We are, as home-schooling Polish family, a bit crazy!
We love to travel around our educational Treasure Island. We enjoy meeting new people, tasting new food, singing new songs, and playing new games. We believe that there are no boring places, nor boring people. Each country is worthy to see, and equally, each human is worthy to talk with.
Our girls (14 and 11 y.o.) are very friendly. They love making new friends. They are sporty and very clever.
We live in Wroclaw, which is close to the South West border of Poland. It is a big town (pop. 600 th.) that is close to Germany and Czech Republic, and it is considered one of the most interesting and friendly places in Poland. Wroclaw is a beautiful city, full of history, life and colour; cultural centre with many interesting places and entertainment, both for kids and grown-ups alike: universities, theatres, clubs, cute cafes etc. A very walkable city, but if walking is not your thing, public transport is great and very affordable.
!5 m. away - in the middle of a big wood we also have our private educational centre. It is a cozy cottage designed for educational needs on a large piece of land- forest-meadow-pond!

As full-time parents and homeschool teachers, we are constantly looking for more and more things to do! It is very rare that we find ourselves not interested in new subjects or activities. That being said, we are open to everyone's talents and hobbies: chest, soccer, history, instruments, cooking, etc. Although, we are not huge fans of wasting time! We love music, books, philosophy, guitar, and our girls play the Cello and Violin. Our house is always full of music, pets, and often, full of friends!
We offer a fun space for you to grow through our Polish Culture! We love to cook traditional meals, attend concerts and shows (which you are always welcome to occompany), and we will tell you the 'must dos' in Wroclaw!
We hope to provide a place full of freedom. A place where we offer just as much to you as you do us.
Our main focus is, of course, the homeschooling and educational portion of your work. We would like your help widen our daughter's English or German vocabulary, listening comprehension, Creative Writing, and interpersonal communication skills, while also making it fun!
Our cottage sits on a beautiful piece of land where we harvest delicious mushrooms, and we would very much appreciate it if were to you come and help. Think of it less as work and more of an outing because the whole family (including our dog) comes out to participate.
We love to cook traditional Polish cuisine, but we also love to taste new dishes from all over the world! You wouldn't have to cook all the time, but it would be interesting on occasion. Our younger daughter loves cooking. She is the masterchef in our house
We have three cats and two dogs, so sometimes if we are in a rush, feeding them would be a part of your daily duties.
Beyond the allotted time for language practice, we hope that you would engage with our daughters in order to always keep them speaking proper English or German.
English, Russian, German, Polish
If you come to visit us you will have the choice of one of the following:
1. You may stay in a nice room in our my house in Wroclaw. Quite a large town S/West of Poland. It is in Krzyki district - 20 minutes from city centre and Old Town.
2. There is also an option to stay in our big cottage on the meadow in the woods. Just a 40 minute drive from Wroclaw. Cosy and quiet; forest-meadow-pond. Very clean and safe.
As It was said, we live in Wroclaw which is close to the South West border of Poland. It is quite a big town (pop. 600 th.) that is close to Germany and Czech Republic, and it is considered one of the most interesting and friendly places in Poland.
