Meine Eltern und ich haben jetzt den Parents Letter geschrieben und ihr sollt doch mal bitte gucken ob das so in ordnung ist und ob sich noch fehler eingeschlichen haben.
Dear host family,
First of all we want to thank you for giving our son Timo the chance to become an exchange student and to take part in your daily life.
We are grateful that you will help us to make his wish come true .
Timo was born in summer 1995, here in Germany.
We live in a little town in the north of Germany, with 14000 inhabitans.
He is fascinated by the USA. Timo has wanted to travel there for a long time.
One day he came to us and told us about his idea to do a High School year in the USA.
At the beginning we did not know how to cope with him decision because we love Timo and we cannot imagine to live without him one year .
But he convinced us, so we agreed and now he talks about his feelings, expectations and anticipations everyday.
It is his biggest personal wish to know a new culture, a new state, friendly people and improve his
We know that a High School year means very much for Timo and hope that he will have a great experience and that you will give him the feeling to be a part of your famliy. Timo is interested and sociable and because of this, it won’t be a problem for him to integrate himself in your family.
We have do not have any doubts because he is doing good at school.
So we think that he will take great affords to have a successful year at an American high school.
At home he has got some chores.
He hast o empty the trash, remove the dishwasher, vacuuming the rooms and usually helps setting the table.
He doesn´t like it, but he always do it.
Apart from that he helps his two years younger sister with her homework.
When he meets new people he might seem a little reserved at the first moment but as he gets to know people and starts to feel confident around them he is very responsible and authentic.
Timo loves music, he plays drums, too.
But it is not his only hobby, so he likes read, travel and plays football, too.
His friends mostly like his honestly and cooperative character.
He is a very helpful boy, who likes his friends.
Every weekend he meets his friends.
But on sundays we, as a family, go on trips like to the local swimming pool, visit family friends or go to events in bigger cities.
We hope this letter helped you to get a first impression of Timo and our family life in Germany.
Please feel free to ask us if there is anything you wish to be clarified or if you would like to know more about our family
