Lesson 29 – My Family

Hello. My name is Sanya. I am 12 years old. I am a student. My father is a carpenter. His name is Suresh. He is 45 years old. He is very hardworking and intelligent. He can speak three languages- English, Hindi and Punjabi.

My mother’s name is Roopa. She is 40 years old. She is tall and pretty. She teaches at a school near our house. She cooks delicious food too. She loves to sing. She is always singing while working at home.

I also have a baby brother. His name is Saurabh. He’s very cute and can’t talk yet. He plays with his toys all day long. We all have to watch him very carefully, because he loves putting anything he finds in his mouth.

I love my family.
