First of all, I would like to thank you for taking your time reading my letter. I will take this letter as a chance to introduce myself to you and share information on my family and hobbies as well as thoughts on my stay abroad with you.
My name is Michelle and I’m currently 16 years old. I am living with my family in- for me the most beautiful city of Germany. It has over 500,000 inhabitants and is a historic city with many beautiful sights.
I am attending the 10th grade of the German “Gymnasium”, which is the highest of three levels of German Schools. Graduating from this school after 12 years I will receive my “university-entrance-diploma”. After my graduation from High school I’d like study something having to do with business management and marketing, because I like to work with people and I would like to take responsibility in a larger company.
In my free time my most important hobby is dancing. I’ve been dancing for about five years in a club now and still love it.I would like to continue dancing or cheerleading at your place, but if it’s not possible, it wouldn’t be that bad, because I’m open-minded about any other kind of sport, too.
On a typical weekend I like to sleep a bit longer than in the week. After breakfast I prepare the lunch for my family. After that I meet my friends, sometimes we just talk, sometimes we go to the swimming pool or just relax at home. In Winter I also frequently go ice-skating. On Sunday I usually do my homework for the next week and relax at home or sometimes go on a trip with my family.
Apart from keeping my room clean I have no fixed responsibilities or chores at home, but I often go shopping in the supermarket, vacuum our flat or empty the dishwasher, if my mother asks me to do that.
The relationship between my parents and me is very good, so they help me solving problems as much as they can. Family is an important part of my life.
The reason why I would like to spend a year in the US is quite simple for me to answer. Since I was a little girl it was my big “American dream” to fly to the US and spend my time there. I would like to improve my English and learn to speak fluently.
I think that living in the US will be a unique experience for me and that it will have a big influence on my life and personality. I hope that I am going to have a nice time there and that my “American dream” will become reality.
