How are you? I am writing to you hoping that we can become friends.
My name is Jenny Blake. I am 20 years old. I am from Great Britain.
I am looking for pen pals with similar interests and from any country. I live in a small village near Birmingham in England. There are 9 of us in my family: my parents, my grandma, my two brothers, my sister-in-law, my nephew, my sister and me.
My parents Jim and Kate are 49 and 48 years old. They have a small business.
My granny Emma was a nurse at the local hospital but now she is retired. She is 75. She takes care of the family and cooks meals.
My elder brother Thomas is 30. His wife is 28 years old. Her name is Betty. They have a little son Ronald. My parents and Granny adore him. My brother is a driver and Betty is a housewife.
My brother Andy is 27 years old and he doesn’t live with us. He is a designer and works for a big company in London. He comes home every year for Christmas.
My sister Mary is younger than me, she is 16. She goes to our local school. She is very clever. She is good at biology and chemistry. Her dream is to become a pharmacist.
As for me I help my parents with their work. But I am also a first year student at the University of Birmingham. I will be a Computer Engineer. I participate in an online distance learning program. That means I take classes online and communicate with my professors and other students through the Internet. My teachers and fellow students live in different places. But twice a year I come to Birmingham and take my exams.
I hope after graduating from the university I’ll work as a Software Designer.
In my free time I go in for sports. I enjoy swimming and tennis. My sister and I also like riding our bikes. I don’t read a lot. I prefer going to the cinema. I often listen to the music from my iPod. It is mostly rock but sometimes classical music.
Now I’m very interested in various cultures and would like to meet people from other countries.
What is your name? Where are you from? How many people are there in your family? How old are they? What do they do? What are they like? What do they look like? What do you like doing in your free time? What are your plans for the future?
Hope to hear from you soon,
