    Description

    Danish family looking for help with cleaning, gardening some cooking and teaching English to our 12 year old daughter 😁 walk our small dog.

    We are a friendly Danish family with 3 children. 13, 20 and 24 years old, all girls. The oldest daughter lives together with her boyfriend and have moved out.
    I, Birgitte Work as a Project Manager in the retail and control the building of new shops and rebuilding and my husband Henrik are self-employed and works with ventilation.
    We live in an old house from 1910 next to Frederiksborg Castle and in walking distance from shopping center with walking Streets and the train station. The train takes 35 minutes directly to Copenhagen Center. The house is with 4 stocks, basement, ground floor, 1 stock and 2 stocks.

    You will get your own room with a lot of space, TV and Wi-Fi.

    The help will be cleaning the house 2 hours pr day 5 days a week, (weekends off), helping in the garden, cooking, teaching violin to Freya(if you know to play the violin :) ) teaching English or French to Freya and help out with homework and other easy things.

    Freya loves to play a game of card or board games and this can also be a way of learning her English.
    She is very well behaved.

    In winter Freya attends figure Ice skating 3 to 4 times a week in a town 25 min drive away. In summer she sails optimist boats in a lake nearby
    The park is very nice to run in or just walk around even at winter time the castle is like a ferrytale.

    We eat all kinds of food and love to try new things, we prefers that you also are able to eat all types of food :) We are a non smoking Family.

    We have a little dog Felix who loves a walk in the park close to the house.
    If you speak English as your 1, this would be great.

    We work during the day from early morning to afternoons. The most of the work you have to help with, will be during the day. The work is between 4 to 5 hours pr day Monday - Friday, so you can explore the surroundings and Copenhagen during weekends, or take a trip to London, Berlin or other during a weekend.

    The family loves to meet new people from all over the world and is looking forward to hear from you. We will supply you with all meals when you are in our house.

    We have only room for 1 workaway.

    Br Birgitte & Henrik
