  • Description


    I’m Federica. My husband, my children and I live in Genova, Italy. I’m running a women clothes shop in the city centre.
    Our two sons Jacopo (13) and Nicolo’ (11), attend the German School of Genova. They attend many after-school activities. such as they both go swimming 5-6 times a week. My husband Corrado runs his own marble workshop. He doesn’t work on Saturdays, therefore he stays with the children.
    We live in the center of Genova. All the places you need to go to such as the German school and the swimming pool are really close.

    On Mondays I do not work, and also on some other days I come home for lunch and I will have a short but lively break with the children and you.
    I like cooking a lot and I also cook many Italian and Ligurian dishes, so I would be happy to cook them while you are with us and maybe when you return you can also cook an Italian dish.
    In the evening my husband and I like to watch a film and you would be very welcome to join us. We are also interested to learn about you, your life experiences and your country/region.

    We have two cats, Tigro and Luna, who are part of the family.Tigro is very cuddly and loves to be stroked. I hope that the candidate likes cats and above all, has no allergies.
    Unfortunately, my German/English is very basic.

    If you need any further information, I will be happy to answer them.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you!

    The candiate can improve her knowledge of the Italian language. There is a rellay nice language school, which I can recommend to you if you are interested. Genova is a beautiful city with many nice places to visit. Another advantage of staying in Genova is that many Italian cities are close by like Firenze, Milano, Torino, Pisa, Siena,..... as well as the beautiful region Cinque Terre. But anyway I would be very glad to give you tips about nice places nearby when you arrive.

  • Help


    Our sons(Jacopo,13, e Nicolò,11) attend the German School in Genova. This is why, I am seeking for a german speaking who may assist and support our sons, helping them with their studies,
    particularly as regards improvements in their knowledge of the German Language.
    She should talk to the children anytime in German. Jacopo has been studying German for 7 years now. However, he still needs some help, especially when writing a text or also when speaking. Nicolò is very curious and likes to tell you many stories and also is interested to learn new things.
    In general, she should take care of the children from 1 pm (when they leave school) until 6 pm, from Monday to Friday; assist them with their German homework. The working hours can also vary a bit, thus be less than 5 hours a day. At the weekends she is free and can explore the area.
    It would be good if you keep your room tidy and clean.
    It would be perfect if you could stay at least a month ....

    We can offer accommodation with private bedroom and bathroom, not large, but spacious for a single person and suitably furnished.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The candidate could spend the weekends with us (if she likes), but obviously there are no problems if she’d prefer to make alternative arrangements with her friends.
    We have a small country house close to a farm owned by an aunt of mine, which we sometimes visit at the weekends.
