Letter to my Host Family

Belen is a bundle of activity! She loves to dance (and it doesn't even matter which style - ballet, jazz, contemporary, urban, or funk) and play clarinet, piano, and guitar (she studies at a music conservatory). Mom is a teacher at a primary school and Belen may want to follow in her footsteps one day. She would probably teach dance or music or something related to sciences like physics or biology. Belen may seem shy at first, but once she gets to know new friends, she is talkative and loves to hang out having fun. She is excited to meet her new host family and friends in America.

Her greatest dedication is to her tennis practice six hours a week. Her city is near the beach and near the mountains, so she also loves to ski and windsurf. Although she has a small family, she is used to visiting her grandparents and being surrounded by lots of cousins who are visiting, too. Sometimes, they just do a film day all day with popcorn or a special family dinner. She is so grateful for her future host family already and can't wait to me you.
