We are a nice family (my husband, 59, my daughter, 17, and I, 57, living with our tom cat KAZIM in our house in Hilzingen). Our son (22) has left the house for studying; at weekends and on holidays sometimes he will be at home.
Hilzingen is located in the very south of Germany, near the Swiss border and only a few kilometers away from the Lake of Constance.

Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The main task for the volunteer would be language practice (English) for our daughter. Therefore we are looking for a female native English speaker, preferably from Ireland or the United Kingdom.We can only accept a non smoker volunteer.
You will stay in your own room in our house; you have to share the bathroom with our daughter (and sometimes with our son).
What else ...
There is a good public transport from Hilzingen and you can use our bicycle.
Sometimes we can offer you trips to the Lake of Constance, to Switzerland or the Black Forest.
Look for Hilzingen and Hegau in internet.
