Doumo mina-san, riizhu desu !(^o^)!, hello there everyone, welcome back to http://japaneselearningonline.blogspot.com with me riizhu let's learn Japanese vocabulary about family (家族).

By the way, do you have siblings?. I have 2 sisters and I don't have brother^^. FYI in Japanese you would use different words, wether you are talking about your own family or someone else's family. For example:
chichi mo haha mo Indonesiajin desu
(my) father and mother are American
otou-san wa doko desu ka?
where are (your) father?

The sentences above can be understood even there is not the pronouns like anata no otou-san or watashi no chichi or whatever. And this is the vocabulary list that we are learning today^^ happy learning:
