    whole / all

    Hello,

    Are these sentences correct?

    My whole family is here.

    All my family is here.


    Thanks

    Yes. You will also hear "All my family are​ here".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: whole / all

    Hello.

    What do you think about: "The entire family is here" ? As far as I know "whole" and "entire" have almost the same meaning, but I'm not sure whether my sentence sounds good.

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
