  • I am Teacher Tiffani and today I am going to teach you How to introduce your family

  • in English.

  • Are you ready?

  • Well then, let's jump right in.

  • As an English learner, one of the first skills you learn is how to introduce yourself properly

  • in English.

  • You learn how to talk about your appearance, your personality, and your hobbies.

  • And usually, the next thing you have to do is talk about your family.

  • But, the problem is, you don't know how to actually speak fluently in English about

  • your family.

  • Well, don't worry, there is a quick and useful 4-step formula that will help you to

  • speak clearly about your family.

  • STEP 1 : Give an interesting piece of information about your family

  • The purpose of this step is to grab the attention of the person listening to you.

  • Your goal is to help them see the general character of your family.

  • For example, your fact can be a habit that you find unique.

  • My family and I usually spend Saturday nights eating pizza and watching old movies.”

  • Or your fact can be a funny or memorable story.“One of my best memories with my family

  • is when we traveled to Europe for 10 days.

  • The airport lost all of our luggage, so we had to wear the same clothes for three days.

  • But we just laughed about it and still had a great time.”

  • Or you can choose to say - Why they are special to you.

  • “I love my family dearly because they support me in everything that I do.

  • They are my biggest fans.”

  • STEP 2 : List the individuals in your family. The purpose of this step is to give the basic

  • details about your family.

  • For example, how many are in your family and who they are.

  • There are five people in my family including me.

  • My father, my mother, me, my younger brother, and my younger sister.”

  • Now STEP 3 : List details for each family member.

  • For this step, you will begin to give more details about each member of your family.

  • The details that you want to list for each person are:

  • First, their appearance. “My father is a very handsome man.

  • Many people say he also has very kind eyes.”

  • Second, their personality or character. “He is actually a very kind and considerate person."

  • Third, their job or education. “For the last 15 years my dad has worked

  • for Apple as a leading Web Developer.

  • He loves his job.”

  • And fourth, their hobby.

  • But, his main hobby is skiing.

  • So, he likes to travel to Canada every year during the Christmas holiday.”

  • Remember that you need to this for each of your family members.

  • This will make your introduction of your family sound more natural.

  • It will also show that you are a confident English speaker.

  • And finally, STEP 4 : Wrap up your intro. Give a final statement that summarizes once

  • again what your family means to you.

  • My family means the world to me and without them I would not be who I am today.”

  • So, with these 4 steps, you will now be able to fluently introduce your family in English

  • like a native English speaker.

  • Now, try to use these steps at least one time today.
