    We speak German, English, French, Spanish and starting Romanian.
    We would appreciate an opportunity to learn and practise the Romanian language. My wife (she was a teacher) can offer you lessons or conversation in German, English, or Spanish.

    What else ...

    What do we expect from our volunteers:

    Only non-smokers, no animals.
    We expect nice and polite behaviour and willingness to do some work. Please count on becoming part of the family for the time of your stay!
    We live in a small village without many possibilities for distraction. If you come from a city, you should be able to appreciate the calm and the solitude.
    Because we are not a "big" place we prefer short-time (term) stays: weekend or one week, but we are open for other possibilities.
    The village of Ciocotis is situated about 35 km south from Baia Mare, Maramures region.
