About Me! - my homework for English class

Me and my family:

My name is Nora, I'm from Tripoli and I'm 15. I'm going to be in the second year of secondary school. My father is a businessman. My mother's name is Therese and she's an American Muslim so she changed her name to Khadija. She's an English teacher. I have three brothers and two sisters. The oldest one is Adam and he's sixteen. He's going into the second year of secondary school too. I was born second, after me is my sister Sara. She's thirteen. After her is Yusef, he's eleven, then Jenna who is nine. The youngest is Ibrahim and he's going to be seven soon.

Me and my home:

I live in a flat in Ben Ahure. It's too small for eight people. It has three small bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, a TV room and a living room. We have a small, ugly garden, but we're building a new house on our farm in Ain Zarah. It's big enough. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two sitting rooms and a big garden. Next to the garage is a small guest house with a bedroom, bathroom and a small kitchen. In the garden there is a laundryroom.

My free time:

Well, in my free time I like to do a lot of things, like travelling, visiting reletives and friends, having picnics at our farm. I like to go to the internet and sending letters to my friends and family in America and at the same time I chat with them. I also like writing in my blog and opening useful websites.
