Translations of "Sibling"

Q: Bunu İngilizce (Birleşik Krallık) da nasıl dersiniz? Both siblings are utterly unlike. One is aloof while the other is gregarious.
Does this sound natural?
A: it shouldn't be "unlike", it should be "different" or "unalike"

The rest of your sentence is grammatically correct, but it doesn't sound natural for daily conversation, because the words are too long. "gregarious" especially is pretty uncommon if you're just talking between friends.

I'd say
"Both siblings are completely different. One is really quiet while the other is outgoing"

aloof does not exactly mean "really quiet", so you could just say aloof or distant

I want to learn to draw but I haven't put the effort required to achieve that objective

I don't like having too much friends, I just want to have the correct people around me bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: I would just make a few small changes:
"I have two siblings, a brother and a sister" - it's one of those cases where you need to specify the numer of siblings using 'a'
"I like playing guitar or any other kind of musical instrument" - since you're talking about two separate hobbies you can use an 'or' here. Or else it kind of sounds like you might be trying to play guitar and another instrument at the same time. I added 'other' to show that you're interested trying any instrument, but it still shows your reader that you already play guitar.

"I want to learn to draw, but I haven't put in the effort required to achieve that objective." -I added 'in' here. When you're talking about effort it is put in -not just put. "I want to put in the effort"

"I don't like having too many friends" - 'much' is used for something you can't count, "I don't want too much coffee." and "I don't want too many french fries." Friends can be counted, so we use 'many'.

"I just want to have the right people around me" - 'right' instead of 'correct'. It just sounds more natural when you're talking about people.

Q: When you are asked "How many siblings do you have?", do you count yourself?
