We are a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids - 13 years, 12 years and 4 years) living in a green area of Vienna looking forward to getting to know people from other countries preferably english or spanish native speakers. We are looking for someone to play with and to talk to our kids in order for them to practice their english and/or spanish.
Babysitting and creative play
You will get the chance to know how an Austrian family lives and maybe to pick up some German.

We are a family of 5. We've got two boys (12 and 4 years old) and a girl (11 years old). They are in school / kindergarden until about 3pm. After that they are at home and like to play with someone / talk to someone in english. The 12 years old usually comes home around 3pm on his own. At around that time I usually pick up the smaller one from the kindergarden. So it would be nice if you could spend some time with us after that. On the weekends we sometimes go somewhere on the countryside. Sometimes it will be possible to come with us in case you are interested.
As you see we actually don't "need" someone to help. We just would like to offer our kids the possibility to widen their horizon by getting to know people from other countries and the possibility to practice their english or spanish. So in order to spend some time with our family the best time is in the afternoon from 3 pm on. We don't want to tell you how many hours you "have to" stay with us. It´s important for us that you just voluntarily want to play with the kids and get to know our family and how we live.
Concerning the household we don't ask for any special help. It ´s just necessary to clean your own room and your bathroom and helping us in the kitchen and dining room in case you are planning to eat with us. We will provide food for you but we will not always cook as the kids usually eat at kindergarden / school.

We live in Vienna in the area of the Wienerwald, which is a quite green part of Vienna. We are living in a house with a garden. We offer a room (about 20 square meters) and a bathroom, which will mainly be used by yourself. You can use our unlimited Internet access.
Supermarkets and a big shopping mall are in walking distance (8 Minutes). With public transport you can be in downtown (Stephansplatz) within 40 Minutes. Vienna is a big city with a lot of interesting sights all reachable within about 40-50 Minutes. Some, like the castle of Schönbrunn, are even closer - it takes you about 25 Minutes to get there.
There are a lot of Museums in Vienna. In case you visit one of those you can also take one of the kids along - if you want to.
Furthermore there are theatres, the opera house and two big concert halls.
If you are very sportive you can go hiking, biking and running in the Vienna Woods or along the Vienna river.
We recommend to you buying a weekly or monthly ticket for the public transportation in Vienna.
