Hi Lotg & Dave,

Thank a lot for explaining. This collevtive noun in English is so tricky for a non-native English speaker like myself. I still pause for a moment when I want to say in English that my father, my mother and my brothers and sisters, they all live in Fukuoka because I am not sure whether to say "My family live in Fukuoka." or "My family lives in Fukuoka.".
