he language my family usually uses at home is loud. I live in a household with mymother, step father, two stepbrothers, and three whole brothers, along with my dog.
here isalways a lot of commotion with kids running around, the dog barking, usually mom talking onthe phone, and who knows what else.When we talk it is usually about random stuff. Because of the fact that we are usuallydoing different things, and people are usually running around it seems that we don¶t talk much.During the day this is true, but at night the house usually calms down a lot.
here are a lot of nights when my mom, my brothers, and I will just relax and watch
together, or play a game,or even just sit and talk.
here are also some times that we sit and talk with the whole family,including my step dad and his kids, although this is not as common it still happens.
he conversations that usually happen in my house are normally pretty informal. Part of this is because we are always doing different things from one another, but it is also because thereare big age differences within my house and that makes it a little harder to have formalconversations with one another. With this being said, we still do have formal conversations.Every family has times when they all have to sit down and talk about important issues or topics,and when that time comes we all sit down and talk formally. Again, with the big age differences
