  • Description


    Hi! (vaccinated) workawayers are welcome again!

    We would like to welcome you as part of our family and share/exchange our languages, cultures and talents. Hier a list, you don't have to do all :)

    Teaching languages: do you have experience with smart children? would you like to teach your language to my children by playing and sharing with them? Chinese, French, Italian and English speakers are welcome

    Playing/teaching music/singing and Arts: my kids love music. They play Piano and Recorder. We have a piano and other instruments at home. They also love drawing and painting.

    Sports/Chess: My children have a lot of energy and love swimming, playing football/soccer, riding bicycles, doing gymnastics and dancing. Would you like to train and play with them? Also they like Chess. To calm down at the end of the day it could be great if they learn to meditate or yoga.

    Gardening: help in the garden organizing it and collecting the leaves. We would like to enjoy again time together and barbecue :)

    Household chores

    Greenhouse and composting: We care about the environment and we try to eat healthy food, why not by creating our own organic garden? Would you like and be able to be in charge of this project?

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We welcome open, respectful, proactive, responsible and solutions-oriented guests that love a warm family environment. We value family, friendships, education, multiculturalism, protecting the environment and nature. We hope to share that with you!

    Living in Hannover is to be immersed in a traditional German cultural and be exposed to a pure German language (no dialect). You will get the chance to interact with the community. Also, the experience will help you to get a grasp on the German culture and system.

    Beautiful cities such as Hamburg, Frankfurt, and Berlin are just two hours away. Hannover is well known for the international fairs. Public transportation is pretty good, we have a bus and a train station close by. By train, you are in 12 Minutes in Hannover central station and city center, from there you can go to any city within Germany and Europe.

    After reading our profile, if you feel you would be a good fit then we will be happy to receive a message from you indicating when would you like to come and for how long. Also, we would like to know your motivation for wanting to come over to Germany and to our place.

    We are a family of four, my daughter is eleven years old and my son is nine years old. My children are multilingual German-Spanish-English and love languages. The Family language is German. Your communication language with the children will be basically English (or any other still to learn).

    The father Andreas (German) is an Engineer, he speaks German and English and Mom Vanessa (originally from Peru) is an MBA and speaks German, English, Spanish and a bit of Portuguese and Italian. Vanessa was almost all over the world on business trips and/or vacation. By welcoming Workawayers we bring the world to us and to our children. We also love traveling. My children love Workawayers that play with them and teach them about their country's language and culture. We have received over 30 workawayers by now and we are happy to be in contact still with them. They are missed by my kids. They also contributed to our family. For instance, my kids learned English, we incorporated new meals in our daily menu, we have now beautiful plants to look at, a wonderful organized place and just recently a wood garden house.

    As we get to know each other, we learn what the motivation and abilities of the volunteers are. We share information and experiences regarding the German culture, system, and language as well as from the world.

    If you are a self-motivated, open and willing to exchange person as well as a responsible and respectful guest, you are very welcome to our family!
    We will be happy to hear from you if you would like to expand your life skill set and make a contribution to our family and place. Also, we welcome workawayers who will proactively help around our house. Apart from being in charge of any project or projects mentioned above, your help in preparing the meals and cleaning of the common areas is also expected as an adult family member. Being immersed in the German culture is being disciplined and efficient at whatever you do. That's German culture and we would like guests inspired by that as our lives, home and schedules run accordingly. We keep the extended fun, chatting and play time for the late afternoons/evenings at dinner time :)

    Please note,
    We don't want our children to be unrespectful by using the mobile phone during the meals, so do not teach them that by doing it yourself.
    We expect the bathroom you use is fully cleaned at least once a week and that you leave everything clean and tidy after you use it. Also, I thought it goes without saying, however; it was not for all cases. You should plan to leave the bathroom and the room you used clean.
