My Penpal from China

Write a letter back to your penpal.

Ni Hao! (This means Hello! in Mandarin.)

Dear Ling,
My name is Ling. I am from Peking, China. China has the largest population in the world. I am the only child in my family. My father is a computer engineer. My mother always stays at home to take care of us. I help her do household chores such as washing dishes, folding clothes, and emptying the trash can. What do your parents do? Do you also help your parents with the chores? When I finish my homework and chores, I play piano and sometimes I practice with friends. Classical music is my favorite kind of music. I want to be a musician when I grow up . What type of music do you like? What do you want to do when you grow up? Yours truly, Ling
