    Hello/Hola/Bonjour/Bon Giorno workawayers around the world!

    Urgently Needed volunteer:
    "Camp Counselor for December 2019"

    ABOUT ME __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    My name's Deni Abdillah M, just call me Deni or Dani. I'm 33 y/o and an English lecturer. I'm an open-minded person, have a sense of humor, fun, and communicative. I go to work at College of Health Sciences. I teach English for Specific Purposes: Nursing and Midwifery.

    Furthermore, I love football, futsal, jogging, hiking, hanging out, trekking, camping, walking, surfing on the internet, swimming, reading, and watching a movie.

    WORKPLACE
    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    My workplace is in Bukittinggi. It is Yarsi College of Health Science. I really need your help for English (speaking). We are very eager to learn English with people from other countries. We are ready in exchanging cultures and languages. Our mother tongue is Minang and Bahasa (Indonesia) is our national language.

    Your presence will boost our students' motivation, and they can interact by using the target language (English) directly. Then, you will stay in Bukittinggi. I have one private room for you and food as the exchange.

    * I'm really eager learning languages; Spanish, Italian and French.

    LIVING PLACE & FAMILY
    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    I have been living in Sawahlunto for 5 years in a rented house. We can provide you a private room also. I have been married for 5 years and I have a daughter (4 y/o). My wife is a civil servant (Elementary school teacher). She is really kind and busy, and she is very good in cooking. My daughter is cute and adorable. But now, I live in Bukittinggi (parent's in law house).

    Furthermore, my parents live in Payakumbuh (just 2.5 hours from Sawahlunto). My dad is retired (He was a sports teacher), while my mom is a housewife. Now, my mom is planting corn, banana, cassava, and other vegetables. The farm field is about 10 minutes from my parents' house. In the house, we have one bedroom empty. It is a special room for a guest.

    CULTURE
    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    Our philosophy in Minangkabau is "Adat Basandi Syarak, Syarak Basandi Kitabullah". It means that we live and act based on the Qur'an (Holy Book). Minangkabau is 100% Moslem (Islam). Our tradition is unique, that is Matrelinelism system. We follow our mother blood. Based on BBC Indonesia, Minangkabau is the biggest tribe with using Matrilinealism system in the world. Based on our religion (Islam/Muslim) and culture), if you are an unmarried couple, you are not allowed to sleep together when you are coming to my place.

    NATURE
    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    We have beautiful nature in Sumatera Barat. There are Lakes, mountains, jungles, beaches, valley, and canyon. I think you can start googling with the keyword: Sumatera Barat, West Sumatera, Bukittinggi, Sawahlunto, Payakumbuh, Sianok Canyon, Jam Gadang, Harau Valley, Minangkabau.

    I would love to try hiking and climbing to the mountain; Mount Merapi in Bukittinggi - Sumatera Barat - Indonesia. Because I live and work in three different cities, so I know those cities very much.

    We are very welcome for both native and non-native speaker to join us.

    Please do not hesitate to contact and ask me some questions about the program or everything you would like to know.

    Warm regard,


    Deni
