Brief an die Zukünftige Gastfamilie - Gut so?
Dear host family. First of all I want to thank you very much for giving me the chance to life in the US for ten months and that I can be a part of your family. My name is xxx but everyone just calls me xxx. I live with my mum xxx, my dad xxx and my brother xxx in a little city called xxx in the middle of Germany. We live here in a little house with a very nice garden. My brother is three years older than me and starts to study business management in summer. We have a really good relationship. He already has his drivers license so we often just drive around with his car, listen to music, laughing and singing loud. My mum is xx years old and works xxxxxxx. I often go shopping with her and can tell her everything. My dad is xx years old and xxxxxxxx. I spend much time with my family. We love to do sports or to travel. We often go on trips to other cities or to other countries. Two years ago we were on vacation in Florida. I enjoyed it very much. Since then I would like to go to America again, would like to live there and would like to go to school there.
My school is a Gymnasium and I go there every day by foot. That’s why I wake up every single day at 6 a.m. but I am a morning person so I don’t have problems with that. My favorite subjects in school are English, Math and of course Sports. I also learn Spanish which I enjoy too, even if it’s sometimes very hard. Twice a week I go to a school for disabled children and play with them in my free time. The kids love me and I love them. When I am older I would like to be a teacher for kids like these. I also help younger children from my school in especially math. In my free time I often meet my friends or do sports. I used to do gymnastics for eleven years and I am quite good at it. Now I visit the gym twice to four times a week. If there is enough snow in winter I go skiing almost every weekend. In summer I go swimming like every single day with my friends. When I was younger I used to be in the swimming club and I was really good for my age. I also like cycling, skating and ice-skating. But I also love to go shopping or to the cinema like every normal teenager I guess. I would like to spend one year with you because I want to experience by myself how it is to live in another country, go to a high school and speaking another language. Thank you very much for letting my dream come true! I really look forward to meet you See you soon! Love, xxx
Dein Brief ist sehr gut beschrieben und dein Englisch klingt fast schon perfekt. Ist dein Englisch wirklich schon auf einem so hohen niveau? Oder hat dir jemand geholfen? (Die Familie erwartet jetzt vlt das dein Englisch schon sehr gut ist, also schreib ihn unbedingt selber!) Ich finde du darfst dich ruhig auch etwas kürzer fassen, da du ihnen bestimmt auch noch etwas persöhnlich erzählen möchtest bei deiner Ankunft. Ich denke nicht das es sie jetzt schon interessiert um welche Zeit du früher aufgestanden bist :) sonst sehr gut ich hoffe ich konnte dir helfen und nicht nervös sein das kommt schon gut! Du wirst bestimmt die beste Zeit deines Lebens haben....
Ja den habe ich selbst geschrieben :D Danke!
Der ist so echt gut, du kannst aber, sofern du noch fragen hast, diese natürlich einbauen. Falls nicht kannst du in ruhigen Gewissens so abschicken.
Habe es jetzt nur schnell überflogen, Gymnasium ist in den USA ein Fitnessstudio, nimm Highschool oder etwas anderes passenderes.
oder schreib "My school is a so-called Gymnasium which is the German equivalent to a highschool"
Vom Gefühl her würde ich sagen
My brother will start studying - nicht starts to
and I can ask her anything - mit I
Since then, I wanted to do this and wanted to do that ... oder I dreamed of... - would like in der Vergangenheitsform klingt nicht so toll
Sonst: Sehr gut, sehr sympatisch & viel Spaß dir ;)
Vielen Dank für die Tipps! ;)
nicht eher: my brother is going to start studying...?
