“Thank you for hosting me.  Let me tell you about myself.  I’m a 17-year-old Japanese
high school student.  My school is woman’s school and I’m attending English
course.  I have two older sisters and a younger sister.  I Iike books, music, watching
animation, and cooking.  When I stay at your house, I want to make Japanese food or
sweets and share with you.  And, I’d like to be of help with anything.  Someday, I want
to be a manager and make money in the stock market.  So I want to improve my
English ability to use in my future job.  I have been to foreign countries several times.  
But it is the first time for me to stay for a long time so I feel nervous.  I will try my best to
improve my English ability and grow myself through my study abroad.  I might be
surprised by the differences between Japanese culture and American culture, but I
would like to increase knowledge by learning a lot of your country’s culture.”
