My name is Finn and I would like to spend a year in the US because I’m very interested in meeting new people and I would like to improve my English.
My family is living in Germany. I have a little brother who’s two years younger. We spend a lot of time together and do some sports like tennis, soccer, table tennis, mountain biking and other in- and outside activities. I go to a high school. My favorite subjects are Maths, English and physical education.
My mother works as an ophthalmologist, my father works as a social worker. Since they are divorced,my brother and I live with my mother,but we often see our dad.
I really like animals. My favorite animals are dogs. It would be a great pleasure if my host family would have a pet.
I’m really interested in all kinds of sports. My favorite sport is tennis.I’ve been playing tennis since I was seven years old. In the last couple years I played a lot of tournaments.
I’m also interested in playing soccer. For four years I have been playing soccer in a local club but I has do stop of an injury two years ago.
My family goes skiing every year since I am five years old. Until two years ago my grandfather had a cottage in Switzerland where we often went skiing.
I have been playing the piano for eight years, but today I practice it seldom and I will probably stop it going to the States.
In my holidays and at the weekends I play computer games. I like to go to the cinema with friends, but I don’t watch TV very often.
My family likes traveling a lot. I am interested in sight-seeing and I’m curious to get to know new people with different habits in various countries. Two Years ago we travelled to the “New England States” for three weeks-that was a great experience for me. At the beginning we stayed two days in Boston, then we took a bus to Maine to stay there for a week and afterwards we drove by car the whole coast along to New York. As a matter of fact I really appreciated this vacation very much and I loved the American way of life. That is why i am really looking forward to spend a longer period of time in the United States.
I would be very pleased to be a part of your family for a year.
