Here’s another story from Class 1B’s descriptions of one of their family members. When you’re finished, take the quiz to test your understanding!
My mother-in-law’s name is Qing Yan Wu. She’s 61 years old. She was born in Taishan, Guangdong, China. She came to the United States in 2003.
My mother-in-law is a housekeeper. She works at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. Her work is from 4 pm to 12 am. She has worked there for about eleven years. She likes her job because it is not very hard and the employee benefits are good.
She has a daughter and a son. Her daughter’s name is Chun Xia Ruan and her son’s name is Li Ming Ruan. They’re both married. So I am the daughter-in-law. I live with her son and her grandson in Brooklyn. Her daughter still lives in Connecticut.
My mother-in-law lives with her daughter, but she comes back to Brooklyn and stays with us when she has days off. She rests on Wednesdays and Thursdays. She takes a casino bus from Connecticut to Brooklyn for about three hours. She got married to my father-in-law in 1974. They both work at the casino.
My mother-in-law is average height and average weight. She has short black hair.
My mother–in-law is very friendly and polite. She’s a very good mother, wife, grandmother, and mother-in-law. She’s responsible and honest. She likes to cook and watch TV. She cooks every day. She also likes to work in her yard. She planted some vegetables, fruit, and flowers in it.
My mother-in-law is healthy. She eats a lot of fruit and vegetables. And she exercises twice a week. In her free time, she likes to stay in bed and take a nap, because she has a backache.
“I like New York. When I am retired, I want to live in New York!” She said. Why? Because her family and many friends are here. And also going shopping and going to the doctor are very convenient.
