Hellow, welcome everybody.My name is Niharika and I am your tutor for today’s lesson.So today we are gonna to talk about a wonderful family,Now we all love spending some quality time with our family members,right ? When comes to talking abouht them,you might get little nervous, because we don’t know the exact relations that you share with them.So today’s lesson,we are gonna to learn the different people of your family.Now very often you might come to cross this question “How many people are there in your family? ” Well, I have about 30,40 people in my family.Well, that’s not we are looking at,What we are looking at is who are your immediate family members, right? So what is the immediate family ?

A immediate family consits of your father, your mother and your siblings.That is if you have a sister or if you have a brother and of course youself. You have to include yourself,because you are a part of this family,right? So siblings would be your sister.Now if she is born before you are born,she wold be your elder sister. And your brother .If he was born after you were born,so he would be your yonger brother.So when you have to talk about your siblings, you wold say I have an elder sister who works for a bank and I have a younger brother who goes to the school.

Now this is your immediate family.That is we also call nuclear family. Now as a family,you live together and that’s why you are a nuclare family.Now you also have a extended relatives who are realated yo your parents. That’s your father side relatives would be your paternal family members and your mother side relatives would be your maternal family members. So let’s write it down here.Your father side family would be paternal and your mother side would be maternal .Now let’s look here.Mr and Mrs Johnoso.

Mr and Mrs Johnoso are your father’ parents and they are your father’s parents,For you, they are your grandparents ,so they are your paternal grandparents ,alright? And your father’ brother.Now he has a brother called Peter and Peter is married to Maria.Now Peter and Maria are a couple and they have a beautiful son called Ben.Now Ben is your cousin and Peter who is your father’s brother would be your paternal uncle and Maria who is Peter’s wife would be your aunt.Now we also have Jenny.Now who is Jenny.enny is your father’s sister.alright? And your father’s sister would be your aunt and she is married to Wiliam.

And William would be your uncle,right? So this is your father side of family.Now,let’s look into your mother side of family.We have Mr and Mrs Smith,So mather comes from the Smith family.Mr and Mrs Smith are your mother’s parents.So for you,they are your maternal grandparents.Your mother also haS a brother called Richard,Richard is married to Kelly.Richard and Kelly have a beautiful daughter called Mary.Now Mary is your cousin.And Richard who is your mother’s brother would be your maternal uncle.And Kelly would be your aunt .Now your mother also has a sister whose name is Lisa.

Now Lisa is engaged to Ron,so they are not married yet.But Lisa is engaged to Ron,so Ron is her fiance.So for you Lisa would be your maternal aunt.So this is your extened family and here we learned about your paternal side of relatives as well as your maternal relatives.Now that we learned about the basis of what is nuclear family and your paternal side of family as well as your maternal side of family.Let’s get into the details of your father side of family that how they ralated to your parents and to you and to your sibilings of course.Now Mr Johnoson.

He is also the son of Mr Johnoson and Mrs Johnoson’s.So Peter would be your father’s brother.For your mother,Peter would be the brother in law.And for you,Peter would be your paternal uncle.Maria. Now Peter is married to Maria. Maria would be your father’s sister in law,as well as,as your father ,of course,is married to your mather.For your mother also,Maria would be her sister in law.And for you and for your sibilings,Maria would be your aunt.And Ben,now Ben is Peter and Maria’s son.

So for your father,he is his nephew.And for your mother he is her nephew.And for you,he is your cousin.And let us look at Jenny.Now Jenny.We learned that Jenny is your father’s sister.So she is your patenal aunt.But for your father,she is his sister.Wheras,for your mother ,she is her sister in law.And for you and for your brother and for your sister,Jenny is your aunt.So again,she is your patenal aunt.Wheras she is married toWiliam.And Wilaiam,is for your father ,he is his broter in law.For your mother again,he is her broter in law.

Similarly Ben would be your mother’s nephew as well as your father’s nephew.And for you,he is gonna be a little cousin.And Jenny and Wiliam,that is zone,that Jenny is your mother’s sister.So Jenny would be her sister.For your father,she would be his sister in law.And for you,she is gonna be a aunt and she’s gonna be a maternal aunt.Wheras Wiliam would be your mother’s brother in law.
