Do you know my older brother Giang?
Yes, I know him.  So is he married yet?
(Does he have a family yet?)
Yes, he has a wife already .
How many children does he have?
He has two (children ): one boy and one girl .
How old is the boy?
Eight or nine years old, something like that.
Where does Giang live now, Phong?
Near his parents-in-law (his children's maternal grandparents). The place he lives is very convenient because opposite is the school where the children study and behind the house is the market.  From here to their house is not very far.
