I really enjoy watching basketball matches on TV, my favorite team is the LA Lakers, and my favorite player is Lebron James. I like playing soccer as well with my friends after school. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, playing play station and watching basketball and soccer matches. I am a very sociable person, I eat just about anything except less favorites like fish and cooked vegetables. I help out around the house by vacuuming, making the beds, preparing the table and taking the dogs walking. I go to an Evangelic church every Sunday with my family, but here our churches are small, not as big as American churches. Thank you so much in advance if you decide to host me and allow me this experience!

Letter to my Host Family

Hello My American host family, I’m Chiara, I live in a small town in the country side with my parents, my dog, Kicca and my cats Mia and Tino. One of my biggest passions is electronics and video games, and my father was the one who introduce me to electronics at a really young age. When I was 4 or 5 years old I used to spend every day at my dad’s electronics store that he owned. I’m definitely a big animal lover too: I’ve had all sorts of pets as a kid, from fishes to birds and even chickens! Another hobby of mine is listening to music: the genres that I listen to the most are retro style music, indie rock and alternative. I attend an art school with a specialization in interior design. Outside of school, I have worked at my local grocery store. It has been a good experience and I have met new friends. I can’t thank you enough for hosting me and I’m really looking forward to teaching you how to cook traditional Italian food and talk about our cultural differences!

Letter to my Host Family

Alessia recently moved into an apartment in town with her mom and kitten. Before that, she lived in a large farmhouse with her Grandparents, Mom, Aunt and 2 German Shepherds! Her Grandfather is a farmer and her Mom and Aunt work for the family business. Alessia describes herself as generous, curious and as someone who likes to try new things. "I am a very sunny person." Alessia loves seeing new places and studying languages. She chose United States as her exchange year because of its beautiful landscape and prestigious high schools. But also, Alessia is determined to improve her English. Alessia has tried activities such as swimming and horseback riding, but dance is something she has done for 7 years, and even though she stopped dancing to try new things, she would like to begin again soon. Alessia spends winter break skiing, but prefers the seaside because she finds the sea to be calming. Alessia helps around the house with chores and, of course, is looking forward to cooking some Italian dishes and sharing memorable moments together with her American host family!

Letter to my Host Family

I am from a very typical Italian family! I have relatives from the North and the South of Italy due to my grandparent’s heritage. I have two dogs, a Golden Retriever and Border Collie Mix. My interests include watersports, video games and motorbikes. I am addicted to music! I Love listening to Italian and sometimes American rap which is my favorite. I like Salmo, Nitro and artists like Travis Scott, Drake and Kanye West. I played the drums for 10 years but because of Covid I had to stop, it is a great passion of mine. When I was 12 years old, I asked my dad for a PC, he said why don’t I build my own, so we did! It took 6 months, but I learned a lot on assembling and building. I am also passionate about Motorsports, like Formula 1. My friends say I am a very friendly person who likes to help others, I am always in a good mood, it is very difficult to get me angry. I hope to be your host student and I look forward to meeting you!
