Student Letters – Meet Harry!
Dear host family,
Nice to meet you!
My name is Harry. Now I am studying in a Foreign Language School. I took part in a summer camp when I was in Grade 7. The summer camp was in America. So I am very interested in American life from then on. That’s also the reason why I want to study abroad.
In school, I like P.E. best. So I like sports very much, for I think it can make me healthier. I like playing badminton, basketball and volleyball. Once I won the first prize in a competition of badminton. Also I won the second prize in a competition of basketball. I am also good at running and long jump. And I made a contribution to the sports meet in school. I am very happy with that because not only sports can make me healthier, but also I can make a contribution to school, family and community. If possible, I will continue to doing some sports in America. And I like to take part in all kinds of activities.
My personality is very outgoing. I like to make friends very much. I enjoy communicating with others. I always bring the hap p investor others, so they all like me. In school, my scores are always good. But I am hard-working all the time to make myself better. I become more hard-working when I decided to go to America to study. I also like to play computer games in my free time, which can make me happy and relaxed.
There are four people in my family. My father, my mother, my sister And me. Both of my parents are businessmen. My sister is very confident. All of us take good care of her because she is not enough mature. My parents are very open-minded. They absolutely support me to study abroad. They think it’s a good opportunity for me to improve myself well.
We family all like sports. We often watch TV together after meal and have a chat. Maybe we also like to go for a walk in the park around our house. Now and then we watch a movie at weekends. We like traveling. I have been to many places in China, like Shanghai, Beijing, etc. But I only traveled abroad in America. My family is very lovely. I love them so much. I know that the life in America will be full of challenges, including the food, the different life style, the way of thinking, etc. But I don’t think anything will be the problem. Because I am very optimistic. If I come across some difficulties, I won’t choose to ask my original parents for help immediately. I will try to solve them by myself first, which can make myself great progress, I think. If it’s a very big trouble, maybe I will ask my parents and teachers for help.
In America, I will study hard to get good scores to enter a good university in the future. Meanwhile, my parents will be also very happy with my good performance. This is a new stage for me to show myself. And I will cherish this chance to behave well. Although I am a little bit nervous about the new life in America, I Think that’s normal. I can feel a different life style through this chance. And that’s also my goal. Meanwhile, I can know more about American culture and share Chinese culture with you all.
In your family, I will be responsible and I’m excited about the family. Hope you will accept me.
