Hello, I have been given the task to write a letter to you, and I am very excited. My name is Victor Weimar Gade and I live at home together with my parents and my sister. I am a 14 year old boy, and I like to play computer games. I go at Hindholm Private School just outside the small town Fuglebjerg. It’s a quite small school with about 250 pupils. I am in 8th grade and personally I think I am quite good at everything, especially history and social studies. The only subjects I strongly dislike are the more practical ones as needlework, woodwork and home economics. After secondary school I think I will continue my studies at the upper secondary school/advanced level. I will probably study something within society or history, maybe also economy or religion. I live in a small town, Fuglebjerg, about 2 kilometres from my school. It has about 2500 inhabitants and is doubtless one of the most boring places in the world. Most of my friends live over 10 kilometres from me, and many of them in the country. Besides that Fuglebjerg is actually okay. After all, the town is located in Denmark, which I personally consider to be the best country in the world. I see myself as a patriot and I would die for my country. I'm on the edge of being a nationalist, but anyway‌ The reason for my mildly fanatical attitude about Denmark is, among other things, due to my travels abroad. In fact I become a bit more patriotic for every travel I take. Last time was in October, when I was in Berlin. All the pain and penury I saw made me love Denmark even more. Of course there are things about


Denmark I don’t like, for example our government or some of the political parties, which the government unify with. Among other things could be our habit of "barking like small dogs". We can’t let other people do things without interfering. This goes for the country itself as well as every single one of its inhabitants. Another disadvantage is our flair to be a little reserved sometimes, which truly is my hate characteristic. I know the two things contradict each other, but that’s the way it is. In my spare time I like to play computer games. I am quite good at the most RPG games. Especially a game named League of Legends. Hopefully you also play it, which actually is quite possible, because there are really many French people playing it, too. I also play WoW and Swtor (a multiplayer Star Wars based game). When I don’t play computer I am most likely to practise Parkour or athletics. I am pretty good at parkour, spear throwing and long distance running. Normally I don’t have any duties during the weekdays. I am “Free as the birds” when it comes to that. Sometimes (honestly not very often) I need to clean my room in the weekend. I am never really in my room, but still it always looks like shit after a couple of days. I have concluded with myself the opportunity is ghosts, but sadly my parents don’t agree. When you compare Denmark to France, you discover a lot of differences. Obviously there is the size, but also the food, daily life and the history. But it’s your job to tell me about France, I hope you have enjoyed my letter and I will look forward to receive yours. Sincerely, Victor W. Gade
