La familia  Family

In this lesson you'll learn to talk about the members of your family.  

In the photo above you see how to say, the mother, the mom, the father, the dad, etc.  But when you talk about your family members, you're going to use the word(s) for my: mi, mis.

 English  Spanish
 my brother  mi hermano
 my sister  mi hermana
 my brothers, my siblings  mis hermanos
 my sisters  mis hermanas

If you have more than one, use mis instead of mi for my.  
Also, notice that hermanos is less specific than hermanas.  
Mis hermanos can mean my brothers or my siblings.  It assumes that at least one of your siblings is male.  
Mis hermanas means my sisters.  

Of course you have more or other family members who are just as important in your life.  
Here are some of the ones you may want to know first:

 English  Spanish
 grandparent  el abuelo, la abuela
 niece, nephew  el sobrino, la sobrina
 uncle, aunt  el tío, la tía
 cousin  el primo, la prima
