  4. I am going to describe my mother because I look up to her.
    She is very important in my life. She is very talkative and I think she is one of the most patient persons that I have ever met. She always knows when you are wrong and she makes you smile. She is very friendly and nice because she is always laughing, but sometimes she is a little picky.
    She is middle size, and she has short dark hair. She is slim too.
    My mother works in an office but only in the afternoons so I can see her often.
    We have a lot of things in commun, but sometimes she gets angry with me but she never screams at me.
    Greetings.
    Laura.

  7. Dear Angeles,
    I’m going to tell you about Fermín.
    He is my eldest brother; he is 9 years older than me. He lives in Liaño near Santander with his wife. He has two children. His boy, Fermín, is 13 years old and his girl, María, is 10. I think he is a good father.
    He studied Law and he works at the town hall in a small village of Cantabria, his wife is a doctor.
    He is a little taller than me. People say we are equal physically although he hasn’t got a beard.
    I don’t see him often because his children go to school in Astillero and his family does their life there, but we get on well when we are together. He always has been an example for me, I think this is because he is the eldest and I wished I was like him but nowadays we are very different. He is the most serious of my brothers but there is something I don`t like about him, he lives his own life and he doesn’t care much about the rest of the family.
    Greetings,
    Borja
