    Hi there, after reading this remarkable post i am as well delighted
    to share my experience here with colleagues.

  2. Jasper says:

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover someone who really understands what they are discussing online.
    You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. More people ought to read this and understand
    this side of your story. I was surprised that
    you are not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

  3. Actually when someone doesn’t be aware of then its up to other people
    that they will assist, so here it happens.

  4. madina says:

    i don,t make agood sentense becouse i have alots of problem i can improve our english please?

  5. madina says:

  6. madina says:

    i wish i can a good speaking and a good writing please help me i have alots of problem

  7. Everything typed was very logical. However, think about this, suppose you wrote a
    catchier post title? I mean, I don’t want to tell
    you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people desire
    more? I mean Family and Relationships | English Conversations is a little vanilla.

    You should look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create post
    headlines to grab people to open the links. You might try adding
    a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what
    you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

  8. Lela says:

    Nice answers in return of this difficulty with solid arguments
    and describing everything about that.

    Hi everyone, hope you’re doing good with your english!

    I’m happy to talk about my family. That’s an extended one but there are not so many people. I live with my grandmother, my grandparent and my little sister. We get on well and like spending time together. I think it’s really good to have an extended family when everyone can take care of each other, especially of the elder people.

  18. rasha says:

  36. Truong_Van_Hung says:

    With my ideas, a nuclear family is only a couple with their children. There are no their grandparents, parents and their brother’s or sister’s family in their house.
    An extended family is a big family. There are many generations in a house, not only a couple with their children but also their grandparents, their parents and maybe their brother’s or sister’s family in a house.

    i’m a automatic production engineer. My english is very bad. So i’m trying to learn English so that I can speak english fluently. I also hope that every people could help me learn English.

  72. Amitis says:

    Hi Dear Aaron and Mark,
    I have a suggestion.Is it probably possible to correct our comments?For example, When one of the members leaves a comment or a reply, he or she dosen’t know the comment is right or no.How can we realize our problems in the comment?Could you probably leave a comment after our comment?Hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
    Thanks for your lessons

    • Mark White says:

      Hi Amitis

      I have mixed feelings about this. It is good to be corrected but it is also important to relax and express yourself.

      I feel the “comments” is a place for people to just relax and express themselves and often other people correct them or they realize the correct way to say it by seeing how other people comment.

      All of the comments I have seen so far have been comprehensible. I have been able to understand them. Not a lot of correction is needed.

      If you particularly want your comment corrected you can make a note and maybe someone will help you.

      I can help sometimes but I am trying to spend most of my time preparing new material now.

      cheers Mark

    • Aaron says:

      Hi Amtis…

      I agree with Mark. Correction takes a lot of time I don’t have. One thing you can try is to get on a discussion forum where people, including native speakers, are discussing a topic of interest. Then you can pay close attention to the language patterns they are using and try to use the same ones yourself in response to their post. Furthermore, you should do a lot of reading. Read books and magazine articles everyday. You will naturally internalize the linguistic structures and patterns your mind is absorbing, so that when you go to write, the “correct” patterns will naturally surface. And finally, like Mark says, communication is more important than “correct”. If you can get your meaning across, that is most important. And you are clearly doing a very good job of that…

      Good luck with your language learning!

      • Dhanaporn says:

        I think that for the first time communication is important and in the next step when I have the channel to practice, it will be improve automatic if I’m try.

    a nuclear family refers to one or two adults and chldren. An extended family gives you the idea of some relatives included, as grandparents, uncles, etc.

  100. Danuta says:

    I was expected to write about my family. Once I had a nuclear family: my husband and my two daughters. Now my “children” have left home and are looking to set up their new families :)) So I feel a bit alone but know this is a law of life :))
    Let it be! Nevertheless life is beautiful…

    • Anissa says:

      Yes Danuta

      Nice to meet you Danuta. I am 26 years old and i am still bachelor and as my adoptive mother died I have neither nuclear family nor extended one so be happy and thank GOD for having a nuclear family even if your daugters left. this is life. good luck.

      • Danuta says:

        Hi Anissa,

        I grew up without father, as he suddenly died when when I was 8. So my first family was not full, but I was lucky to have a wonderful, warm and loving mum who tried to do her best and was my first whole world. Anissa, you are so young, the life is still before you, so I’m sure one day you will have your nuclear family, and then, an extended one! I wish you this from all my heart. I wish you also every kind of success, as happiness has not only one face ( = family), but also many other! :))

        • Dhanaporn says:

          Dear Danuta

          • Danuta says:

            Hi Dhanaporn,

            Nice to meet you here. So we have a lot in common, and our mothers have been rewarded for their hard work. The saddest things in life turn very often into the brightest ones! 🙂

        Hi Danuta
        I am Naira, now I live in Malaysia-too far from my motherland. Before my nuclear famaly was my parents, two sisters and brother. then I got merried and now my nuclear famaly is my husband, my son and daughter. But I am missing my parent’s famaly very much and it is too difficult for me to live so far from them. so even your daughters have their new famalies, I believe that they are stiill need you very much, and want you always be next to them

    I’m grateful for sending me your great lessons. I’ve been a retired teacher since June and these lessons give some “fresh air” to my life. I specially like the listening part of each lesson, as this is what I’ve lacked all my life. Listening and the melody and rhythm od the English language….Many thanks for this:)))

  106. Kaveh says:

    A nuclear family points out to the first level of people around us, but an extended family is a bigger one inclulding other family members. As an exapmle, me, my wife and my daughter combine a nuclear family, if I add my parents, my brother and my sister, we will have an extended family.
