Ich habe heute den Brief an meine zukünftige Gastfamilie geschrieben, der zum Auswahlverfahren dient. Würde mich freuen, wenn mir jemand Verbesserungstips geben könnte, da dieser Brief ja ausschlaggebend für die Gastfamilie ist. Danke schonmal
Dear host family,
first I want to say thank you for reading this letter and giving me the chance to introduce myself to you:)
Now I want to tell you something about me:
My name is Antonia, but nearly everybody calls me Toni, so you can too. My birthday is on 3rd May 2004, so I am 15 years old right now. I live in a house in a nice, german village with my parents, my sister Johanna, who is 4 years younger than me and my cat Tombi. At home I have some responsibilities, they are: putting the dishwasher in and out, collecting the laundry and bringing it to the laundry room and cleaning the stairs. If my mother needs help with any other homework I help her too. Family is the most important part of my life and I really enjoy spending time with my hole family, so also my grandparents and all my uncles, aunts and cousins.
I am cheerfully, friendly, determined and a little crazy person .My favorite thing to do in my freetime is meeting my friends. Together we like to have a picnic, go to a coffee shop, cooking or baking together or just talk, but we like best to have a girlsnight with movies, music, much candy and a lot of craziness. My favorite sport is dancing. I go to ,Zumba" ones a week and I am also part of a ,Garde Danceclub" its a dance style thats most known in the area of cologne, which is the nearest million city to my hometown (I will add some photos and videos of it, so you can get an impression of it). Sometimes I play piano at home. I had piano lessons some years ago, but I wasnt very good at it, so today I just play at home for myself and its fun. Also I really like reading books, mostly love novels. And what cant be missing is listening to music or podcasts, while everything I do. My favorite artists are: Avicii, Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, James Arthur and some more.
I would say I mostly like to go to school, because I can see my friends there and I have nice teachers. I try to pay attention in class everyday and learn as much as I need for tests, so I have good grades. My favorite subjects are PE and art. The subject I like least is french. I am also a class represantative and have fun to respresent the opinions and wishes of my classmates.
I want to make a good graduation after the 13th grade in germany and preferable go to an university after school. I would like to study something creativ, but I dont know wich occupation I want to have later. I also want to travel a lot and experience many new things. I want my exchange year to be the start of getting to now knew parts of the world . I want to see as much of the world as I can, and to live with an american family and going to an american High School is an amazing chance, to experience another, exciting country, as a part of it and not as a tourist. Because the world is so wide and there are so unbelievable many things to experience, I want to use my chances instead of spending all my time in my familiar area. I want to go through your everyday life, celebrate your traditional celebrations with you and see the difference beetween your family life in the U.S and mine in Germany. And I also want to bring a little piece of Germany to you, so we both can learn something new.
I hope you liked reading my letter and got a good expression of me. I would be really happy, if you decide to become my host family, show me your life and be a part of an amazing time in my life.
Wish you the best
