1.Could you tell me something about your family?
Certainly. We are a normal Chinese family. It consists of my father, my
mother, and me. I am the only child, so I don’t have any brothers or sisters. My
father was one of four children, and my mother has a brother, so I have a number
of uncles and aunts, and many cousins.
2.Who does most of the shopping in your family?
As far as this topic is concerned, I could say that my mother does most of
the shopping, but my father and I will do some shopping from time to time. My
parents allow me to buy my own clothes. Lastly, I would like to mention that my
mother does not like my father’s smoking habit and therefore refuses to buy
cigarettes, so that my father has to do that kind of shopping himself.
3.Who does most of the cooking in your family?
My mother does most of the cooking, but my father and I will do some cooking
from time to time. Sometimes my mother will be out the whole day doing voluntary
work in our community, and then my father and I will do the cooking for her.
4.How does your family feel about you going abroad?
They are very happy about me going abroad. I believe my parents will be very
proud if I were to achieve a degree at a university abroad.
