My name is Hugo. I live with my parents in a village 14 kilometres from the center of a city.
First of all, I’d like to say big thanks for letting me be part of your family. I really appreciate it and I believe it’ll be a wonderful experience.
Sincerely I think that my first month in the USA won’t be easy, all the things will be new and I will have to adapt myself to everything. It will be a lot of amazing moments, but also, it will be some problems. I think I will deal with all the problems okay. My big fear now, picturing myself in the USA, is the first week of class, when I won’t know anyone, but I will go through it without making a deal of it.
I do not have any brothers or sisters. Also, I don’t have pets but I would like to have one because I love animals, mostly dogs, but there are dog breeds that scare me, and I wouldn’t live comfortably with those at home: Pit Bull, Rottweiler, American Stafford, Doberman, Argentine Dogo…and all the breeds considered dangerous. However I like calm dogs, like golden retriever, Irish setter… and many more 🙂
I live in a flat in a building. It’s a ground floor with a little garden, in a residential complex with a swimming pool and green areas, trees and places to play sports.
At home I have different tasks like washing the dishes after the dinner and breakfast, and cleaning up my room.
My favourite types of food are the Japanese and Italian, and my favourite breakfast and afternoon snack are the pancakes with chocolate!
I enjoy travelling and doing activities with my parents. Sometimes, my parents and I like going to walk around a forest (not far from our home). I think they are always looking after me, but probably it is normal, because they appreciate me too much.
My school is not too far from my house and sometimes, I go walking with my friends. My favourite subjects are mathematics and chemistry, and the subject that I don’t enjoy so much is Spanish language. I have the image of the USA high schools as they are in the movies, so cool!
I am a good student, with great marks, studying in other language (English) won’t be easy but I think that with a little bit of effort I will make it!
I like doing different sports, in winter I usually go skiing and in summer I usually do surf, but apart from this sports I like playing volleyball, tennis, soccer… I like all the sports. Soccer is probably my favourite one, I have been playing and training soccer since I was 7 years old, but this year I am not practising it.
I am so excited about going to the USA, I think is going to be an unforgettable experience.
I have also 3 female cousins, I love they so much, are like my sisters. When we see one to each other, we like to spent our time playing games and talking.
Here, where I live, I have many friends of my age, some are from my high school and other are form other high schools of the village, we hang out every week; we go to the cinema, to the city, we talk about our things like exams and etc… I think they will miss me and when I will tell they about my fantastic experience abroad.
I like travelling around the world and from I was a little kid I travelled to some countries like: Italy, France, Germany, Tunisia, England, Portugal…
I am writing this letter in November 2017 because we have to plan a lot of things in advance about my trip to the USA. Probably you had seen me in some photos with braces (orthodontics), but this week, my dentist will take it me off, and I am so happy!
I hope to make the most of this experience and to learn many things from it: to get to know how the United States are, its people, culture and the lifestyle there. I am also looking forward to showing you how we are in my country, Spain, and tell you about our customs, culture and way of living.
I’d like to say big thanks for letting me be part of this experience and for having me with you for a year. I believe it will be an unforgettable experience and the beginning of a relation for life!
