Hi there! We are a multilingual family with French, Czech & Australian background, currently living in Berlin-Reinickendorf.
Having moved here from Australia only 3 of years ago we are still adjusting to the local life, and we need some (lots of) urgent help with the German language! We have all achieved about B2-C1 level, but this is not enough, we want to improve, and fast!
We would therefore like to host someone who is a good communicator and who could speak with us German every day, plus help the children a bit with school work (so mostly afternoons). Apart from that some light general housework would also be appreciated.
If you speak very well German (native or near as good), you enjoy spending time with kids we would love to hear from you!
We can host only 1 person at a time, sorry no couples or families.
Thank you and we are looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Help around the house
Workawayer can spend time with our family, enjoy the nearby forests, lakes, shops and cafes, and the local relaxed lifestyle. He/She can also easily travel to Berlin city for a more vibrant atmosphere, by hopping on a Bus, S-Bahn, U-Bahn (25-40min trip to city centre).
While staying with us, Workawayer can get to know our family, exchange travel experience with us, learn a bit about the French / Czech / Australian culture, and the languages spoken at home.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Speak German!!! Help the children with school work, help with some light housework (dishwasher, laundry, general house cleanliness), and if possible, occasional help with meal preparation (lunch / dinner).
I am happy to cook Vegetarian foods, but if you are a Vegan, please prepare your own meals (I will provide the ingredients).
This host offers a language exchange
We need to improve our German.
A bedroom, next to a semi-private bathroom (shower & toilet).
Our house is located in a quiet area near a forest, the nearest bust stop is 3 min walk; the nearest S-Bahn (S25) station is 1km, and the U-Bahn (U6) is 3km away (reachable by bus). It is very easy to get around using the public transport and it takes only around 25-40 min to reach central Berlin. A bicycle is also available.
Reinickendorf is very popular for those who are looking for peace and nature on the semi-rural outskirts of the big city.
Tranquil Reinickendorf is full of variety, it is a mix of modern housing estates and tiny, historic villages like Wittenau, Lübars, Heiligensee etc.
Tegeler See lake has landing for river cruise boats, and the lakeside district of Tegelort has a car ferry across the water to Spandau.
Expansive Tegeler Forest is a nature reserve with trails, and a home to Schloss Tegel - a mansion dating to the 16th century and the one-time residence of naturalist Alexander von Humboldt.
Large Tegeler See lake is popular for sailing, while the smaller Flughafensee, Hermsdorfersee and Heiligensee are known for its beaches.
