Listen to the dialogue and discuss the following questions.
Jill and Martha met last week in class. It’s their first time hanging out and they’re getting to know each other and talking about families.
Jill. So, where does your family come from?
Martha. Well, my dad’s side of the family is from Indiana and my mom’s side of the family is from California. My parents met at college in Florida though, so that’s where I grew up.
Jіll. So do you see your extended family a lot then?
Martha. Not really. My family is pretty small and I don’t have a lot of living relatives left anymore. Actually, I just have one aunt in California and my grandpa in Indiana. I see them maybe once a year.
Jіll. I guess it is kind of far to travel to those states frequently. Do you have a lot of siblings?
Martha. No, actually, I’m an only-child.
Jill. Your family is pretty small then. So, it’s just you, your mom, and your dad basically?
Martha. Well, my parents are divorced and my dad moved back to Indiana a few years ago. So, it’s basically just my mom and me.
Jill. Oh. I’m sorry to hear that.
Martha. That’s OK. My parents fought a lot when they were together, so it’s better that they are divorced.
Jill. You and your mom must be close then.
Martha. We are. I miss her a lot now that I’m at school. I have a picture of us. Want to see?
That’s my mom and me on vacation last year.
Jіll. You really take after your mom! You look like sisters!
Martha. I know. Everyone says we look alike. What about you? Do you have a big family?
Jill. Yeah. I have a really big family. They all live in Florida, so I have six aunts, five uncles, maybe 20 cousins, and two sets of grandparents nearby!
Martha. That sounds like a lot!
Jіll. It is. Plus, I have seven siblings. Two sisters and five brothers.
Martha. Your parents had eight children! That’s so many!
Jill. I know. Our house is crazy. I’m the oldest and I always had to baby-sit!
Martha. How old are your siblings?
Jill. Let’s see… They’re 20, 18, 14, 10, 8, 4, and 1 and a half.
Martha. Whoa! That’s a pretty big age range.
Jіll. I know it’s unusual. My parents just love having kids, I guess.
Martha. So, do you see your family often?
Jill. Yeah. They live about 10 minutes from my apartment. I see them almost every weekend. I see my extended family about once a month too.
Martha. That must be so nice to have such a big family close by.
Jіll. It is. It can be a little hectic sometimes, but it’s nice to know that there are so many people who can help you out if you need it.
Martha. That’s so different from what I’m used to.
Jіll. You should come over for dinner at our house one Sunday. They love to meet my friends.
Martha. Sure. That’d be fun!
Jill. OK. Let me tell my mom and I’ll ask her what date will be good and let you know.
Martha. Sounds good.
