's Letter

Dear host family. Thank you very much for taking me into your family and giving me the opportunity to live in the USA for a few month. I am a girl from Germany who is currently in 10th grade. I would describe myself as a very helpful, creative, open-minded, fun-loving and out-going person. I also love to travel and on the top of my list is America. I want to get to know the different culture, meet new people, try and learn new things and of course improve my English. I like to do sports like ice skating and snowboarding, I love to hang out with my friends and I like to read. I obviously speak German and some English and French, but not fluently. I want to learn fluent and good English in the USA. I would like to live in the USA for half a year because I think there are many differences compared to Germany. I am curious to learn about American culture and traditions and I am looking forward to see new places. I have also often heard that Americans are very nice and open people, which I would of course like to experience for myself. I play the horn in a concert band, which I really enjoy. Four months ago I started ice skating and I really enjoy it. I played basketball in a club for many years, but not anymore. I would really love it if I could join a sports club in American high school, but I am also very open to participate in any other activities. In my free time I like to meet up with friends, I have a really good relationship with them, do sports or read something. I also love baking. I would also like to share some of the German culture with you, for example cook something typically German for you and show you traditional meals. In my future I could well imagine doing something medical or studying biology, but I'm not quite sure yet, first I definitely want to finish school with very good grades. I definitely want to travel and see the different parts of the world. My father works full-time in a company that manufactures milling machines for teeth and my mother works part-time in an engineering office that does sewage treatment planning and operational consulting. In the afternoon she is at home and takes care of other things. I also have a little brother who is almost 3 years younger than me and likes mountain biking. When all four of us are at home, we play games, cook or just talk among each other. We are a close family and it would be great if I could become a part of yours. I am very excited to get to know you and I am looking forward to it. Warm regards Mona
