Everyone falls in love with him! And 1 pomeranian puppy.

    We have years and years of experience welcoming students on English language immersions and also workaways for the last 6 years. As you can see from our feedback, the girls that come and stay have a great time, we receive letters and cards and photos from our workaways every year and even the very first one who came still writes to us!

    you will gain language practice in English, I am a trained TEFL teacher so can help you with your speech, I have a very clear English speaking voice and Im told I am very easy to understand!
    You will also learn about pet care, for dogs and cats, again, I worked with animals for 28 years and can teach you many things about pet care!
