Introducing yourself

Hi! I'm Susan! I am 17 years old. I live in Boston with my mother, father, and two sisters. I like going to school but I hate doing homework and taking exams. At school I study English, Spanish, Science, Social Studies and Mathematics. I love going to school and seeing my friends and teachers every day. I also like to play tennis after school. I don't have a brother but my best friend Kevin is just like my brother. We tell each other everything. We also study and watch TV together. When I grow up I'm going to be a nurse and take care of sick people.

Hello! My name is Lucy. I am 35 years old, married with one son. I live in New York. I work part-time in a bookstore. It is a great job. I can read as many books as I want for free and I get to spend plenty of time with my son. My husband is a doctor. When I am not working, I spend most of my time cleaning the house, doing the laundry, paying the bills and cooking for the family.

Hi! My name is Kevin. I am 24 years old and moved to the United States 2 years ago from Brazil with my parents. I don't have any brothers or sisters; I am an only child. My parents came to the US because they could not find work in Brazil. My aunt and uncle had moved here 12 years ago and own a restaurant. My father works as a chef and my mother works as a waitress at the restaurant. It is hard work but they are happy that they now have enough money and that I have the opportunity to get a good education. Leaving Brazil was hard for me. I had a lot of family and friends there. I could speak very little English and my family didn't have a lot of money. Things are better now. I have made a few friends and I am learning English fast. I will graduate High School next year and hope to go to college. After that I will get a job as an Engineer and make a lot of money so that my parents don't have to work so hard anymore.
