Letter to Family

My name is Sara. I am a 21 year-old (female) Spanish student. Although I currently live in
Madrid, where I am one year short of completing my undergraduate studies in architecture
at the Polytechnic University of Madrid, I actually come from Alfaro in the little region
of La Rioja. Compared to Madrid, Alfaro is a small town (approximately 10,000
inhabitants), and is situated on the center north of Spain, just below Basque Country.

I come from a family of 4: My father, Gregorio is self employed and run a small
construction company,my mother is a yoga teacher and my only brother is engineer and
currently he is working in Brazil in the Energy & Environment sector, which I like a lot.
I am very concern with environment.

In about a year I plan to finish my studies abroad through the Erasmus Program, and then I
plan to pursue a masters in renewable energies applied to architecture, but I am yet to
make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would
like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have
time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I
think spending a time abroad would be particularly interesting.
In the summer of 2009 I spent 1 month in the south of England and the experience was very
enriching, I had also the opportunity to spend 1 month in Romania with a exchange program
of my High School because I was awarded with the first prize in a writing competition.

My first language is, of course, Spanish, and I am quite fluent in English. I started
learning English in primary school, and during last year I’ve been attending private
classes. I have in addition been taking courses taught in English at university.

I am nevertheless aware that learning a language within a classroom context is by itself,
incomplete. So, in order to really be at ease in English, I feel that a cultural immersion
would do me a lot of good.

When it comes to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and
informal contexts. Among others, I provided after-school tuition to children aged between
5 to 12 years. I also organized for them and took part in recreational indoor and outdoor
activities: we sang, danced, played games, role played, drew, painted, and narrated
stories. We also visited the public library, the local animal park, went out on picnics
and a camping trip.

I have helped my aunts and uncles look after my little cousins. Although my looking after
them is now restricted to my university vacations, as a teenager, I was nevertheless much
more involved in caring for them on a almost daily basis. I can comfortably say that I
sincerely enjoy spending time with children.

When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being
outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to,
doing sport and reading a good book. I also enjoy painting and drawing, specially city

As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host
family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them for at least 1 month. I
would like to be part of your family for a while and that you feel comfortable and happy
with my presence. Also, I would like to learn about your country and habits. Lastly,
although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to
attend day time English language classes.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions
you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your
interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement.

Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,
