⇒Hello. Let me introduce myself. I grew up in Shimane, the countryside of Japan, surrounded by the beauties of nature. Now I live in Kanagawa near Tokyo with my younger brother. I remember a lot of good things back in my hometown.

So, I played outside with my friends. I often went to sea and mountain with my family. So, now I like play outside! I like watching autumn leaves and taking walks in mountain.

NOTES: なんとはなく書き換えてしまいました。元のままでも通じると思います。

⇒I have ten members in my family: parents, two brothers, two cats and me. My older brother studies to become an accountant in Osaka. My younger brother goes to university in Tokyo. My family is really fantastic!

NOTES: ご両親とお二人のご兄弟、二匹の猫とあなた自身では、九人(?)になります。あとひとりはどなたでしょう。自分の家族のことを、so great and interestingというのは何か違和感を覚えるのですが、fantasticとどう違うのかうまく説明できません。もしかするとどちらもよいかもしれないし、どちらもまずいかもしれません。

When I come back my home, I go out various places with my family.

⇒When I go to my parents house in Shimane, I go out to various places with my family.

NOTES: 「帰省する」は、このように表現されることが多いと思います。おそらく、ふるさとの家が、自分がいつも帰るべき自分の家という感覚が希薄なのではないでしょうか。元の言い方もすばらしいと思います。go various placesは、toがほしいように思います。

I respect my parents. My parents met a foreign country. So, they recommend me to go other country while I am young. And I love children and America before. So, I decide to join this program!!

NOTES: 「両親のことを尊敬しています」という日本語に近い表現は、I am proud of my parents.のように思われますが、この文章では、なぜ尊敬するのかという説明がないので、なんだかそこだけ浮き上がってしまうように感じます。また、このままでは、「あなたも外国にいって結婚相手を見つけなさい」とでもいう感じにはならないでしょうか。海外体験をご両親が勧めてくださる理由があればすてきだと思いますが…。

I took care of my cousin’s son that he was 1 years old a day in two weeks. And I learned English from my cousin. She went to study Britain before.

⇒I takes care of my cousin’s son. He is 1 year old in two weeks. And I learn English from my cousin. She went to study Britain before.

NOTES: コロン(:)は、その直前の語(their work)を具体的に例をあげて説明するための句読点です。もとのように、for exampleを使っても同じです。spending time with childrenとしてもよいと思います。

⇒Would you tell me about your family? I am already looking forward to meeting you and your family. I love cooking. I am more than pleased to help you in the kitchen. What do you usually eat at home?

NOTES: I am already looking forward to meeting you and your family. I love cooking. I am more than pleased to help you in the kitchen. What do you usually eat at home?の一節は、相手から家族紹介の手紙が来たあとの方がさらに自然かもしれません。「そんなご家族なら、もうお会いするのが待てませんわ」という感じですから。

文法の間違いと、あまりに不自然な文を書き換えました。



I am originally from Shimane, Japan, and now I live in Kanagawa, near Tokyo, with my younger brother. My hometown is in the country side. I have many precious memories there. It is surrounded by nature, so I often used to play outside with my friends. I went to the sea and the mountains with my family. I still like outdoor activities. I like looking at the autumn leaves and taking walks in the mountains. Other hobbies of mine are playing sports, particularly basketball, watching movies and reading books and comics. I also like going out for drinks and shopping with my friends. I think I am outgoing, cheerful and mild. I enjoy doing something new. Hopefully I will be able to get used to the new environment quickly.
There are eight people in my family and we have two cats. My older brother is studying to become an accountant in Osaka. My younger brother goes to a university in Tokyo. My family is so great and interesting. When I go back to my hometown, I go out to various places with my family. I respect my parents. My parents met in a foreign country. (???) They recommended that I go to other countries while I am still young. I love children and the United States. That is why I decided to join this program.
I used to take care of my cousin's one-year-old son once every two weeks. I learned English from my cousin who studied abroad in Britain. I now work for a nursery school as a volunteer every day. I help teachers to take children for walks, and I help children to eat lunch or to change clothes. I mostly take care of 1-2-year-old children. I like spending time with children because their smiles are so cute and they have many things I have already forgotten. They make me smile.
I look forward to knowing about you and your family, and hope to make a lasting friendship. I am willing to help you cook since I like to cook. There must be many differences between Japanese amd American cultures; for example, rules, meals, and of course the languages! I am looking forward to sharing cultures with you and your family as much as we can.
My English is not very good but I study hard every day. I like to speak Enlish so I hope that I will be able to speak more fluently soon. I am hoping that I will study and experience various things in the United States. It will broaden my future. I am already excited.
I hope I will have a great time with you all. I am looking forward to seeing you and your family.

"My parents met a foreign country." の意味が分からなかったので、勝手に、外国で知り合っていただき (?) ました。^^;

ご参考までに。。。
