Au Pair host family letter

8. April 2015 um 18:55 Letzte Antwort: 18. April 2015 um 23:17


Ich will nächtes jahr als au pair nach amerika gehen und muss dafür einen Brief an mögliche Gastfamilien schreiben. Ich habe zwar seit mehreren Jahren in der Schule Englisch, aber da bin ich nicht unbedingt die beste vielleicht gibt es ja jemand der besser englisch kann und mir den Brief oder einen Teil davon korrigieren kann und auch inhaltlich falls es etwas gibt das fehlt oder besser nicht rein sollte...
Würde mich sehr freuen, danke schonmal im vorraus!

hier der Brief:

Dear host family,

First of all I want to thank you for reading my letter and for giving me the chance to give you a little impression of myself and the reasons why I would like to become your Au Pair.

My name is Ju?? and I was born on the ?th of October ??. I live together with my family in ??, Germany. My mother works as a ?? at the local university and my father as a ??. My sister is ? years old and in 8th grade. We are both at the same high school, not far away from the town center. ?? is a town in the south of Germany which is primarily known for having the church with the tallest steeple in the world.

I am going to finish school in June and before I am going to start my studies I would like to go to America as an Au Pair. After my studies I want to work with children so I am thinking about becoming a primary school teacher one day.
I gained my first experiences with children when I started to help out as a trainer in artistic gymnastics which I now do on a regular basis. With four other trainers I train about 55 children, split up in three different groups. Therefore I passed a course where we got some instructions on how we can train the children that they learn new elements easier and a first aid course in 2013. When I was 14 I got my first job as a babysitter. Since then, I am thinking about working with children for the rest of my life and I completed a work placement in a nursery school. Right now I go babysitting at two families regularly. With them I love to go outside, for example at the playground, playing soccer or going on a walk with their bogie wheels and bicycles. If we stay inside we often do handicrafts, play board games or read books.
I really enjoy spending time with children of any age. It is so much fun to play with them and it always makes me happy when I see that they have fun, too! The Au Pair program gives me the chance to see your children growing up and see them smile every day. In addition to that I would love to get to know a new country and culture and, of course, I want to improve my English skills. I have no problems to adapt myself in new situation and I'm always eager to learn new things.

I would describe myself as reliable, helpful, humorous and very patient, especially with children. In my free time I often meet my friends and practice rhythmic gymnastics two times a week. This is the perfect sport for me because I was an artistic gymnast and a dancer before and this is a combination of both. Another hobby of me is arts. I love to paint and even did a part of my A-Levels in arts and crafts.

I got my drivers license in May 2014. By then I was allowed to drive a car as long as one of my parents was with me, until I got my full license in October. Since I dont drive to school by car I am not driving every day, but at minimum two or three times a week when I go to rhythmic gymnastics or to different activities with my friends or my family.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you and to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences, to learn more about your family, and your interests.

Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,

Vielen Dank an alle die sich die Mühe gemacht haben das ganze durchzulesen und mir antworten
