Dear host family,
My name is Chloé, I am 17 years old. I live near the city of Nantes which is the largest city of the north-west of France. I live in a house located in a very quiet residential area. We are located about 45 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean which gives us the opportunity to go there regularly.
I have a brother who is 13 years old and a sister who is 8 years old. My father is 44 years old and is a Technical manager. He works for the Passenger ships like RCCL and MSC. My mother is also 44 years old. She works in the automobile industry, she is a prototype coordinator. I also have two pets, a dog called and a rabbit.
I am in 11th grade with the chemical physics, mathematics and AMC options. AMC is contemporary world English at the high school.
I play handball since 7 years. Twice a week I go to my handball training and at the weekend I have a match. We play at regional level and we plan to go to a tournament in Denmark which last year was canceled because of the Covid-19. I also practiced swimming during 7 years including 1 year in competition level.
Sometimes the week-end with my friends we go to Nantes by bus and tram and we do shopping. I also like baking cakes, going to the beach with my family. We also really like amusement parks. Some winters we go to the mountains, I love skiing.
In everyday life, I’m rather shy with people I don’t know. But once in confidence I leave my reserve and am completely sociable.
I love discovering new things and sharing them. This is also why I would like to make this trip, because I could improve my English and discover a new culture.
Later I would like to become an architect. I will therefore be interested in your architecture, your interior decorations and your history.
I will be very happy to share my French culture with you. In particular some typical French dishes
Thank you for your attention to my letter. Hope to meet you soon.
