Peter:'So, let me show you some photos of my family.'
Sally:'Perfect. I'd like to see some photos of you when you were young.'
Peter:'Here you are. This is a photo when I was 4 with my mum and dad at Christmas.'
Sally:'Those are your parents! Both your father and mother look very different now.'
Peter:'Yes, they do. And this is a photo when we were on holiday in France when I was 10.'
Sally:'Who is the man stood next to your father?'
Peter:'That's my uncle Simon. My father's brother. And the woman next to him, is my aunt Joan, my uncle's wife.'
Sally:'And the children in front of them. Who are they?'
Peter:'They are my cousins. My aunt and uncle's children. That's my cousin John and that's my cousin Mary.'
Sally:'And the old man and woman at the back. Are they your grandparents?'
Peter:'Yes they are. My father's parents. The man is my grandfather and the woman is my grandmother.'
Sally:'How many grandchildren do your grandparents have?'
Peter:'Well, there's me, my sister Sarah and my cousins John and Mary. So, they have 2 granddaughters and 2 grandsons.'
Sally:'So, who is the other old man in the photo. Is that your other grandfather?'
Peter:'No. My other grandparents (my mother's parent) aren't in the photo. The old man in the photo is my great-uncle Tom. He's my grandfather's brother.'
Sally:'Ok. This is a more modern photo. That's your sister with her husband and their children, isn't it?'
Peter:'That's right. The boy on the left is my nephew Christopher and the girl next to him is my niece Anna.'
Sally:'Who is woman at the back of the photo?'
Peter:'My aunt Tina.'
Sally:'And the man next to her.'
Peter:'Her partner Jonathan.'
Peter:'Partner is a way to say that a person is in a romantic relationship with another person. So, instead of calling person a husband or a wife of another person, you can call them their partner.'
