  • Description


    My partner and I have 2 children. Matteo is 6 and Adele 5 years old girl.
    We are looking for a German speaking helper for our children, because we believe of the importance of foreign languages since the children are very small. Moreover my husband worked in Mannheim - Germany for 5 years and Matteo is born there. Now we are stable in Italy but we desire our children speak German. Both of them already understand ans speak German language.

    We need (more important thing) playing with children in German language. Talk a lot with them in German language; Speak speak speak as much as possible to them, ask them about the favourite books, cartoon, heros,sing a German songs, Speak slowly and scan well the words. Get them talking and above all, correct them when they say something wrong and ask to repaet correctly. For doing this you should become a friend for them.
    From 4 pm when they come back from nursery till sleep time where you will read a book into their bedroom.
    Before that, all the day you are free and can do what you want.
    They are still little with strong character and take a lot energy, for this reason we need an energic person, dinamic and motivated who likes children.

    Be creative, invent games, children are small you have to explain them, involve them, and be the driving force in the games. This is the best way to speak the language! When we are at the play ground, play with them, as a friend.
    Be patience and explains them the things. We want to see and feel energy and words as a German radio! :-)
    Matteo love chess, Pokemon Karte, reading books together.. Adele loves dogs, dolls, inventing games

    We are hosting for the children, for their German language so your attention should go to them.
    Major activities:
    • Speak as much as possible to them and the best way is play with them, reading books, riding a bike, play into playground
    • help to change them for Sleep time and help to brush their teeth.
    • if necessary, go get them to the nursery school (rarely)
    • when necessary help with housekeeping: if you like cooking, or for example help with dinner preparations and cleaning up, put and empty on the dishwasher/ washmachine,clean the floor..As a member of the family...but first of all stay with the children! We prefer that you play and speak with them compared to cleaning!
    We really need that you have quality time with them and teach them some German.

    We need help for about 4-5 hours per day. From 16 o'clock till sleep time. Matteo and Adele go in nursery school till 16 o'clock, but if they are sick,in these days we need help for more hours.
    Saturday and Sunday are always free but if you want stay with us, you are welcome.
