Letter to Family
Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Lauren Silverman, and I am writing to you
from Chicago, Illinois. I am a 25-year-old college graduate with a degree in music
performance, music education, and I am currently completing a degree in Teaching English
as a Second Language.
Besides English, the only other language I speak is a minimal amount of Spanish, though I
do understand much more than I speak. If I was to be your au pair, I would ensure that I
do take some classes in your language prior to working for you. I pick up on languages

Last fall, I taught English in South Korea for 6 months, and I understand that living in a
new country requires that you learn not only a new language, but a new culture. As a
person who loves travel, I promise that I will do all I can to fit into your country as
more than a traveler, but as a resident and native.
My friends and family would describe me as an outgoing, enthusiastic, and warm person. I
love music, art, new types of food, hiking, and travel.
If I sound like a person you would like to hear more about, please feel free to contact
me. It would be a pleasure working with you.
