Ask Task : Aunty Jen Gives Isabella Some Advice


Listen to Jennifer speaking about her neice Isabella.

Hi everyone, this is Jennifer for Learning English Matters. They have asked me to speak to you today about my niece. My niece’s name is Isabella and I’m going to answer some questions for you so here we go.


The first question, can you describe your niece?

Well, my niece Isabella is nearly 2 years old. She is the cutest little girl in the whole world and I love her dearly. She always has a smile on her face and she is so much fun to be with and to spend time with. You can never feel sad when you’re with Isabella. It’s impossible. She has dark hair. She has beautiful brown eyes and to be honest, she has the cutest little Buddha belly in the world because she loves eating her food. She’s a food connoisseur.


The next question, what are her favorite toys?

Really, her favorite toys are not really toys at all. I would say that her favorite toys are her two dogs. She has two Labrador Retrievers and she loves playing with them. They’re big and they’re like horses for her. And in fact, she likes to ride them like horses. I don’t know if they love that too much but it’s great to watch. She loves feeding them her food and their food as well. She giggles and laughs its great.


If you had one piece of advice for her when she grows up what would that be?

My one piece of advice to her is to not sweat the small stuff. It’s so easy in today’s world to get stressed about things, about little things. When in reality, it takes so much energy to create that stress and to have that stress and it’s really unnecessary and it‘s something that I learned as I got older and unfortunately, I think it really takes growing and getting older to understand that. But, if I had one piece of advice for her, that’s what it would be. Don’t sweat the small stuff.


Okay, this is Jennifer for learning English matters. Thank you for your time.
