    We mostly want help to improve our english. We would like to have 2 hours of conversation in the evening during the week, and more hours in the weekend, so it would be great if you can speak english natively, or at least very fluently. Besides that, you can also help with some gardening, building project and we can cook together from time to time. As we mostly need help at the weekends, you can have two days off during the week.
