My name is Hung and I would like to describe myself with this letter. I am a incoming junior in high school in a city in Vietnam. At first, I might be a quiet person, but then I can get along well with people. I love playing sport, specially soccer so that I joined soccer team in my high school. As a member of the soccer team, I have learned lots of techniques and skills from the older players. I have also learned the power of coming together as a team.
It was always a great dream to live and work in a foreign country and I am really excited that it will become reality soon. I would like to go to the United States because I think it is a wonderful country. I am delighted to learn that I have the opportunity to spend one next year in the United States. After growing up in Vietnam, I do want to try something new, learning different cultures and lifestyles. Only knowing America from television and newspaper, I really appreciate the chance to experience this country as an exchange student. I will cherish the valuable time with you and introduce you to Vietnamese culture as well.
My mother and father are very strict with me. Therefore, I have grown up with good manners and a strong personality. Even though I have a lot of homework and studying now, I still make time to study my English. I have not paid too much attention to learning and practicing English before. However, since I recognized a lot of problems I will have in the United States such as communicating with you, with teachers and friends at school, I am studying it really hard now. In addition, I have learned to cook several simple but delicious Vietnamese foods in case you would like to have a taste.
This is a good chance for me to learn English culture and valuable for me to make friends with you and to become a member of your family. If I have something wrong or cause misunderstanding in the future between us that may upset you, I hope you could tell me directly. And I will try my best to make it right. I hope, with communication and understanding, we can have a great time together.
