About myself and my family

Xieng Hello my name is Xieng Yang. I was born in 1988. So I'm 21 years old and I'm a student at Xayadeth College. Now I live in Khoua Thi Neuang village, but my family live in Vieng Savanh village. It is my hometown. Viengsavanh is a small village in Pak Ou district, Luang Prabang province, Lao PDR. There is an agriculture school, a primary school and there is a river flowing through my village. It's comfortable to swim and go fishing and there is also a bridge across the river. There are about seventy houses in Viengsavanh village. It's clean, quiet and not polluted at all, but it's sometimes a bit noisy, because my house is near the road and Nam Xeuang River, so there are many cars, trucks and boats passing the house every day. The weather is quite hot in the after noon, but it's cold in the evening and foggy in the morning. I like it very much and I often visit my family when it's our school and my place work holiday.

Xieng There are nine people in my family. My father's name is Gerfong. He is 48 years old and he is a farmer. He works hard in the field every day. My mother is a vendor. She is 45 years old. Her name is Chong and she has a small shop in my house. I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. My brother's names are Mr. Bounpha, Mr. Ya Yang and Mr. Bounchan. My sisters' names are Miss Maly, Miss Mary and Miss Arina. Everyone is studying, none helps my parents and that's the problem of my parents nowadays.
