Dear host family,
Frist of all I want to thank you for reading my letter and spending time on getting to know me better. In this letter I want to tell you something about myself, my family and my friends.
My name is XXX XXX and I´m from Austria. I´m 14 years old, but when I´ll come to Canada, I´ll be already 15. I live together with my parents, XXX and XXX and my older brother XXX in XXX, a city 2 hours away from Vienna, the capital of Austria.
I’ve already been to Vancouver twice, one time when I was 8, and one time when I was 13 years old. I just stayed for 2 or 3 days, but I was delighted by this beautiful, charming city. So I decided to take part in an exchange programme to learn more about Vancouver, the canadian culture and to improve my english and to make new friends.
My parents like and support my decision, but they also say that they will miss mea nd that they can’t
imagine how it will be when I won’t be at home. I’m really glad to have parents like thisand I love and value them, as well if there are sometimes little arguings.
A great example for me in the family is my brother, who is 6 years older than me. I get along with him very well and we are arguing scarcely.
Nearly every day our family has lunch and dinner together and sometimes, on the weekends, my grandparents and my brother’s girlfriend visit us. Then I help my mother cooking and cleaning the kitchen after eating. Other things which I have to do in the household are keeping my room tidy, setting the table and loading and unloading the dishwasher.
I think that I’m a responsible, humerous , open-minded and friendly girl. Of course I have like everyone else my faults, for excample that I sometimes talk too much and that I spend too much money on clothes.
I also think that I’m a creative person, that’s why I love painting and drawing. The most time of my leisure I spend with sport. I do „Rythmic Gymnastics“ since 9 years, 4 times a week. I love this sport because I have a lot of friends there and I like teh sense of community and the competitions, where I take part.
An other thing which is very important in my life, apart from my family and my sport, are my friends. I spend a lot of time with them. We go shopping, we do DVD-evenings, sometimes we cook dinner together, we go to the cinema or we just meet to talk. I’ve got friends from school, from the sports club , friends who live in other countries, who I met when I was on holiday and others.
My best friend’s name is XXX. I know her since I was 5 years old and we do a lot of things together, she is like a sister for me.
When I’m at home and I’m finished with my homeworks, I’m often listening to music (mostly rock music), reading a book (Ttwilight“ is one of my favourites), telephoning with my freinds or watching TV.
Something, which I love too ver much, is travelling. I’ve been to many different countries and I enjoyed it every time. I like to get to know new cultures, see new places, meet new people and talk other languages.
When I’ll be older, I want to study a language or medicin, but I don’t know exactly and I have still time to decide.
In school my favourite subjects are English, Biology, Frensh and Art. Mostly I go to school with pleasure, most of the teachers are pretty good and I’ve always fun with my friends. I learn three languages at school: English, French and Latin. I’ve also learnd Mandarin, but just for one year and next year I´ll start learning Spanish.
I’m really looking forward to this 5 months and I hope that I will have an awesome time, which I will never forget and that it will be a great experience for me.
Finally I want to thank you again for reading my letter and if you should give me the opportunity to spend with you a great time in Vancouver, I’d do my best as a family member.
Best greetings from Austria,
