Hello, my name is Jose and first of all I would like to thank you for giving me this great opportunity and for your hospitality.
I am tall and I have blond hair. I think I am cheerful, friendly, kind, respectful, orderly and sportsman. I live in a sunny city in Spain. Here everyone is nice.
My family is composed by my sister, my brother, and my parents. My younger sister likes sailing. My older brother works as a professional skipper in a touristic ship. My mother is employed as scriptwriter at a cooking television program and my father as news cameraman, both at the public channel.
My school is located in the centre of the city so we can go to many museums and other places of interest. There we studied what for you would be eleventh grade and twelfth grade, in my case eleventh. I am studying the branch of technology because I would like to study naval architecture or something related to renewable energies. The subjects that I like the most are technical drawing, technology and physics.
My close friends are three. I know one of them since I was five years old and I met the others just three years ago but we have connected very well. We go to the same school and for this reason, I see them every day. The weekends, we go to dinner or to someone’s house to play video games, watch movies or do a party. They are really good friends and I am proud to have them.
My week starts on Mondays at seven o’clock. Firstly, I dress up and I go to breakfast. I usually drink a big glass of natural fruit smoothie. After that, I clean my dishes and my friend’s father picks me up at half past seven and we go to school. It starts at eight o’clock and finish at half past two on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays, and at three o’clock on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I have a break at eleven o’clock to half past eleven in which we can go out to the city centre. Then, I take the opportunity to have a snack. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, I go to conservatory of music. I play violin since I was nine years old. Currently, I am attending fourth of professional.
The weekends, I do my favourite sport: sailing. I play windsurf, Platu 25 cruising, 420 and now Laser class. It all began seven years ago, when I started windsurfing in a summer school in a town where I was on vacation at the time. There I met the monitor who taught me and told me that I worked in a club and that I went with him in the winter to sign up for sailing school. So that’s what I did and now the club is like my second home. I come here every weekend and whenever I can on vacation to navigate. Undoubtedly, what I like most is windsurfing and sailing, currently in the Laser class. I love it.
I’d like to study next grade in the USA in order to learn your culture, traditions, way of life and, of course, your language. I’m able to show you Spanish customs, even some phrases and words. I want to live an experience like this because I know that it will change the way I live and because it will help me mature and grow as a person.
The first time I went on a trip to study English, I went to Dublin and spent two weeks in a host family. At the beginning it was complicated but I got used to it. I also spent a month in New York last summer in a boarding school and it was an incredible experience that I will never forget. I made many friends of different nationalities, with whom I still talk, and I had a great time. In both trips I went with my sister.
Normally, I help in the housework. We share the work. For example, my sister sets the table and I pick it up. I always try to help, although I’m not at home because I spend a lot of time at school and in the conservatory.
Depending on the day and the time we can meet in lunch time together, but it is not usual. When we usually eat together is at dinner time. My mother is the one who always cooks and always does it with a lot of love, so she always makes spectacular meals. I also like to cook and make my own meals.
Christmas we usually spend with the family. These dates are the best meeting times and we have a great time. During the rest of the year, with all the things we have to do each one, we do not usually see each other so much, but even so, we love each other very much.
Thank you again for hosting me, I really appreciate it. I hope to meet you this year. I am really happy to share with you a part of my life, exchanging experiences, showing you my country culture and enjoy your way of life, so…See you soon!
