Dear (imaginary) Host Family
thank you for accepting me! I am really looking forward to seeing you at the airport in two weeks! You let me regain strength. I was really devastated and I thought I would never end up in Australia, because all my fellow exchange students had already left or had a hostfamily. I started asking myself why its still me that didn't have a host family, even though I had contacted AFS half a year before the actual deadline. You give me self-confidence again and you are going to be so glad that you have chosen me. Not only am I not spoilt, I will too bring you some Swiss chocolate, so good decision :) . I think this is a great possibility for you to learn more about the Swiss culture, and I'm really excited about getting to know both your way of living and Australian culture! Your choice is good too, because I am a rather quiet, adapted teenager and I am very uncomplicated. I don't expect much, nore need I much and I'm sure I'll cope well with every single family member! You have made the right decsion, from the moment you contacted me to find more about me! Thank you, my (imaginary)
Your host son
