I have no brothers or sisters so I have no any nephews or nieces. But I have some cousins which have children. How are called cousin's children in relation for me in English?

Hello krig,

The child of your cousin is your first cousin, once removed.

First cousins are people who share the same grandparents. Second cousins are people who share the same great-grandparents.

Once removed means that there is a generation gap between the people.

 

Thus you and your cousin have the same grandparents and so are first cousins (and we just day 'cousins').

Your children and your cousin's children are second cousins as they share the same great-grandparents but are on the same level generationally.

You and your cousin's children are first cousins once removed.

 

The name we use in everyday conversation is niece (for your cousin's daughter) or nephew (for their son); they would call you uncle.

I have a nephew Rayan, he is 9 years old. I see him occasionally, but when I see him I play football and playstation game with him.

Yes, I have lots. One of them lives nearby so I always see him. He is six years old. We have one thing in common. We bouth and his mother, my cousin's wife, study English

I have two nephews, they are 5 and 3 years old. When I see them I play with them.

I have one sister, and she got married three years ago. And now i have one nephew, he is two years old. He's cute but i can't see him often because my sister is living far away. So if i want to meet them, i need to contact them with my phone.

I have a niece.She is 19 years old.She is a beautiful girl.

I have five nephews and two nieces but i do not see them because i live abroad.
