Florian from Switzerland
About this Student
I am very much looking forward to get in touch with you and get to know you. My name is Florian. I live together with my family in a bilingual city. We do not own any pets, but I still like animals a lot. I am currently attending high school in the first year, majoring in Physics and applied Mathematics.
I currently play badminton in a club and regularly attend the training sessions there, plus I go to strength training twice a week. I used to fence, play basketball and table tennis. I have also been in the Boy Scouts since I was 4 years old.
I am very interested in sports, and I like to learn new things. I like humorous people with whom you can talk openly. I am also a fan of the ice hockey club and often go to their home games. Here in Switzerland, as a family, we usually go skiing and sledding together in the winter.
I want to go to the United States because I don’t really know this culture yet and I want to improve my English. I’m curious to see how much America and its culture matches my ideas which I have from books and movies. I also want to leave my comfort zone, because I feel like a lot of things are easy here at home. I am also looking forward to the many sports that are better known in the USA. For example, I would like to try American football, basketball and baseball. I am looking forward to a host family that can teach me a lot about American culture, help me learn English, and have a lot of fun with.
