Self-Description:

I am a person who always tries to be happy and doing many things. I love being with friends making lots of plans and having fun I am very sporty and I especially like soccer. I'm going to train Monday, Wednesday and Friday and on Saturdays we play a league game. I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old. I also play tennis, go to class on Fridays and play tournaments to improve my ranking. I like play video games too. Since I was 6 years old I go to the Official Music School of Alcobendas and I play the piano. At school, I went to a Painting Academy, because I also like to draw. I draw when I am inspired and my parents call me “little Leonardo Da Vinci”. I like to learn things, I always ask why. My favorite subject is mathematics and in general I like all subjects, especially those that have numbers. Ah, and I would also like to say that I have been studying Chinese since I was 6 years old and I like to learn its writing. I am very sensitive and I like to meet people and places in my country and abroad. That's why, for me, going to the US for a course is an extraordinary experience and I'm really looking forward to it.

Teacher through my life also are surprised on how interested I’m and how I manage so easily something when I’m interested in it. This is because I considered my self very competitive as I always want to be the best when I do something, and my hole life I been wanting to do something to be remembered or to leave a mark in the world.

My greatest interest with respect to the exchange year is to learn to speak to people with less shame and in a more open way, I´m also very interested in learning the lenguage better and learning the culture and history of the USA. What I´m looking forward on the exchange year is to learn more about the country and to make me a better person. I think its a life-changing experience.

One of my hobbies is running and I usually do it at least 3 days a week. My house is near a small forest, so my running trails change every single time. I also practice paddle tennis, which is like regular tennis, but with walls encircling the court and we use different rackets too. I think it is not that popular in the US, but I can assure you that, once you get the rules, it's very entertaining. I also love golf, and I try to practice it whenever I can; and, in Summer I like to go sailing and, in Winter, skiing. Another hobby of mine is, as any teen, going out with my friends. During the weekends, I usually take a bus downtown, where I meet with them, and we normally have something to eat in a fast-food restaurant and take walks around the city. After that, I go straight home, as I like spending the evening with my family playing boardgames or just hanging out.

Dear host family, my name is Jaime, and I´m 15 years old , I was born in one city in Spain but after a few months my family moved to another city, where I currently live. We live in a small town 30 km from a large city, in a semi detached house comprising a small garden and a swimming pool. It is a really good place to live,near the mountains where we do some hiking every now and then. In summer, normal temperatures reach up to 35º C and in winter up to -5º C. I have two sisters, and we three are triplets, which has been much fun for us as we share similar hobbies and interests, even friends. I can say that we are a joined and affectionate family and I,m very proud of being part of it. It is a treasure in life. I am in 10 grade at Hi-school and obtain good marks, because I consider myself a diligent guy, albeit not hardworker. I enjoy either going out with my friends or staying at home with my family watching tv o playing videogames. I like very much travelling with my family. We have been to many places in Spain and also abroad . For example , we have been to Hungary, Poland, New York , Paris... and is really fun doing things all the five, I have awsome memories of those days together. In Madrid we often go to the cinema, to the theatre , shopping... There are so many things to do in a big city! I like skiing, fishing either in rivers or at the seacoast, motocrossing and videogaming. I also like to watch films, however, I don´t like reading books because I find it a bit boring. I'm king of an active guy rather than intellectual. As my mum is a very good cook I´ve learnt much of cooking watching her do fantastic cuisine dishes, It´s very amusing and give us very goog moments together. Finally I describe myself as a cheerful kid, active, well-balanced, composed, eager about things that really catch my attention.

Self-Description:

I am a very social and extrovert person. I love doing activities with my friends and get to know new people. Furthermore, I am open minded, curios and adventurous, I always want to learn something new and explore new things. My friends would discribe me as good-humored and funny, motivating and proactive so it`s never getting boring with me. My biggest passion is my sport; I dance and do acrobatics five times a week, because I enjoy moving to musik. What I really like about my sport is, that you do it as a team and you can rely on each other. Additionally I´m active as a trainer in gymnastics for younger kids on a voluntary base. I am also interested in sports like badminton, volley-ball, cheerleeding and figure skating but I don`t practise any of them in a club. Another of my hobbies is playing the piano and transverse flute. I think making music is a great way to express your feelings or emotions and it sounds beautiful. Moreover, there is a very creativ side on me, thats why I am really into painting, design, writing, reading and acting. About going on a exchange year I`m looking forward the most to have the experience of diving into in a different culture and lifestyle. I want to learn more about the country, the people and customs. I am also very curios about the High School I`m going to visit and of course my future host family with whom I hope to get along very well and have a wonderful year.

Self-Description:

My name is Niklas and by the end of February 2022 I will be 16 years old. My hobbies and interests are mostly in the computer and technic range. I have to diffrent clubs after school aswell. Every of them is once a week. The first club is the tech club of your school for stage and performance equipment. I am there since the 5. class after I changed to that school. Last year I was promoted by our school's director to lead this club and take the responsibility for the management and actions of the club. My other club is the computer science club. There we are 3 members and one teacher. As example I am writing software code for smartphone apps. Together we build an electronic door lock which can be remote controlled with a website. With my current app project I am working to that we can handel this process with an login at our smartphones. Aswell I am going to my fencing club once a week for 2 hours. That is always really exhausting but is nice and makes a lot of fun. I am most looking forward to see many new things during the exchange. For example not just the view of a tourist during a travel program but to see how the people live in the US because it is a famous country from a lot of movies and videos. So I would like to see how it is to live there.
