V. Time to Read

1. Read Helen’s letter home about the members of her English host family and find the artist’s mistakes at the picture of the Collinses.


We are all individual in appearance, aren’t we? We have different hair, eyes, noses, and lips. But young or old, we are all good-looking. Helen thinks so, too. That’s what she writes about it in her letter.

Dear Mum and Dad,

How are you? I’m fine. Yesterday my English family had guests: Jennifer’s parents came to see them. The whole family got together and we had a wonderful time.

Everyone looked so beautiful! Jennifer was in her nice black dress. Her husband, David, is very handsome. I like his beard and moustache.

Jennifer’s parents are not old: though grandpa; is bald, grandma is grey-haired, their faces are not wrinkled. I think they are young at heart.

The Collinses’ elder child, Mike, is a teenager, he is thirteen. He is very good-looking with his slender figure, long legs and straggly hair. The younger child, Rosy, is only four. She is a sweet, plump girl with curly hair, rosy cheeks and a tiny little nose. She is everybody’s pet.

I am sending you a funny picture of the Collinses. When we went for a walk in the evening, a street artist drew it for us.

I hope you will see who is who.

Write to me soon.

Love, Helen.
