What is a photo frame?

Hi MissRockForest smiley,

A photo frame is a square or rectangle made of wood or plastic, with glass. You put a picture or photo in it then hang it on the wall or put it on your desk.

Thank you so much BluePixieWand{LearnEnglish Kids team}! Now I can study it so I can use “photo frame” to make a sentence out of it.

My family has 3 members. My mum, my dad and me. I'm an only child but I wish I had siblings. A robot can be a part of a family if this is something very important for you. In my opinion, a part of a family can be a pet or an important object for you, for example a bear or a doll.
I am same with you,I am an only child. I don’t wish for siblings though. A family can be powerful when they help each other. Friends come and go but family is forever.

What does it mean if you are raised by your grandma or granddad?

 

Hi TopazXylophoneTonight,smiley


If you are raised by your grandma or granddad, it means that they take care of you while you are growing up.
