Emma: Ok, so this is a photo of
my mum and dad.
Mike: And how old are your parents?
Emma: Well, my dad was born in 1945. He's
called Terry and my mum, she's called Mary, she's two
years younger than my dad.
Mike: Who do you take after?
Emma: I think I take after my mum. I think
we're both extrovert and friendly people. But of course,
it's not perfect! I sometimes fall out with her, like
all mothers and daughters.
Mike: I think you look like your dad.
You've got the same nose and mouth. And who's this?
Emma: That's my brother. He's called Mark
and he's 29.
Mike: Do you get on with him?
Emma: Yeah I do. When I'm in England we
always go to the pub or the cinema together. We have
the same friends and we always have a good time.
Mike: Who's that with your brother?
Emma: That's my brother's girlfriend,
Fran. We grew up with her because she lived in the same
street as our family when we were young.
Mike: And who are these two people? Your
Emma: Yes. They're my mum's parents. My
grandmother was called Elsie and she was born in 1913
and my grandfather, who was called Albert, was born
in 1910. They often looked after me and my brother when
my mum was at work.
Mike: What were your grandparents like?
Emma: My grandmother, Elsie, was a very
generous and patient person and she looked after five
children during the war so I really looked up to her.
My grandfather was a very intelligent person.
Mike: And these are your other grandparents?
Emma: Yeah. My dad's parents were called
Marjorie and Malcom. I remember my grandfather was a
very shy man
Mike: And who's this?
Emma: That's my aunt Judy and her husband
Peter on their wedding day. They're not together anymore.
They had some problems so she split up with my uncle
six months ago.
