Hallo, ich werde dieses Jahr für ein Schuljahr in die USA gehen und muss nun einen Brief an eine unbekannte Gastfamilie schreiben, welcher mindestens 500 Wörter haben muss. Ist der folgende Brief vom Inhalt her in Ordnung und habt ihr ein paar Vorschläge wie ich aus diesem Brief mehr Wörter rausholen kann? :D
Dear Host Family,
First of all I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to spend a year in the USA with you and to be a part of your family.
In the following, i want to tell you something about my family, friends, me and why I want to spend a year abroad in the USA.
My name is Simon and i'm 16 years old. My parents are divorced so during the week i live with my mother, my brother, my sister and our dog in a house with a garden in a small town. At the weekend and at the holidays, my brother and me are with my dad who lives only a few minutes away.
My brother and me often play community games with my sister and with my father i often go swimming or jogging.
I go to the Gymnasium in the 10th class. All my friends are in my class and so we see each other very often. At the weekend we often go to the cinema or just meet to do for example sport.
I want to go to the USA, to make a new experience and to learn something about the american culture and the life in high school. I want to meet new friends and of course i hope that i can improve my english.
I'm really interested in american sports like football and basketball, but also in soccer.
Thank you very much for having taken the time to read my letter. I am looking forward to meeting you at your home.
