Host family letter

Ich weiß dass es dieses Thema schon super oft gibt aber könntet ihr euch vielleicht meinen host family letter anschauen? Ich gehe nach England und bin mir nicht sicher ob ich zu viele amerikanische Wörter benutzt habe und dann halt noch die Grammatik und so... Das würde mir jedenfalls ziemlich weiterhelfen!

Dear host family,

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this letter. I hope that it will give you an short impression about me and my life and I’m looking forward to meet you!

My name is Elisa-XX, but I prefer to be called just Elisa. I’m 14 years old and I’ll become 15 on XX XXth. My friends describe me as an open-minded, friendly, reliable, and creative person, who is smiling very often.
I live in XX, a small village about XX kilometers west of Berlin. I am living here with my parents, my three younger siblings and our dog. My parents are both physiotherapists and they have their own practice. My siblings are called XX, XX and XX and they are X, X and X years old. My grandparents are living next to us and they often do bike trips with us. Every weekend our whole family eats together by my grandparents.

I often have to take care of my siblings when my parents are at work. When it’s summer I go to the playground with them sometimes or we play in our garden. Caring for my siblings, clearing the table, emptying the dishwasher, as well as tidying up my room are things I always had to to. I am often helping in the kitchen, because I love cooking and baking. I am always baking the birthday cakes for my family and I love to make them look great and unique. This year I made my sister a cake looking like a unicorn for her birthday.

Currently I attend the 9th grade of a grammar school in a small town close to where I live. My favorite subjects are english, french, art, music and biology. I love learning languages, that’s why I chose latin as an elective subject this year. Biology is one of my favorite subjects because I think it’s interesting and important to know how your environment works. Someday I want to study medicine and become a pediatrician. In april I’ll do a placement in a pediatrician practice.
Usually my mum is bringing me to school by car and after school I take the bus to go back home, but in summer I take my bike because I love riding the bike and it’s faster than waiting for the bus.

In my free time I love to paint and to draw. I love to draw watercolors but I use other techniques too. I also like to read. When I was younger, I always carried a book with me. Now I don’t do that anymore but I still read a lot. I don’t really have a favorite book but I like The Fault in Our Stars, Harry Potter and the Divergent series.
One of my favorite hobbies is kickboxing. I train twice a week and I have the orange-green belt. Some of my friends do kickboxing too. My friends are very important to me. My best friend is in my class, so we see each other every day and we talk about everything.
With my friends I like to go to the outdoor swimming pool near by us. Sometimes we go shopping or to the cinema and we often listen to music together.
Music is an important part of my life. I’ve been playing the piano for 5 years and since 2 years I play the transverse flute too. I would like to take my flute with me to the UK.

I want to do an exchange year because I’ve always been interested in other cultures and languages. I already did an exchange. At the beginning of this school year, I was in France for 2 months. I really enjoyed my time there and I made a lot of great experiences.
When I was in 8th grade, a boy who was in the USA for one year came into my class and told us about his time as an exchange student. At that time I already thought that it would be cool to do an exchange year and to attend a high school. After I returned from France it came back to my mind and I begann to think about it more seriously. I read a lot about exchange years in the internet and I talked with my parents about it. They found the idea of spending an exchange year good too. I want to go to England because the country always fascinated me. I can’t even say why I’m so interested in it. Maybe it’s the landscape or the culture…
Going to the UK has always been a dream for me and spending a whole year there would be even better.

I think I will get more independent after this year and a little bit more confident too. I also want to improve my english skills. Not only because I do think that it is important to speak good english, but also because I want to take the IB.
I’m looking forward to try new things and making new experiences.

I also can tell you something about Germany and our culture. Because I love cooking, we could cook together or I can cook something „typically german“ .

Thank you again for reading this letter. I’m very excited about getting to know you.

Yours sincerely,

Hey, ich finde deinen Brief super. Natürlich gibt es ein paar Schreibfehler aber so soll es auch sein. Du gehst ja ins Ausland um dein Englisch zu perfektionieren. Ich würde den Brief genau so lassen! Grüße
