Hello. My name is Jane. I am 19 years old and live in London, the capital of Britain.

Last year I graduated from high school, and now study sports science at a university. I also work as a sales clerk at a small store; it’s a part-time job.

At the moment, I live at home with my family. My mother works in an office of a company (she is an office manager), and my father delivers breads to shops (he drives a truck). I have a younger brother, Ryan. He is still in high school.

In the evening, I help my mother prepare dinner. We like curry chicken and rice, roast beef with broccoli and mashed potatoes, and shephard’s pie.

In my free time, I go out with my best friend. We often walk in the park, visit the city center, or a shopping mall. Sometimes we eat fast-food such as pizza or shawarma.

My goal is to become a sports teacher. My friend wants to open a clothes boutique.
