My name is Arne, and I live in the south of Germany. I thank you very much, that I have the chance to stay with you and get to know you and your country! 🙂 I’m a great fan of the American way of life and my greatest wish is to learn about it in your country, where I’ve never been before. In my home country Germany, I live together with my mother, my father and my older brother. Nearby is also living my grandmother and my aunt with her family and dog, we see each other quiet often.
I visit a Gymnasium which is not far away from my home. I go there by foot or by bike together with my friends, who visit my class. Even if school is sometimes hard work, I like to go there because I can meet my friends. My favourite subjects at school are English, French, Sports and History. Our school normally finishes at 1 p.m., two times a week at 5 p.m. In my free time, sometimes I’m at home with my mother and my brother, in the evening at about 7 p.m. my dad arrives from work. And I love doing sports: for example I play soccer two times and tennis one time a week. I normally go there by bike. I also love going to the city with my friends to do some shopping or to eat something. Or we go to a friends home. I enjoy visiting people. And I like travelling…When I am at home, I sometimes really like to bake a cake or some cookies and to have it calm and make it cozy. I also like very much watching a soccer game together with my father – even if he’s not so much interested in. I play the piano and sometimes I play videogames, too. Or I take pictures with my camera.
When I’m in America I’d like to get to know you as my host family, to learn directly about your way of life and to tell you about the German way of life. I also think it’s great to meet new friends at school and learn about the different school system and all it’s subjects in the USA.
Finally I greet you from Germany and I’m very happy to have the chance to come to the USA and stay with you.
