyone!

I'm new here now. My name's Rose. I'm 14 and I come from Germany. My mother’s French and my father’s German, so I’m bilingual. But we mostly speak German at home.

Let’s tell something about my family. I’ve got mother, father and a (younger) twin sister.

I’m medium high and slim. I’ve got long blond wavy hair with fair sun highlights. I’ve got olive green eyes with small eyebrows. I’ve got small upturned nose, full lips and healthy teeth. I have freckles and a beauty spot. Somebody call me Lotte, because that’s my cat’s name and they want joke. She's black with white paws and green eyes. Even black is my favourite colour.

My twin sister Gwen is as such as me, only that he also wears a dental orthodontic appliance. She’s friendly and a little less shy than I.

My mom Laura is 46 years old. She’s medium high and slim too. She’s got blond wavy hair shoulder length. She also has light green eyes and charming smile. She’s great mom.

My dad Marshall is 48 years old. He’s tall and slender. He’s got dark brown curly hair and sea blue eyes. He likes to joke.

Write soon as possible. Nice to meet all of you. Would any of you be my friend?

Best wishes,
Rose =)

I have a big family. I live with my mother and my younger sister. My mother's name is Luba. She is neither tall no short. She has curly brown hair and brown eyes. She is Ukrainian and speaks Ukrainian, Russian and Surjik. My mum works in the factory as planer. She is a good worker, her collegues and her boss respect her a lot. My sister's name is Natasha. She is a beautiful short girl with long curly brown hair and brown eyes. I love my younger sister, because she is a very kind cute girl. We don't have any grandfathers, but we have two grandmas. They are very old woman and love us very much. One of them lives in our city in her own house with a garden. We meet with her a fer times a week. Another one lives in the countryside. We visit her every month, sometimes more often. Every summer holidays we go to see her. She is very happy to see us. She lives alone with two female goat, chickens, a dog and a few cats. The goats' names are Marta and Kosulia. The are very funny and friendly. Sometimes the have baby goats. We adore to play with them. By the way, my family has a pet dog. Her name is Milka. She is small dog with long silver and gold hair. She likes to play a ball. All members of my family love each other.
