Letter to the family

Dear prospective host family,?

First of all I would like to thank you for taking your time to read my letter. In the following lines I would like to describe myself in order to help you getting an impression of me and furthermore explain why I would like to spend the next weeks with your family, taking care of your children.?‍?‍?

My name is Larissa, I am 22 years old. I am currently attending my bachelor-degree as a primary school teacher for all kids (including kids with special needs). I will be a teacher for the subjects German, mathematics and music.??‍?

Since I was a little girl I dreamed of living and working in another country and experience its culture. Moreover, the year as an Au-Pair abroad is some kind of a journey to improve myself and grow my personality.
The reason why I would like to become an au pair is that I really love spending time with children. I enjoy explaining them new things, have a lot of fun and try new activities. It would be fun to see the kids developing and being a part of their childhood. A kid, who smiles, makes me smile. ?
Living in a new family, meeting new people and improving my English are also important for me.

I am an open-minded, friendly and independent woman who has many experiences in childcare and babysitting and also working at different school types.??

Of course I have to clean my own household at home. Especially I have to clean my own room, unload the dishes and regularly have to vacuum the entire house. Furthermore I iron and wash the clothes. I often cook and especially love baking at the weekend for relatives.???

I have passed my driver’s license in October 2018. Since then I had no accident or any ticket. I drive every day and have experience with driving on the suburban, country and highway. I’m also experienced in driving on the left side since my last holiday was in Cyprus.??

I have taken part in a first aid course during my time in the driving school

I choose Australia where I would like to be an au pair because I have always been very interested in the untouched Nature, the spectacular landscape and the richness in species. The people of Australia are known for being heart-warmed and open-minded, which the reason is, I would like to meet them and discover their lifestyle and culture. ? I hope that I will learn a lot and that I will develop to become more independent. By chances it would be awesome to see a lot of new places.?

I hope that you, as my possible host family, will help me to reach these goals. I would love to become a member of your family and not only be an employee because I doubt that I could spend a year with nothing but polite distance. I really need warm people around me that I can feel close to.❤️
Now I told you a little about me and I would love to hear something from you. I am looking forward to getting to know you.
Kindest greetings from Germany,
Larissa : ) ?
