  • Description


    We are a family of 4 originally from Iran! Sari (24), Sophie (19), Nunu und Babu (MUM and DAD). Nunu helps out in a flower shop and meets up voluntarly with refugees to help while Babu works most of the day. Sara is not living home anymore but she lives very near and visits us pretty often. Sophie is just enjoying her gap year, traveling around, doing workaway and now studiying for an exam- and thats why we need you!!

    We are looking for an english native speaker (preferably british english) who can come from the 12 th of August for some weeks and who speaks only english with us. Babu und Nunu speak just a little bit english and need to improve their skills- but especially Sophie who is already pretty fluent. It would be great if you could also help Nunu cleaning the house a bit (or help Babu in the garden). Both works would be very light and as we are all very easy going we will find a way that everybody is happy :)
    We do look preferably for a girl in her twenties, or younger, who's easy going, openminded, talkative and active! We need somebody who is ready to help in the house, taking the initative, reliable and trustworthy!

    Our day starts around 8/9.00 am. During the day you will have a lot of free time as we will all kinda be occupied with our own things. You could help in the morning a little bit and have the day off then till like 7pm when we will have dinner together and speak english and have conversations etc.. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner is provided, if you need something else we would be thankful if you collaborate in the food shopping :)

    Family is very importat to us, we love food and cooking or baking (healthy), we all have our creative personalities and some crazy character traits. If you want to cook or something we are always open for new things! This will be our first workaway experience, but we do our best that both of us have a great time :)

    Feel free to message us if you have any questions, hope we hear from you soon !! :) :) :)

    Photos of the room etc will follow soon!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As we are originally from Iran you would learn about our rich culture (personality, language, food, family,...). Nunu is the best cook ever, you will see ;) You can be with Nunu and join the refugee meetings if she has ones at that moment.
    Enjoy summer in Germany, meet new people and be happyyyyy

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We're living in Bad Soden am Taunus, next to the field, which is a little city near Frankfurt. You can go to Frankfurt center by metro (20 min) oder with the car (15min). You can profit the ride in the mornings with Babu who works in Frankfurt.. But all in all we do have so much around us, very near, that you dont need to go to Frankfurt city center very often!
    The next Bus station is 5 min away, the train station 10 min. We do have a bike that we can give to you during your stay if you want!
    We do have a public swimming pool near the house that you can reach within 5 min.
    It might seem like a little town or something, but dont worry its not like that and you will have a great time here!! :)
