My name is Pedro.
First of all I would like to thank you for the interest shown by me. I consider myself an open person, a bit shy at first, but I don’t have any problem to interact with other people. I have a lot of friends in my neighborhood, at school, at my soccer team. I like a lot to play sports. I don’t practice them much but I play soccer on my town team.
We are a united family. At home I live with my parents, my two younger brothers and our two pets, a dog and a guinea pig. My house is in a town on the outskirts of my city. We have a little garden around my house and I have my own bedroom.
My father is the IT manager in an investigation center. I have visited his work center and do some very interesting and cool things. My mother is an accountant but now she does not work and she is at home taking care of the family. My brothers are very funny and although sometimes I fight with them, I love them very much. We all go to the same school and have lunch at home. They also like sports very much and practice soccer like me. My little brother is on the school team, and my other brother in the town club like me.
This year I am studying a difficult course comparing to the previous courses, but I don’t think it’s going to be a bad course for me. My favorite subject is geology and biology. The only thing that I don’t like from my school is that I have to wear uniform. I haven’t still decided what I am going to study in the future.
In my free time I meet my friends. We use to play soccer or videogames. We go to the cinema and to our town fair.
My diary routine is: I wake up at 8:00, I tidy up, I have breakfast, I dress up and I go to school. I have lunch at home. Some days, after school, I have training. When I get home I do my homework or I study, I have dinner and I see TV until I go to bed. On weekends I have a soccer match from my league, I do my homework, I study and then I meet my friends.
I am excited to go to USA not only to improve my English knowledge, but also to visit the country and its culture. Also, I would like to make new friends, have new experiences and visit new places. It’s not the first time that I have travelled abroad. I went to an England summer camp for a month two years ago and it was a great experience because I knew a new culture, I practiced English and I visited new places. I have also been with my family on Canterbury two summers, on a summer camp, when I was younger. While my brothers and I went to the camp my parents visited the town and surroundings.
I help with the housework; throwing the rubbish, taking the dog out and, on weekends and summer, I make my bed and clean my bedroom. In my house we often eat Spanish food, although we like to change and sometimes we eat food from other cultures. My mother is the one who cooks at home because my father doesn’t have so much experience. I don’t have so much experience cooking but I know basic things, I can cook something if my fathers are not at home or if it’s necessary.
In summer holidays we usually go to a house that my grandparents have in beach but we also stay a lot of time at home and what I do is to go the swimming pool or to play in my neighborhood’s facilities with my friends. This summer I have been to Almeria and to Benidorm because I have participated in two soccer tournaments. I have enjoyed it a lot although we haven’t won anyone.
We spend Christmas with family. Both my maternal grandparents and the paternal do not live very far from us and we see each other very often, especially on those dates. I spend one part of Christmas with my grandmother and the other with my grandparents.
I really want to have this great experience.
Finally, I want to thank you for welcoming me into your home and for offering me your hospitality. I really want to meet you. See you soon.
