Dear host family,
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. This letter is to introduce myself. My name is Levin, a 15 year old boy from a wonderful village in Germany. It is surrounded by vineyards. I will be 16 years old in summer 2023.
My family includes my parents, my three elder sisters one studying medicine / becoming a medical doctor, one a designer for visual marketing, and one a high school student), and is completed by our two rabbits Primrose and Paul. I can always rely on my family.
In my free time, I meet with my friends, go running, play video games, or help a family friend at her winery. In our family, we all enjoy traveling and discovering the world. And we share the love for skiing, snorkeling and trying and cooking international food – my favorite dish is marinated chicken with potatoes and vegetables.
Growing up, I saw my siblings spending a high school year overseas: one was in Fort Worth, Texas, one was in Cape Town, South Africa, and the last is soon coming back from Penticton, Canada. I always knew I wanted to make this experience, too. After family vacations to the U.S. it was obvious to me that I wanted to choose your wonderful country for my High School year.
Characterizing myself I’d describe me as a funny and relaxed boy. Friends and family acknowledge my helpfulness as I like to be a good helper in the house and in the garden. And also at my school we learn to take responsibility e.g. by independently working on a farm.
Thank you very much for spending your time to read my letter. I very much look forward to meeting you in person,
