This week, we have a story written by a learner in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. The author, Choolawtee Beeharry-Paray, came to Canada from Mauritius, to be closer to her children. She likes to help people. She says that in her country, you need a strong house for cyclone weather.
My daughter and I look similar. We both have long hair and we both are tall, but I'm a little bit shorter. Our eyes are the same dark colour, and face is the same. She likes girls, but she hasn't any daughters. She has three boys and I have three daughters and one boy. We both like to cook and like to eat vegetables. I like to watch TV, and she likes to sing and listen to music. We both speak the same language. She speaks English better than I do. She doesn't like window shopping and I like it so that is a little bit different compared to her. She lives in Esterhazy, and I live in Yorkton. I love her.
