I am Igor Stepanov. Igor is my first name and Stepanov is my family name (surname). I was born on May 16, 1980 in the city of Moscow. I would like to tell you some words about my family. My family is not very large. I’ve got a mother, a father, a sister and a brother. There are five of us in the family.
My mother is a teacher of music. She works at school. Children love her. She is fond of her profession. She has taught me to understand music. From her I learnt to play the piano when I was six.
She is a good-looking woman with black hair. She is forty-two but she looks much younger. She is not tall but slim.
My father is a lecturer. He teaches English at the University of Foreign Languages. He has got many students. He is involved in the students’ exchange program with Great Britain. So he often takes his students to Great Britain. He is an experienced teacher, and I like to listen to his stories about his job and his trips to Great Britain.
