Letter to my Host Family

My name is Vittorio, I am 15 years old and I came from Italy. I live in a little village. It is a well-known village thanks to its history and food. As a matter of fact, Napoleon came here in order to sign an important peace treaty. But the most curious aspect about my village is the typical dish: everyone here loves snails! Actually, I do not like them at all. I live with my parents and my brother in a quite big house: we have got a big garden where my dogs run and play all day long. I attend a special high school that specializes in physics and automotive mechanics. I really enjoy my high school. I play soccer with my team Cheraschese three times a week. Spending time with my team is very fun and now we are happy because we are the first team in our rank. Another sport that I practice less often is skiing, because I have a lot of fun and you can see a beautiful landscape. One of my hobbies is cooking Italian dishes, and especially cakes. I will cook some Italian dishes for my host family so that you will now a little bit of my culture as well. This is why you should host me so I can cook all these amazing foods. I’m very reliable: everybody can count on me. I am very spontaneous and friendly. I am also ambitious and I never give up: this is the reason why I have never had any doubts about this experience. I really enjoy traveling and I would like to discover new peoples and their cultures
