Dear Host Family,
Please be patient.
I’m from another culture, so I don’t always know how to behave here.
I’m still learning English, so I don’t always know what you’re saying.
I’m a teenager, so I don’t always make the best choices – even if I really think I’m trying.
I’m not perfect, and I will probably let you down.
But I’m here because I want to learn.
Don’t give up on me yet. I need you more than you know.
