First, I want to say thanks for your interest to my person. My name is Herbert and I am a boy from Germany and I want to visit a high school in the USA next year.
I would like to introduce myself. I was born in a small town in the south of Northern Germany. I as an only child live together with my mother, my father, and my cats in our house in a rural region.
In my free time I like to be outside and meet my friends. With my friends I often go swimming or watch a film in the cinema or TV. Another thing what I like is going to amusement parks.
I am voluntarily member of the youth fire department of my village, because I think it is important to help other persons. My other hobbies are meeting my friends and fishing. At home I like to cook with my father. On holidays I like to travel with my parents because I like to learn something about new cultures. I would describe myself as candid, sociable and cooperative.
Now I want to explain why I like to visit a high school in the USA. A few years ago my dad made me aware of the possibility of a foreign school year. After I talked to my cousin, who spend a year in the USA and visited a high school and I also talked to other persons who lived or spend time in the USA I was convinced that I wanted to visit the USA too. The following reasons explain why I want to visit the USA. I hope and promise me of my visit to the USA that I feel the American way of life and learn something about the American culture and history. Moreover I want to improve my language skills. But I also hope to found new friends and meet new people.
All in all I want to say thank you for your interest and I hope that I have found the interest of a family with which I will have a good time.
