Talking about family and friends I’ve gottwo brothers and a sister. My brothers are twins(= two children born to one mother at the same time), and they are three years younger than me. I’mthe oldest and take aftermy father (= Iam similar to him in appearance and/or character). My sister takes after my father in some ways, but she looks likemy mother (= her appearance is similar to my mother’s). We’re a close family(= we have a good relationship/see each other a lot).My best friendPete is an only child(= without brothers or sisters); he spends a lot of time with us and he’s almost one of the family.

Family names Your parents give you a first name,e.g. James and Sarah are common first names in Britain. Your family name,usually called your surname,is the one that all the family have, e.g. Smith and Jones. Your full nameis all the names you have, e.g. Sarah Jane Smith.

Changing times Insome parts of the world, couples may live together but do not get married. In this relationship they often call each other their partner.Where the child or children live(s) with just one parent, especially after the parents have separated(= they don't live together any more), these are sometimes called single-parent families.

Friends

an oldfriend (= someone you have known for a long time)

a closefriend (= a good friend/someone you like and trust)

your bestfriend (= the one friend you feel closest to)

classmates(= other people in your class)

flatmates(= people you share a house / flat with, who are not your family)

colleagues(= people you work with; they may or may not be friends)
