  • Description


    I'm a 50-year old woman, living in a beautiful house in Jena (Germany). My profession is to teach yoga. I'm fluent in speaking German and Russian and am searching for somebody, who is able to improve my English. Right now I'm in a beginner level and I'd like to improve my grammar, pronunciation and conversation skills.

    Jena is flourishing town in the middle of Germany. A University is in the town and a quarter of its inhabitants are students. So the city is very young. The University also offers language courses. Jena lies in the scenic Saale valley, bounded by steep hills. Therefor it's easy to reach the nature, you go through a forest up the steep hill and then have a stunning view on the Saale valley and the town. The city offers also a variety of different sports (also very exotic ones like Ultimate frisbee, Qudditch, bouldering) and has a very nice festival beginning in July until the end of August (Kulturarena). Weimar is only 30 km away, Erfurt 50 km. The nice Thueringer Wald and Harz within 1-2 hours drive.

    I'm looking for a female with teaching experience (preferred an english language teacher), who is motivated to help me improving my english as the main volunteer work. As this isn't going to take the entire day, I'd be glad to have some additional help for gardening and house work. Non smokers only.

    Jena is very easy to travel to (it has a train station and a stop for long distance busses). It has a university, a lot of historical and cultural places and beautiful mountains/hills around (great for hiking or biking). It's close to Weimar and Erfurt - as you see: lots of sight seeing opportunities.
    We live next to the city center (10 min walk) at a small hill next to the forrest - perfect view guaranteed.
