Tell me about your family?

There are three members in my family. Myself, my beautiful wife and my cute and handsome son. We life in a double stories house, about 2 kilometers from the town. My wife and I work at the same office. Both of us are pharmacist. My son is almost ten months and he likes to smile and laugh all over the time.


- Thanks : Dean

My take on this would be:

There are three members in my family. Me, my beautiful wife and my cut and handsome son. We live in a two story house, about 2 kilometers from the town. My wife and I work at the same office. Both of us are pharmacists. My son is almost ten months old and he likes to smile and laugh all of the time.

I hope that helps. ;-)

I agree with Red's corrections, except I would make those first two sentences a single sentence, thus:
  • There are three in my family--me, my beautiful wife, and my cute and handsome son.
Also, I would say about two kilometers from town (omitting the the).

What do you think?

:)

We life in a two story house.

:?: :wink:
Why do you use life but not live?

As I know, life is a noun. :D
We live in Taiwan.
He's full of life.
