As the Pandemic has not entirely disappeared, we need to be vigilant, as another variant could emerge. I am now considering requests as usual.
I am a qualified EFL and IELTS Teacher (English as a Foreign Language) and enthusiastic DIYer (Do It Yourself) who is renovating a detached house, north of Manchester City. I welcome volunteers who enjoy learning practical skills, such as decorating, (painting and hanging wallpaper) and general gardening. I am also planning to create a kitchen garden where I hope to grow vegetables. I also welcome help with simple household tasks such as vacuuming, washing up kitchen utensils after meals, and keeping the fridge clean. As I want to landscape the garden, anyone with building or carpentry skills is particularly welcome.
You will have the opportunity of improving your English language skills for everyday situations, and I usually recommend a minimum period of 1 week. Renovating a house and gardening can sometimes be a bit dirty, dusty and messy, and suggest you wear your old clothes when attempting some of the tasks. I cannot accept absolute beginners in English, I am not offering a language course, you will need at least intermediate level English or B1 English.
The best way to find out your level is to follow a test, many are available on You Tube.
I currently volunteer at the Science & Industry Museum in Manchester and assist with learning experiences as part of the Museum’s activities in creating Science Capital in the community.
Non-smokers particularly welcome, Vegans might feel a little uncomfortable as I cook with animal products, such as eggs, cheese, fish and chicken.
For those of you who are seriously interested in studying the English language, the British Council website in your country, and the BBC website Learning English, both offer learning materials available for you to use.

I am also interested in Science Communication and volunteer at the Science & Industry Museum in Manchester. There are many exhibitions which I can arrange for you to visit, as well the free walking tours in Manchester which you can join.
I enjoy cooking, and collect cookery books, and have learnt to prepare a variety of worldwide dishes. I am not really a red meat eater, preferring fish and chicken, as well as vegetables. You will need to buy your own food that I can show you how to prepare in order to improve your culinary skills.
The local public Gardens are within walking distance which is not far from the local Market, trading 4 days a week.
Bolton also has a public swimming pool and public library with a small museum and art gallery.
There are many shops however some have not reopened following the Pandemic.
Are you interested in improving your existing English language skills beyond intermediate level, as well as acquiring some DIY skills, painting, hanging wallpaper, weeding a garden, mowing a lawn, painting a garden fence and help create a vegetable plot, or perhaps acquiring some building skills. All equipment and materials are provided including work gloves.
I am renovating a 3 bedroom house, and a recently decorated bedroom can be made available to you. Renovating and gardening can sometimes be a bit dirty and messy, so I can offer some old second hand clothing, I have collected, for those dusty tasks.
I live 35 minutes by bus and train from the center of Manchester which has a lot of major attractions.
Manchester International Airport is approximately 45 minutes away by bus and train. The Lancashire coast (Liverpool, Southport) is also not far away, by public transport, train or bus being available.
Before I can make you an offer, I will require you to confirm your identity by sending a copy of a document, such as a passport, to my email address, together with a copy of a vaccination document.
