Letter to the family

Dear Host Family,
My name is Harriet and I am a graduate student from Manchester, England. I recently graduated from university with a degree in Spanish studies. I am a positive, caring and hard-working 22-year-old that loves to experience new cultures and visit new destinations. I currently live with my mum and brother in an area called Cheshire, south of Manchester which is very quiet and peaceful. I would like to become an Au Pair because it will give me the opportunity to work with children and care for them while hopefully becoming part of a new family where I can offer my personal qualities into their family life.
During my studies at university, I spent a year in Madrid where I was able to improve my Spanish speaking skills, since then I feel like have lost my confidence which is why I would love to Au pair in a South American country so I can further improve my skills. During the year in Madrid I taught English in a secondary school and also in private lessons for a family. This is why I feel I would not only be in a position to care for the children but also help them with their English as I have experience of preparing lessons and interacting with the children at school and in a home environment.
I believe I am a sensible, responsible person who is extremely trustworthy. I can adapt to new situations and would love to take on a new challenge in my life so that I can grow as a person. As I mentioned I am really eager to learn Spanish as I had not had the opportunity in recent months.
I hope to hear from you soon.
Harriet.

Experience

As I have mentioned, I worked in a school in Madrid and provided private lessons for a family which means that I have spent a lot of time around children. I helped one of my classes to produce a production of Matilda in English and also helped some students to prepare for their Cambridge exams. The family I worked for had four children aged 1, 4, 6 and 11 years old. I felt more like a nanny than a teacher and I loved every hour I spent with them. I completely love working with children and I feel that I am able to bond with them easily. I would love to become an Au Pair because it will be a rewarding experience. I am eager to help children with their English and it will help me in my career path in doing something I know I will love.
