    Dear workawayers, hope this message will find you well and safe from this pandemic...

    We are looking for a NATIVE GERMAN, FRENCH or ENGLISH SPEAKING Workawayer to help us to improve those languages and/or teach piano and/or ukelele to our children. They are at a begginer level in piano. Also help with reading music will be very helpful!

    Now, we ALSO LOOKING FOR A TEACHER OR STUDENT WHO CAN HELP WITH CHEMISTRY, BIOLOGY and/or MATHS at level of 1st year of IB, International Baccalaureate.

    We are looking for an enthusiastic person who enjoys being with children, who is talkative, open-minded, smily, responsible, honest, independent and not lazy!

    We speak Català, Spanish, English and French.

    We want to learn a new foreign language, German, as our 5th language.

    The exchange involves mainly teach some piano,ukele, reading music (solfeo) in one of the foreign languages indicated above, and some help with german homework would be very appreciated. Also some light help with housework is expected.

    They play piano at a begginer level so you could help them if you also play it!
    They love singing and they are part of an international choir that reharse three days a week.

    We all love cycling, walking and going to the beach. The girls practice swimming and artistic gymnastics and they do competitions.

    In return we OFFER: your own room, breakfast, and dinner per working day, weekends 3 meals a day are included, clean sheets, a towel, free wi-fi connection if you bring your own lap top, spanish speaking practice with us (we will love to exchange your mother tongue with us too), use of shared swimming pool.

    WORKING HOURS may vary but you will normally have mornings free and we will mostly need you from 5pm onwards but not every day. We will need you on Saturdays and Sundays full time as is when the girls have more free time. Hours can vary and we may do excurssions together, visiting museums, cycling, going to concerts, etc...

    We live in a nice city with all amenities, in the outskirts of Barcelona and very well connected to the city by unexpensive public transport.

    P.D.: if you have any health problems or you are taken any medication, please let us know. It's not a problem but we like to know that in advance. We recommend you to bring a private medical insurance or a European health card.

    We need proof of your travel to make a commitment with you, so we'll like to see a scan of your flight,train tickets in advance. Never buy tickets without confirming the dates with us first!! Always double check with us our availability before buying your tickets. And only buy your tickets after having had a skype conversation with us, have made all the questions you need and have made the decision that this is the placement you want.

    We are very anti smoking and regret that we DO NOT offer places to smokers. Can't stand the smell !

    Two of us are vegetarian so if you follow a vegetarian diet is not a problem at all.

    We will try to make the most fun and enjoyable exchange for our workawayers who come with lots of enthusiasm towards a cultural exchange and who respect our house and the roules.

    Please bear in mind that daily routines in Spain may have different times from your home country.

    Looking forward to hear from you soon!
