Good evening my friends, my name is Jay and I’m from New York.

My family still there but I have


moved to this city for my study and work.

I work for a bank as a teller. I work from eight to five and currently I’m up to my neck in work.

But I also go to the evening class to study English. You know, before I was so bad at English.

I had finished an intermediate level course before I came here. But I’m a lot better now, thanks for
this new way of learning.

There are five people in my family: my dad, my mom, my elder brother, my younger sister and me.

We used to live in the same apartment but it’s hard to do so when we keep moving around so
much.

I love reading books. I have read all the book that my friends can mention. I have been
reading since I was six years old.

Now, I’m reading a new book every week. At the moment, I’m reading the book “Rich Dad and
Poor Dad”.

Last week I was reading “ How to get more done in less time”.

One of my friends gave me that new book while I was telling him how much I enjoy reading book.

I will have finished this one by end of this week and I will be reading a new one next week.

Besides, I like surfing the Net. I often surf the Net deep into the night. I guess I’m addicted to the
Internet.

I can’t help it. I can’t help searching, watching and reading something when I’m with the computer.

I have been saving for 10 years for my own apartment. I’m still working on that until I have
had enough.

It costs a lot for an accommodation in a city like this. But I think I can make it. I’m sure I will have
done it before I’m 30 years old.
