Région: MarcheWe are husband and wife, young couple, looking for someone from Germany or Austria who can talk to us in German. Although our level of German is quite low, we are particularly interested in doing conversation and work on texts about classical music and literature. In exchange we offer a pleasant stay in Italy. We love music, cinema, theatre, literature, philosophy, site-seeing... anything cultural. We also love nature, especially hiking in the mountains or spending time by the sea.
Région: Republic of SrpskaWe are a language school from Banja Luka, the capital of the Republic of Srpska entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We are the leading language school in Bosnia, and one of the largest as well. Our headquarters are located in Banja Luka, but we also have a network of branches in over 20 other towns in Republic of Srpska. The school is located in the center of the city, so everything is near to hand. As far as the accommodation is concerned, it is also in a pretty good location, from where you can reach the center either by going on foot or by taking a bus. We are looking for people who are native speakers of English or German and who would work in our institution starting in November till the end of December. The work includes teaching conversational classes to our students. Classes last for an hour, and as we work mostly in the evening, the average time spent on teaching would be 3 hours per day. The job would include traveling to other towns where we have our courses (we provide car). So, if you are a confident driver-this is a great chance to work and, at the same time, travel across the country, meet a lot of different people and share your experience with them. In short, you would be able to really get to know culture of the country by getting to know people from different parts of it.
Région: AlgarveWe are a family of three (Christin, Anton & 7-year old Matthew). We are trying to "keep the dream alive" of living in the Algarve and enjoying this beautiful and peaceful place. We have started a small tourism business near Aljezur offering house/cottage accomodation, jeep tours, bike tours & rental, walking tours and surfboard/wetsuit hire. We are therefore looking for help in various areas of our everyday lives and need people/couples to apply for volunteering with us. Ideally volunteers will need to be 25 years or older and pretty fit as we may need you to do manual work or join in on tours such as bicycle or walking. The age is important as you may be required to drive a car. Practical minded and a hard working ethic are highly regarded by us.
Région: BourgogneI am an Australian woman living in a small village on the River Saone which is abundant with water birds and wildlife in Lechatelet, Bourgogne. I have been renovating an old hotel which is now running as a small bar, 2 gites offering guests meals. It is very difficult to operate the bar and kitchen at the same time. I love my tiny village of 204 people and it's perfectly situated within 30 minutes of Dijon, Beaune, Nuit St. Georges all of which offer lots to see and do. Of course the wine and cheese are simply superb.
