My name is Yana. I am 11 years old.
I want to tell you about my Granny.She is a very beautiful and clever woman. She has got long fair curly hair, grey-green eyes, a straight nose, a little mouth with pink lips and light skin.
Though my Granny’s age is 65, she is very energetic. She teaches my classmates and me English. She is a very talented teacher. It is very interesting at her lessons because she teaches us in an interactive way and tells us about her traveling around different countries.
My Granny traveled by ship around many European capitals: London, Stockholm, Paris, Copenhagen, Oslo, Reykjavik, Helsinki and a town Glasgow in Scotland. She tells us a lot about the culture, traditions and customs of those countries.
My Granny is very nice. She is always kind and ready to help. I often ask her for advice. She is very persistent and always achieves her aims. Every summer we go to different interesting places. It’s very exciting. We are also fond of going shopping together.
I love her very, very much!
