Your English teacher has asked you to write a story.

This is the title for your story.

Friends and family

Write your story in about 100 words.






Millie: I come from a really big family. I’ve got 5 brothers and sisters and 14 aunties and uncles.

Dean: That is a big family! My family’s really small. There’s only me and my brother and then my parents. But, I’ve got lots of friends to make up for it!

Millie: Well, at least you’ve got your friends. At the end of the day, I think that family and friends are both as important as each other.

Dean: I agree. I see my friends a lot these days as I’ve just left home. Saying that, I do see my family at the weekend and at parties and special occasions.

Millie: It’s a bit different for me as my family are my friends. I’ve got 20 cousins and 2 of them are my best friends.

Dean: That’s cool. So, do you see your family all the time?

Millie: No, not really. But one time when I think we all should be together, is at Christmas. I’m always with my family then.

Dean: Me too. In my family, Christmas is a three day celebration and no one leave the house for 3 days. We eat, drink and have fun.

Millie: That’s how it should be. We play lots of games at Christmas and the first time my boyfriend came to our house at Christmas, he thought we were all crazy!

Dean: Really? Well, my girlfriend hasn’t met my parents yet. I’m really worried she won’t like them. Everyone says that they appear really unfriendly when you meet them for the first time.

Millie: I’m sure she’ll love them. Relax and everything will be just fine.

Dean: I hope so. I guess I should take your advice and relax!
