Hello, students. You now can learn about Gabriela, an American teenager, as part of “American Teens Talk!” book. I suggest you read and listen to this section several times so you can improve your American English reading and listening comprehension skills. Don’t forget to respond to the prompts in the comments section below so that you can improve your writing skills as well.

Directions: Please listen to the section about Gabriela two or more times.
Directions: Please respond to one of the prompts below in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
- Gabriela changed her mind about
something important in her life (becoming a
nurse instead of a teacher). When have you
changed your mind about something? Does
it seem like a good decision now?
- Gabriela has no brothers or sisters, so she
is an “only child.” Her grandmother had ten
children (eight girls and two boys). What do
you think is the best size for a family? How
many sons and how many daughters would
you like to have? Why do you think this is a
good size for a family?
