I learned a little about my host family today: I'll be living with a woman named Nina M. This was the description of her which I was given. "She is an older woman, about 60. She is already retired. She has children and two grandchildren, but lives alone (as far as I remember she has a cat). Her granddaughter is 8 or 9 years old and she sometimes comes to visit. Her grandson is older, he studies at a university. She likes watching TV. She also has a kitchen garden and obviously likes to work there. She likes to talk and to take walks from time to time. She lives in a three-rooms apartment not far from the centre of Vladimir. According to our teachers she is very hospitable, caring and considerate."
