We are a family of four: Arnika (41), my husband Szymon (41) and our two children Karolina (13) and Igor (10). We also have a cute rabbit. My husband is an engineer and I'm a project specialist and a teacher. We live in a nice city of Bydgoszcz in Poland. We are a fun-loving family with many different interests. We love to travel, get to know other cultures and meet interesting people. Our main goal is to learn languages. We would like for a native English speaking Workawayer to teach our children English (my daughter can communicate in English and my son understands quite a lot but does not speak much), the parents are also interested in practising the language. We would also like to start learning Spanish, so if you can speak Spanish fluently, it would be of extra benefit, but not a must.
I am engaged in some language activities with children learning English in two primary schools close to Bydgoszcz and would like you to make a short and simple presentation about your country and its culture for all my groups. You would be expected to do some household chores like a bit of cleaning, ironing and cooking (not much).
We are not vegetarians but don't eat much meat. If you are a vegan we are happy to experiment in some vegan cooking and we are ready to become vegans for the period of your stay with us. We are interested in short term Workawayers.

We are happy to show you our city and the surroundings. Bydgoszcz is an interesting city with more and more foreigners coming every year. We are ready to introduce you to our Polish customs and culture.
You will be required to teach both of our children English and practise it with the parents too. If you know Spanish we would like you to teach us some of that language (but it isn't necessary). You will be expected to do a little bit of household chores like cleaning, ironing and cooking.
Polish and English
You will have your own room with a single bed. The bathroom will be shared with the children. We live in a two family house on the second floor with a little garden and a nice roof terrace which we share with our neighbours. Of course, you are welcome to use all the facilities at all times. You can use our bikes to move around the city.
There are many sightseeing attractions in Bydgoszcz. We live quite close to the city centre and it can be easily reached on foot or by bike.
