Let me introduce myself. I am … . I am from … . I was born in … . I have been living in this town since my childhood.
Now I am going to tell you about my family. We are a family of five. We are friendly and getting all right.
My father is 45.He works as a surgeon in the hospital. He is neither old nor young, a good looking man, handsome, rather thin with dark hair just beginning to gray. He is a very sociable person. What I don’t like about him is that he is always busy. He works overtime, because he is the only bread-maker in our family. He is keen on tennis and moreover he is fond of going to the country and to deal with our country-cottage.
My mother is three years younger than he. She works as a teacher in the nursery school. My mother is rather slim and pretty, she is always elegant and smart. In short, she is a pleasant-looking woman of about 40. Paying attention to the fact of her being a teacher, she has got a great deal of work to do at home and at school. Sometimes it seems to me that it’s an endless business! Shopping and cooking is nearly half a day’s work for her. But my granny and I are in a habit of giving her a helping hand about the house.
Boris is my older brother. He is 6 years elder than to me. So he is 22 already. He has graduated from the University. He is an economist. He is married and his wife is a journalist. They are three in the family. They have got a child – my nephew. He is a small boy with golden hair and dark brown eyes and a spirit that is always bright and happy, but he is a little bit naughty.
And finally just a few words concerning my granny. To tell the truth she is my best friend. She always listens to my endless stories about friends and school life. She is on pension now. I must admit, she is really an understanding person.
It’s a custom for our family to discuss things during the meals. I must say that all of us are not alike in tastes, manners and characters. But as a matter of fact we get along well with each other. We usually show our interest in what others think and do. We share each other’s joy and sorrow. We never remain indifferent to what happens to others. We exchange our impressions on films or plays we have seen. We are attentive and sincere to each other and all these things unite a family. But we like humor and joking so we argue and tease each other. It does not prevent us from being on friendly terms. Everybody is grateful to our mother, because she keeps the house, she takes care of everybody, she is kind and generous. We try our best to treat mother most kindly.
