    Description

    We have 2 boys (2011, 2013) and cat and live in the countryside near the forest. We have big house, garden (for play and vegetable) and park :) (sic!). We are familiar with home-schoolign education system (our boys are in this system and they go to alternative kind of school). We love to spend time outdoor (lakes, camps, mountaints, bikes, forests, castles, ski, etc.), we love to meet new people. We have experience in hosting people, or families at our house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Me and my wife know english well, so we can easy communicate with each other. We leave in the countryside. We have big garden (for rest and vegetable) and kind of privat park. Our house is 300 m from the forest. We can also easy visit Wrocław (20-30 min away). We like to spend time outdoor, visit places like lakes, forests, castles; riding bike, etc. We are keeping contact with friends that also invite volounteers and are in home-schooling system. I strongly believe, that You will know our culture well and spend a lovely time .

    You can go for bike trips on the countryside. If you want to travel to some cities etc. we can get you to the train station (3km). Sometimes there is possibility to borrow a car.

    (Apr-July 2023):
    We are currently looking for someone to help build tree houses :) We are talking about simple carpentry and renovation tasks: painting, sanding, screwing, cutting, etc. After the house will be build we also need a help in keeping the houses in order - with longer cooperation, the possibility of sleeping in tree houses a few times :). We also would like the person to be communicative and have a good command of English and be comfortable with children. Additional languages are very welcome.
    (July-Nov 2023): We need a bit of help with tree house maintenance, including very simple cleaning tasks. If someone is also willing to take on help with simple repair work that would be an extra asset.

    Normally, in aside from this activity which is currently a priority, the volunteers who come to us help with taking care and spending some time with kids- 2 boys (2011, 2013). They love to play with others (kids and adulds). (We are in a homeschooling system, but during school-year our kids spend more time in a kind of alternative "school"). It is important for us that kids have contact with English language and others lenguages and cultures. (I am learning Spanish, so I am also happy to visit Spanish speakers too :)) One day in a week we will have more kids at our house - peers and olders - up to 14 y.o. We would like you to help with taking care with them, playing, teaching some would be great.
    We also need some help with cooking, cleaning the house, and some general maintenance.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We live in a big house, where live three families (separate). Our family live in a larger part of this building - we have around 140m2 space. You will have your room on a first flor in our house, near the bathroom, where we have loundry. This batrhoom is technicly for your private use - rest family sleep on first flor.

    On breakfast (around 7:30-9:00) we eat typically musli (granola) or millet groats (with fruits and yogurt) sometimes porridge or sandwithes (chees, ham, tomato, etc.), fried eggs. If you want something else we will buy it :).

    Lunch ("dinner") around 13-16:00 (1-4pm), we like potatoes (regular or fried - french fries), some salad, eggs, pasta, rice, some fried vegetables, pancakes, potato pancakes (yummy). We love soups - different, mostly vegetables. We do not mind to eat meat, but we do not eat it a lot (btw. I love carbonara or scrambled eggs with bacon ;)).

    Diner (we call it supper) 18-20:30 (8-9:30 pm) it is usually lighter - something like for braekfast.

    We like to try different cuisine.

    Can possibly accept pets

    We have cat at our house, so bringing a dog could be a problem - but I think, if a dog is not big and would stay closed in room (sometimes your dog, sometimes our cat :) ) it could work (of course outside is a huge yard - planty of space for run for a dog).
