First of all I want to thank you for reading my letter and I hope that you´ll get the right impression of me.
My name is Emma-Louise, my friends call me Emma and I live with my mum, my dad and my little brothers in a house in a city in the Southwest of Germany.
At my school, I have subjects like german, history, maths, biology, english and others. I am not good at maths, but there are some other subjects I am interested in, like biology. My Favorites are art and music. So I am in the school choir.
I love dancing and singing, so music is every time by my side. It makes me happy. Actually I have a crazy musical taste, so I hear music from the 50s over to the 80s and also charts from this year. Not to forget, I also like Latin American music.
As you can see from my favorite subject, I am a very creative person. So I tinker, draw and also sew. And the other type of being creative is baking. I bake cakes and also sometimes motif pies. Maybe someday we can bake together a typical German cake or we can sew a patchwork blanket. And sometimes I watch American bake shows. Before I forget it, I love movies, no matter which genre it is
I do twice a week sports. My favorite is swimming, but no competitive one. I do rescue swimming and that is a lot of fun. My second favorite is zumba, it’s a mix of aerobic and dancing, so there you dance to Latin American music. Actually it’s cooler than it sounds.
So now my personality: I have a great sense of humor. I love to laugh and make others laugh. Like I said I am a creative, positive and sometimes a dreamy person. Because I live in a house with four other people it’s never boring and sometimes there is a little chaos. So I can deal with this. I have to admit that I sleep long at the weekend, but in return I love to try exciting new stuff, maybe with you.
Why do I want to live 10 months in the USA? I want to learn about the culture, meet new people there and want to live this normal American everyday life. Also I think the High Schools there so exciting, when you compare them to the German School system. Also I can show you some things of my culture, like the german way of life, the food and the language.
I think and hope we have a great and exciting time and a lot of fun together.
