This is a reading comprehension paragraph about describing family members. It is from the perspective of an U.S. exchange student studying abroad in Ecuador. He describes his Ecuadorian host family as well as his U.S. family. It uses the grammar structures of SER, modifying adjectives to their nouns, discussing age, as well as family member vocabulary. I wrote this for students to translate the paragraph then answer reading comprehension questions in complete sentences. It is also intended to be a guide for students to create their own paragraphs describing their family.
