Topic 1 "My family"


My name is Andreas Kicker. Andreas is my first name and Kicker is my last name. I'm 16 years old. I want to tell you a few words about my family.

I think family is very important to each of us. The family are the people who love you, support you and always help you. It is impossible for me to live without my family. My family is not very big. It consists of my mother, my father and my brother Lukas. So there are four people in our family. We also have grandparents and a lot of other relatives.

First of all, I would like to say a few words about my parents. My mother is a good looking woman with blonde hair. She is forty-five years old, but she looks much younger. She is a German teacher by profession and works in school. She really likes her job. My mother takes care of the household as well as my father and both of us. She is very good at cooking and always prepares delicious dishes. Although my mother is very good-natured, she is sometimes strict with us. She always checks that we've done our homework. She also makes sure that we do a lot in our free time.

My father is a lawyer. He's forty-six. He is an expert in his field, does his job very well and makes a lot of money. He is also skilled in all things and can repair everything. My parents have been married for 20 years. Although they have a lot in common, they have different tastes when it comes to music, books or films. For example, my father likes adventure films, and my mother likes to watch fantasy films and romance films. My father likes to play soccer and chess. My mother likes to play tennis. My parents work a lot.

My younger brother Lukas goes to the same school as me. He would like to be a lawyer, like my father. He also likes to play table tennis. He's a good student.

My grandmother and grandfather are retired. They don't live far from us. Sometimes our grandmother helps us with housekeeping. She also likes to knit. My grandfather reads a lot and enjoys reading. His home library is five times the size of ours.

As for me, I would like to be a programmer. I've always enjoyed working with computers. I can even write simple computer programs and play guitar well. I like different styles of music, but my favorite music is rock.

We have a very good family relationship and we all get on very well. Everyone in our family is always busy, but we're always happy when we can spend time together. My family means a lot to me.
