    *** ASAP : HELP NEEDED ON TEACHING ENGLISH TO OUR LITTLE HOMESCHOOLED GIRL ***

    Hello,
    We are a family of 3, with a 6-and-half-year old little girl.
    We have travelled around the world for many months and at the moment need to stay in France for a while.

    Since 2019, we have openned an organic food store, so we are very well concerned about healthy eating and environemental preservation.
    We live in a village called Ungersheim, which is very much involved in ecological projects such as eco-wooden houses, organic food production, sustainable energies...

    Ungersheim is located in Alsace which is a great region to discover :
    - 25 minutes to Mulhouse
    - 25 minutes to Colmar
    - 60 minutes to Strasbourg
    - 45 minutes to Bâle (Basel) in Switzerland
    - 30 minutes to Germany

    We are well aware of the current situation, but we think maybe travellers still come in France, looking for a nice place to stay at.
    From our point of view, it is always the right moment to host travellers in exchange with conversational moments with us (few hours a week) to help us teach english to our daughter to improve her english skills as we will need this to go travel again in the future.
    This means, we will look for fluent english-speakers, willing to share their language, in exchange with french practice !
    If you travel with a same-age child, come and meet us ☺️

    We really love to meet people from various countries and if you love to cook, this is going to be a great experience also !

    We have previously hosted an au pair. This was a great experience and we will surely do it again in the future, but right now, we don't need much babysitting : when our girl stays at home, one of us stays with her.
    We will surely need company for her while working from home and in case we both have to go to the store.

    Since we work from home, and our girl plays all day... we don't have much time to keep the house tidy, so some help on this point would be greatly appreciated.

    Duration : about 1-12 months +/- for a girl/woman travelling alone or with a child, depending on your project.


    Please contact us for any further information.

    Help

    First of all, we look for people to help us teaching english to our daughter. No need to be a teacher, just speaking fluent english and being willing to spend time talking and platine with her/us.

    Then, as a member of the house, since we work a lot and our girl plays all day (!!), some help with the housework will be appreciated.
