Familie und Zuhause
Talking about your family and asking other people about their families is an important part of everyday conversation.

Perhaps not everyone is lucky enough to have such a wealth of relations, and the second text gives one solution to the problem of mothers who have to go out to work to help the family budget.

In the third passage a German girl writes to her English pen-friend about growing up in the family home in Munich.
