Let me introduce myself. My name is Ira. I live
in Minsk. But I was born in Kiev. I have been living in this town since my
childhood. And I like my native town very much.
Now I am going to tell you about my family. We
are a family of four. Well, actually, there are five members in our family, as
we love Ram – our dog – as if it is a person.
But let's start with my father. He is the Head
of the family. His name is Vladimir and he is 44 now. He is a taxi driver. My mother is sure, that Dad is very
handsome. He is short and not very athletic with short fair hair beginning to
gray. But he is a very sociable person, he talks all the time, especially at
work. What I don't like about him is that he is always busy and often works at
night. He loves fishing and we often go to the river together, especially in
As for my mother, she is five years younger
than Dad. Her name is Olga. She works as a bank assistant. My mother is slim
and sporty, she always looks like a lady. I think she looks young because she
does all the housework in our family. I think she likes it, but we always try
to help her, if we have time.
Sasha is my elder brother. He is 21 already. He
is a student now. He is going to become a teacher. He has a pretty girlfriend
Marina and they are going to get married. Sasha’s dream is to travel all around
the world together with his wife. But I think that no teacher can afford
traveling, especially when he is married.
some traditions in our family. One evening a week we gather together to discuss
different things. We try not to use different gadgets during such evenings
because my mother says that they kill real communication. Each of us has
different hobbies. I collect coins and ask my friends to bring them to me from
various countries. My brother likes table tennis and he met Marina there two years ago. As for my mother,
she likes shopping of course, she tries to buy something interesting every time
she is in the shop. Sometimes it's a problem, as it's hard for her to leave the
shop. We all love our mother, because she is the heart of our Family, she keeps
the house clean, she takes care of everybody around her, she is really very kind.
We try our best to be a friendly and loving family.
