Letter to my Host Family

Melissa has two big passions; swimming and cats! Melissa used to have 5 cats in her family but unfortunately is down to 1 cat at present so a household with cats would be a wonderful thing. Even if Melissa only swims once a week, she loves it and considers it her ‘passion in life.’ she been swimming since she was four years old. Melissa lives with her mom, dad and brother and is very family orientated. She loves to spend time with her family as they travel to different places to explore, both locally and further afar. Melissa is an excellent student and one day she would like to be a physiotherapist and is hoping to also get a second degree in law, as that’s always been a dream for her.

Letter to my Host Family

I’m Julia and I’m 15. I love sports and I love traveling. I grew up speaking German and Danish at home and I learned English and French in school (but my English is a lot better than my French!). I had the opportunity to go to boarding school in Denmark like my brother but I would rather go to America and live with a family like yours. I really like traveling to visit my family in Denmark and England. Visiting England gives me a good opportunity to practice speaking English to my cousin there. In Germany, I play field hockey but I want to try new sports in America. I’m also looking forward to experiencing my first Thanksgiving! I like to bake and cook and I’d be happy to cook some German recipes for you. I’m excited about becoming a part of my new host family!
