We are a family in Virum north of Copenhagen. My husband and I are both medical doctors. We have three children, Julius 19, Laura 16 and Jeppe 10 yrs, and a huge lovable dog. Currently Laura´s room is vacant for you to live in for 1-3 weeks as she is in France for a year abroad. Her getting the opportunity to learn french, made the remaining part of our family think about how WE could also enhance our level of speaking french, by maybe getting af french-speaking person come and stay at our place and talking with us. Our home is near a beautifull lake, situated in a nice garden in Virum, a sleepy suburb. To visit Copenhagen you can go by one of our bikes to the trainstation 10 mn from where we live, and then CPH is within 20 mn reach.
We invite you to come and contribute to our family by your personal way of being, by your culture in general, and/or by musical or culinary skills you might have, but mainly our aim by inviting a workawayer is learning french, so a native french speaking person is preferred. It is not really a child care job -but given that a 10 yrs old is part of our family we hope that you like engaging in talks and activities that he would enjoy too, even though he's just started learning french.
we hope to hear from you !!!!
best regards Louise and Tobias
You would primarily benefit from having a place to stay for free, close to our cool small capital, CPH.
We would take you to our favorite places if you want :) but in our everyday life we wouldn't see each other during daytime as Jeppe attends school/football training and we grown-ups work long days, so primarily we would appreciate being together for cooking and enjoying our evening meals, mon-friday, and also breakfast at weekends.
Language practice, french. Julius and I, Louise are at a medium level. Jeppe and Tobias are beginners.
You would be sleeping in Lauras room. Its a room with lots of light, two doors opening to the garden. Great bed ! Guitar and bike to borrow if wanted. You can use the living rooms, toilet facilities, shower, kitchen and garden. We expect our guest to tidy up at all times his og her own things. The stay would be of a maximum of 2-3 weeks.
For all meals that we prepare and share together, the expense of buying the food would be ours. For breakfast and lunch you could take what is in our fridge and supplement at your own expense for what else you like .
there's not as such a working time/time off.. We hope to receive a talkative and friendly person, who just likes being with us, when we are at home in the evening, but preferably a person, who is not depending on us for having a good time. So we would expect you to feel responsible yourself for having a fun and interesting experience with other sources than our family life too, to be honest :) so that we won't feel bad about not entertaining you when we are busy, as we often are :)
