Dear host family:

My name is Gonzalo and I am 15 years old. In this letter I am going to present myself.

First of all I want to talk about my family. We are 5, my father, my mother and my little sister. She is 12 years old so she began high school. We usually have fun together. And the last one is my dog, he is 8 years old and he is a really good dog.

My father works in an educative foundation and my mother is a lawyer

The family of my father is really big, he has nine brothers and we are around 14 cousins that in Christmas or in someone’s birthday we meet all in a house to eat, it is very fun, is one of the things that most I miss since the COVID 19.

Now I am going to tell you my different hobbies. For example playing video games on the computer or on the ps4. I enjoy this not only because the video games are fun, but also because I can talk with my friends.

Here in Spain we have another house on the mountain, we usually go on the weekends. So I like everything related to nature, like hiking or riding a bike through the mountains, although in Spain I do not use to ride bike. Another activity that I love related to nature is skiing, it is my favorite sport because I can be in the mountains and also I enjoy sliding down the slope. It is very enjoyable.

Another sport that I like to play is soccer. Also I like to learn about other sports and watch them. I support Real Madrid and I watch almost all of the matches of Real Madrid. And the last sport that I like to watch and play is tennis. I played tennis for six years but I did not play any competitive matches. My favorite tennis player is Rafa Nadal.

The last thing I like is hanging out with my friends. We hang out every week to go to someone’s house, be in the street walking or sometimes go to play soccer or paddle together. Then we usually have dinner in a fast food restaurant.

Finally I am going to tell you about why I want to go to the USA. I have been in the USA visiting New York and Boston, it was the best trip I ever had. So I want to go because I like to learn about the different cultures, know how you live and because I like your educational system since it is really different from the one we have in Spain. The last reason is obviously to learn English.

I hope to see you soon!
