Thibaud will be 15 on his arrival in the US. He has an elder brother in med school, a younger brother in the same school as Thibaud, his father is a charted surveyor and his mom an architect. He's in a sports club and loves to climb, wind surf, and play soccer. He's played drums since for 8 years. He cooks at home and has done an internship at a bakery-maybe he'll bake your family some deserts. He'd like to be a professional chef or resort-hotel manager. This summer he'll go to Spain for a short exchange and then that student will return with him to France to complete the exchange. "I help set our table, help cook, cut the grass and pick up leaves." Favorite classes are history and sport. He plays soccer in a club and hopes to play in the US and wants to play drums in his new High school band. He loves his 3-10 year old cousins and baby sits them; he is not averse to having younger children in his family or a sibling in high school with him.

I'm Janier from Spain. My parents get along even though separated. My brother is in college and competes internationally in skating. Our entire family go with him to support him and to be tourists. We love sport and practice paddle tennis, tennis, cycling, or skating. I help my father in his orchard. I play on a hockey team; it's one of my passions. I'm captain of the team, and played for 5 years. Our family go to dinner, the cinema and play tennis. I like skiing, reading, listening to music, movies and Rubik's cube. I have been to Paris. Last year I went on a school trip to Dublin; it was fun. Last summer I traveled to London with mum and stayed in Cambridge. I hope to study Physics, Chemistry or engineering. I'm undecided as I love science and computing. Living 10 months in the US is a great opportunity for me to learn about another culture. I think I will mature to become a different and better person from this gift that you are providing to me. I can share with you Spanish language, culture and food. By the way, I eat almost anything. I will follow the rules you set for me, will be grateful if you are my host family, and feel sure that we will enjoy ourselves. Janier made all "A"s, has, excellent health, and had a very high English score. Seems as though he will meld well with his new host and second family.

I'm Antoine, I'm 17 years old, and I live with my family in the north east of France. I'm very close with my little sister, she's very joyful and I take care of her as much as possible. I'm a bit shy at times, yet friendly and open-minded. I have a great relationship with my family and friends. We have a tabby cat and I like cats better than dogs because they are more independent. I currently study economy and political science and would like to continue when I get back to France and my English has improved from this exchange. I have been a "Scout of France" since I was six and most of my friends are also scouts. We enjoy making our own fixie bicycles. I also have played tennis since I was six years old. I've never been to the US and I'm looking forward to meeting you and sharing my life with your family.

Hip hop and jazz dancing, watch movies, politics - CS*Letter to my Host Family
My name is Magnus and I am 15 years old. I come from a small town in northeastern Denmark. I live with my father, mother, and brother. My oldest brother moved out a couple years ago but I still get to see him often. Let me tell you about a dream of mine that hasn't come true yet. I would some day like to experience what it is like to have younger siblings. Since I am the youngest I always begged my parents for a little brother or sister. I always felt like I would do well to take care of younger children and take the protector role over them. If you have younger children in your home I feel like I would enjoy them a lot! I also think you would enjoy me as a part of your family because I am not afraid to discuss problems quickly so they can be solved. I don't like having tension between me and my family and I will everything in my power to make sure there isn't any in yours.
