    Writing To My Host Family

    I'm writing to my future host family in Japan, but I don't know quite what to say. I only know basic desu sentances such as "Watashi wa juuyonsai desu," etc. I'm looking to say things like "thank you for your kindness in hosting me," "I'm so excited to come," etc. Help?
