As my wife is from Canada & I am British but my mom side I am German. So we speak Canadian French, British English, & German language...if you want improve your British English, Canadian French & German than it is a good place. we are very proud to say that we have canadian & British culture legacy.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live in a beautiful rural home 28 km from Zurich. We expect our visitor to watch the kids when Cathy needs an extra hand. Additionally, we expect our visitor to fold the children's laundry, keep the playground tidy, and clean up after the kids. Alternatively, we could welcome a workawayer who can help to Philip in the gardening, we always have so many weeds to remove!
The maximum work load for our workawayer would be 4 hours a day, 5 days a week (so never more than 20 hours a week).
We provide a private bedroom in our beautiful ranch-style home. it would be pleasure if volunteer would like to share Cusinee with us, nevertheless there is small kitchen in another room so they may cook their own food. All expenses of food provide by us. We also provide internet, a bicycle and a car if you want.
Unfortunately public transportation does not work well here and distances are huge, so we highly recommend that our workawayer may use our car or cycle. There are so many places to visit in Zurich and so many sports to do here.
