Dear Host Family,
Hallo,Ich heiße Boyce. Ich bin 15 Jahre alt. I come from Taiwan. Taiwan is a small country which is surrounded by sea. It is very different from Germany. Taiwan is hot every season, including winter.
There are four members in my family, my dad, my mom, my brother and me. We have a pet dog named Lily. She is a nice pet. My family is close; we often do many activities together. We also have disagreements sometimes, but every fight makes us tighter. We always know what is the point to improve and makes our family better. I really like my family.
I love sports very much because I can feel I‘m really living when I sport. When I was a junior high student, I joined the school's swimming team and won plenty of medals. I like swimming. It's always a goodmemory for me. Now, I am a part of the baseball team, and I am an outfielder and a pitcher. I can really hit, and I'm good at throwing the curveball. I also like play basketball, play badminton, play soccer, and play table tennis. I watch NBA, too. I likeOKC Thunder. My favorite player is Russell Westbrook. I hope I can join a basketball team in Germany although I know soccer is most popular there. I want to try a lot of new things and not to regret wasting this year so I will focus on new experiences.
I also like to play bridge. I didn't know how it is going on in the beginning, but after playing several times, I realized and enjoyed the feeling of intriguing against each other. I have to try to figure out which card to call next time and communicate with the partner. At first, I'll blame my partner because of some small mistakes. Because of the behavior, I've been lectured by my teacher. He said the bridge is not an exercise for only one; everyone will make mistake; no one will want to play bridge with the person if he blames others because of a small mistake. It changed my thoughts a lot and changed a lot. I was a swim player before, I’ll win or lose depending on my display and representation. It's different to Bridge. It helps my life a lot. That's whyI like the bridge.
I like western culture. Ich mag Deutschland sehr. Deutschland hat die Weltmeisterschaft gewonnen, Ich bin auch sehr glücklich. I especially like Munich's soccer team. Ich hoffe, dass Deutsch auch in diesem Jahr die Weltmeisterschaft gewinnen kann.
When I was twelve, I watched the Germany soccer team competed in the World Cup. They won the championship. Then, I started to become familiar with that country. I grew curious, so I searched for Germany on the internet. After that, I recognized that German products are very famous because they work hard to make it high quality and durable. Because of their hard work and advanced industrial technology, I made up my mind that I wanted to go to Germany. I wanted to learn German to learnfrom them. I went to classes every week to learn German. I have taken a trip to Germany. I learned a lot from this trip, including cultures, environment, and how they live their lives. In order to study in Germany, I know that I have to do a lot of work to get into the program. I will learn more, including writing and speaking German. I will also learn how to take care of myself such as cooking my meal. Now, I can prepare some simple meals like curry, fried meat, and vegetables.
I hope I can be a successful exchange student. I am nervous about the following 10 months because I have never been abroad by myself before. Thanks to my parents and my friend always encouraged me. I will pluck up my courage to face all the challenges.You may feel I'm shy at first, but when we are familiar with each other, you will find I am humorous. I usually wash dishes and wash clothes at home. Sometimes I would clean the floor. I am willing to do the household at my host family. I wish I can integrate into the German’s life.
And last, nice to meet you. Ich weiß es zu schätzen, dass du mich akzeptierst.
