I am Marlies Bijker, 21 years old, and I am Dutch.
I am currently in my second year of the study Applied Psychology, something I enjoy a lot.
Because I like to travel, meet people from other cultures and want to learn foreign languages, I would like to stay with people and get to know a country and language that way.
In my spare time, I like to play sports, especially volleyball, and I enjoy watching movies or reading a book.
I live on a dairy farm, so I have experience with working with cows and lots of other animals.
My earlier experiences with Workaway so far have been working on a blue- and raspberry farm in Peru, and I have been an au pair in Spain. A few months later, I spent a week working on a farm in Whales. My latest workaway experience was last summer, when I spent a month on a campsite in Sweden. My main job was entertaining the children who camped there, by building rafts, crafting things like bracelets and play other games with them.
I can do household jobs, take care of children and help you with language learning.
I am fluent in Dutch, and I do speak English, but I am not entirely fluent in English. Still I think I can help you if you are a beginner, especially because I understand what it's like to learn English as a second language. I do speak very little Spanish. I know a lot of words in Spanish and I can read children's books in the language, but I have difficulty understanding the fast language when it's spoken.
I have worked for 4 years in a supermarket, in the bakery, butchery and as a cashier, so I have experience with talking to and helping people. I enjoy helping people.
