    have got

    Pls check this sentence if it is right

    My family has got 11 people. I'm am the eleventh one in my family

    (it means. My parents have got 11 children, and i'm the elventh)

    and:
    MY dream is having a wife


    Ref: the address

    in my country, in a lane, there are a lot of house, so they say 3/5
    it means house no. 3 in lane 5. Maybe there is 50/5 also

    so i don't know how to say it?

    Pls reply me.

    Thanks

    Re: have got

    My family has got 11 people.- There are eleven people in my family
    Or We are eleven in my family
    I'm am the eleventh- OK, but I'm the youngest sounds more natural to me
    MY dream is having a wife- My dream is to have a wife

    Address- it's not a system we use, so just try to make it clear:

    House 3 Lane 5

    Re: have got

    thanks for your reply

    Ref: Family

    Is this sentence wrong? because they don't include their parents

    Can we use 'my family has got"?

    Ref: address

    They often use this writting address. we can't seperate like that

    in French they use this "/" but i don't remember well.

    Maybe "3 sur 5"

    Re: have got

    If you're not including your parents, then we're eleven children/there are eleven children in my family would be better.

    With the address, I gave the best way I could think of for doing it in English, as it's a system we don't use. I really don't know the French way, but we tend to give streets names not numbers, though New York has streets with numbers. I am living in Cambodia at the moment and here, people use things like No 35 Street 63. Mabye using No or # would be OK.
