Dear Host Family,
thank you for taking the time to read my letter.
My name is Wendy Nicol and I am 22 1/2 years old. I am living with grandparents with 4 guinea pigs and 6 cats here in philippines, which is a big city in the south of Philippines. My dad lives with his new wife and son half an hour away but I see him regularly. At the moment, I am currently studying bachelor's degree of education on National Teachers College.
In my spare time, I love to play online games and badminton. The last three summer holidays I helped at a kids summer sports camp and was assigned to teach the youngest group of children the basics of badminton. In between the short exercise lessons I was responsible for entertaining the children and we had lots of fun playing hide and seek, doing face paintings and many more games. I also love reading, especially English novels and I can’t wait to have access to an English Library to browse through all the literature I like.
I would love to become your next Au Pair because I love children and enjoy spending time with them. I am prepared and I am well aware of the fact that being like a big sister for your children comes along with responsibilities for them and it will not always be just play and fun. My calm and patient personality will help me to master more difficult situations for instance when the kids are tired or don’t want to listen to me. Living with me is really easy as I am not a demanding person. I do respect that the house is your house and that I have follow your house rules. If something works not quite as it should, I prefer to talk instead of ignoring things. But I am sure that I will adapt to the new tasks and daily routine quickly and become a big help for you.
I am really curious to hear all about you and your children. The information I have read so far sounds really interesting. I hope you like my letter and I can’t wait to hear back from you.
Thank you for reading my letter and kind regards,
