What does the word family mean to you? An American study in 2006 showed that people today 21. Over 99% of the people who were interviewed agree that a husband, a wife, and a child are a family. At the same time, 94% see a parent with a child as a family, 91% say a husband and a wife, without children, are a family, and 81% think a man and a woman, with a child, but not married, are a family too.

The study also found that 22 is very important in the modern thinking on family. Though 81% think a man and a woman, not married, with a child, are a family, the percentage (%) drops to 40% if the couple doesn’t have a child. This is also true with same-sex couples. About 60% see two men, or two women, with a child, as a family, but only 32% think so when the couple doesn’t have a child.

In the study, those who see two men or two women that live together as a family often find it OK for same-sex couples to get married. 23. However, not everyone opens their arms to same-sex couples: the study said 30% have no problem seeing pets as part of one’s family, but they do not think a same-sex couple is a family.

Today I got a letter from Jenny, my new friend in America. I wrote her last week, and it was my first time to write a letter in English. I was worried that she wouldn’t get my letter. But she did, and she wrote back a nice long letter. She told me a lot about her family, school life, and the things she likes to do on holidays. I found we both love watching basketball games and think of Michael Jordan as the greatest player ever.

I can’t wait to get a letter from Jenny again. It’s so much fun to share things with a foreign friend. In my next letter, I will tell her some interesting things about my school.

Dear Lily Brown,

During my first two years in junior high school, I never met any girls I liked. 28 --- a girl came into my life. Diana is a new student in my class. She is not only beautiful but also nice to people. Almost all the boys in my class like her, and 29. She often talks to us happily, and I am worried that she may like other boys.

Last Thursday, I decided to ask her to be my girlfriend. But before I spoke, my nose started bleeding! It was so embarrassing. I wished 30 .

Dear Lily, do you think she still wants to talk to me after that? What should I do?

Very worried boy,

Alec: So, what do you think about it?

Ellie: It’sinteresting.

Alec: Oh, no, don’t say that.

Ellie: The first thing you should know about Olivia is that she’s scared of anything with six legs. I don’t think she’ll be able to walk past the gate of Buzzing World.

Alec: But she loves butterflies! Well, she loved the photos of butterflies I took last time I was there.

Ellie: Only when they’re not moving.

Alec: Fine. I’ll just take her somewhere else, and that’d be OK. Right?

Ellie: Umm, you’re taking her to Wavelength for dinner?

Alec: What’s wrong with that?!

Ellie: I wouldn’t say a dead fish is really her idea of a nice dinner, and this restaurant sells seafood

Alec: Now you’re wrong about this one. She loved my mom’s fish balls. She had several last time!

Ellie: OK, let’s ask someone else. Oh, there’s Lori. Hey, Lori, could you look at Alec’s plan? He’s taking Olivia out.

Lori: Wow! Everything’s written down on paper! Hmmm… I thought you wanted her to be your girlfriend.

Alec: I do!
