Hello, my name is Carlos. I believe I am a enthusiastic person and I like to meet new people, places, cultures. Also, I am responsable and mature.
I am Spanish, from a region in the south of the country, where the days are very sunny almost all year.
I live next to the beach and I can enjoy it all year: to walk, to do sport, to swim. We also have the mountain near and we can go skiing in Winter.
In Spain the food is very varied, although I also like to try food from other countries. I would like my host family to come to visit my country, it has many places and cities to visit.
My father is a merchant seaman. My mother is an emergency nurse. They are divorced but they have a very good relationship.
I also have an older brother, who is studying computer science at a US university.
My relationship with my parents and my brother is great. We like to travel and spend time together.
We also have a dog. I’m afraid of dogs, but we decided to have a pet. Currently, I’m less afraid of dogs, but I’m still afraid of dogs I do not know.
My school is a small school very close to my house, and at school we all know each other. Many of my friends are my classmates.
My favorite subjects are History, Art, Geography and Technology. I’m still not sure what I want to study at the university, maybe pilot or digital animation engineering.
During the week I go to school in the mornings and at lunchtime I am already at home to eat with my family. In the afternoons I study and two days a week I go to English classes.
On weekends , I meet my friends to go to the cinema, ride a bike, go to the skate park with the scooter …. In summer we go to the beach a lot. When it’s cold I like to be at home playing video games, on many occasions also with my friends. Also these days I watch some TV series and listen to music.
I would like to study in the USA to improve my English and to know its culture, new places and new people. I really like your lifestyle and country, since it is different from mine. I have been several times and I liked it a lot.
I travelled to many different places with my parents and my brother. I have been with them in France, Portugal, England, Germany, Italy and in USA.
On one occasion I was a month with a host family in Ireland. And in several summer camps both in Ireland and in England. All these trips have been on vacation (winter, summer, Easter)
At home we all collaborate, I clean my room (clean it, make the bed) and I help at meal times. I am very neat and clean.
At home we always eat as a family, normally my mother cooks, but if she works, I can cook different things that are not very complicated. We usually like to eat at home and sometimes we go out to restaurants.
At Christmas I usually go with my mother and my brother, who comes to visit from USA, to visit my grandparents in a city in the north of the country. There I gather with the whole family and celebrate the Christmas festivities. I’m also going to see them in summer.
When I’m with my father we travel and the most important days of Christmas are celebrated with his family that lives in my city.
I am very grateful to the family that will welcome me for their great generosity and I hope it will be a great experience for everyone.
