Basketball club, drawing, guitar, I love animals, cooking - DDLetter to my Host Family
Hello from Spain! I am 16 years old and live in a medium-sized town. I live with my parents and my two younger brothers. Growing up, I heard about student exchange through my father who was an exchange student and had an amazing experience. I am inspired by him! My favorite subjects are industrial technology because we get to work with computers and workshops to build, design and study a lot of different things such as machines and electric circuits. My other favorite class is physical education because I love sports, especially basketball. In fact, I play on Madrid’s federation local team and have been playing for 8 years. I also enjoy other hobbies such as ; cooking, playing the guitar and drawing. I also love animals. At home we don’t have any pets apart from my fish, I have an aquarium in my room with several different species which I love to watch. I have also had a gecko as a pet before and I like dogs and cats. Another interesting hobby is that I enjoy cars and races and I would love to someday go to a car show someday. I often visit my grandparents in the South of Spain and go scuba diving while visiting them. In the past, I have participated in a school work program as a volunteer and while at home work on tidying up my room, the kitchen and bathroom. I look forward to meeting you and sharing this amazing experience together!

I’m really interested about learning new languages and new cultures and traditions. I have a lot of hobbies, starting form sports, to theatre and history. Let me explain you: I like swimming and some people told me that I should start competitive swimming, but due to costs too much elevated the swimming pool of my town has currently closed and the one where I would be able to do competitive swimming is too much far away. I also really like skiing, that’s one of my favorite sports. I am practicing to become better and better at it. I really like history; I find history an important thing humanity should remember and for this reason the Ancient Romans used to say “Historia magistra vitae” (history is teacher of life). A couple of friends of mine and I are doing a project with the school that is essentially a drama class; since the 11th grade teachers always told me I should take acting class, but that’s the 1st year I'm trying it and I'm really enjoying it. I really hope that you liked my letter and I hope we‘ll can see as soon as possible.
