's Letter

Hello future host family, thank you so much for being willing to participate in the exchange program. My name is Theresia. At the time I intend to come to the US I will be 16 years old. I'm very happy that I have the chance to do an exchange year in the USA. I hope it will be a good experience for you and, of course, for me too. I want to learn the language well and hope you will not feel uncomfortable when my English isn't very good at the beginning. I live together with my mum, my dad and my 17-year-old brother in a village close to Berlin. As a family we often, but not always, spend our free time together. Traveling is a thing we enjoy very much. During holidays, for example, we were at the Baltic Sea as well as the Mediterranean several times, but also visited some cities abroad like Prague, Barcelona and London. Moreover, we often go on a trip to the capital of Germany (Berlin). At home, of course, everybody has to do some household chores, for example washing the dishes, cleaning the rooms and floors, and helping with the laundry. And, finally, we usually have dinner together in the evening and talk about what each of us experienced during the day. During school terms we regularly have breakfast together and prepare for school in the morning. My older brother is currently taking his final examinations and is planning to start college/university in October 2022. That's the reason why he doesn't attend lessons at school anymore. My father has been working as a teacher for English and Russian at our school for almost 20 years now. My mother works as a social worker at another school. After school I usually do my homework or learn for the next test. After that I like meeting my friends. If the weather is too bad, I enjoy watching some series on Netflix, for example. But also playing boardgames and reading is something I like doing. Life in our family is alright. My best friend will also do an exchange year. But she wants to go to Canada. That's really cool because when I come back to Germany after that year we will attend our home school in the same year again and take our school leaving examinations together. As I have already mentioned, after school I often meet my friends outside. Mostly we spend our time in the village or sometimes in Berlin. We like to go to the cinema to watch the latest movies or just have fun there. Until recently, I have been playing badminton in the neighboring village. I liked it because it isn't a kind of sport where I have to move too much. Of course, it is strenuous and demanding, but not as much as, for example, playing soccer or doing athletics. I also like playing volleyball and table tennis with friends in school (during the breaks). I am really looking forward to staying in the US for such a long time, gaining great experiences, getting to know a lot of new people - and meeting you. Kind regards, Theresia
