Listen to Paul and Andrea talking about their family life. What are two things that are different about their families? Complete the chart.
P: So, Andrea, you’re going home for the holiday?
A: I sure am. I’ve booked a flight for tomorrow afternoon and I can’t wait.
P: That sounds great.
A: What about you? Going home too?
P: I haven’t decided yet. I’m still considering....
A: Haven’t decided yet? Oh, you are never going to get a flight out of here. All the seats have been reserved by now I’m sure. It’s the holiday season, after all.
P: Well, it’s not very important to me. My family lives about 180 kilometres from here. I usually take the train or the coach.
A: You don’t sound excited about it.
P: Well, we are not really a very close-knit family. I have three brothers, and they’ve spread out all over the place. We rarely get together as a family any more.
A: Well, I try to get home as soon as possible. We’re a big family - there are six of us - children - so it’s always a lot of fun.
P: Six kids?
A: Yes. And we’re all really close. My brothers are married, so it makes for a very crowded home over the holiday. And there are too many people to cook for, so we end up going out to dinner a lot. That’s also fun.
P: Well, at my home, my mother loves to cook, so when we get home she often cooks big meals. We have leftovers for days.
