Hello, boys and girls! My name is Bobby.
And my name is Tobby. This is our friend Mobby.
Welcome to our lesson.
Today we would like to start our lesson with some pictures.

We call both of them parents.

There is no Russian translation of this word.
You also need to know that people mostly use short variants “granny, grammy or grandma” instead of “grandmother” and “grandpa, grandad or grampa” instead of “grandfather”.
