  • Description


    We are a 5 kids family with 3 children (17, 13, and 11) at home and 2 student (22, 20), studying away. Our house is located in a quiet by pleasant subburb of Paris just 10 min by train from Paris center.
    We have becomed quite experienced workawayer hosts, and have had the opportunuity to travel around the world by welcoming workawayers with whom we have had so many interesting cultural exchanges. Our target is to become fluent in english , as well as to improve our german to do so we need to practice with the help of a native english or german volunteer . We will try to forget about french, the time you are with us ! it is a bit challenging (especially for the kids) but if you are dynamic, creativ, and wiling to share our everyday family life , surely we will continue to improve.
    Also we need a help with some house chores.
