First of all, I want to thank you for reading my letter in which I want to introduce myself and tell you something about my family, hobbies, everyday life and my hopes and expectations for my high school year.
My name is Ben and I live with my parents and my two cats in a small town. We have a house with a small garden. This is about 10 minutes from a larger city.
My favorite subjects are the sciences, especially physics and chemistry. In my spare time, I also like to watch the stars and planets with my telescope. Besides English, I’m also studying French and Spanish. My mom drives me to school in the morning on her way to work and I take the bus back home in the afternoon.
One of my hobbies is to build and program computers and robots. My friend and I have participated in an international robotics competition and we’ve now been chosen to go to the world finals.
Until last year I’ve played Tennis competitively in a team for 3 years, but now I just play it for fun. The thing I like about Tennis is that you can turn the game around and still win, even if the odds are against you. I’ve also been playing Golf for some time now. My dad and I enjoy watching American Football on the weekends, unfortunately only on TV, so I hope to get the chance to watch some real matches while I am in the US.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, playing the guitar and watching movies with my friends. I also started to distribute newspapers once a week to earn some money for my high school year.
On weekends, my parents and I often go to downtown or spend time with friends. We all like to travel and have been to several countries together.
I’ve been to the US before and really like the country and people. This high school year will be a great opportunity for me to experience the American way of life by being part of it. I am looking forward to attending an American high school, taking different courses and making new friends. I’m open to try and get involved in as many new things as possible.
As I am an only child it would be nice to maybe be in a family with other children. I am confident that I can adjust well and will enjoy being part of your family.
I want to thank you for considering me as a student to take into your home.
