  • Description

    Description

    Cheerful, international family of 4 with 3 cats is looking for (native) English, French or Spanish speakers. We live in beautiful Bavarian Swabia, near the Danube and near the Swabian Alb, one hour away from Munich, Stuttgart and Nürnberg and one hour away from the Alps. It is a perfect basis for discovering the South of Germany.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The mum is a social scientist and a behavioral scientist. She is originally from the Netherlands. The family dad is a computer scientist and a passionate voluntary firefighter. Our boys are 16 and 14 and both attend grammar school. We like traveling and we like learning languages. If you want to improve your German and would like to discover Germany you will like it here. The father is an enthousiastic hobby cook and would like to cook with you.

    Our children both visit grammar school and we don't need "babysitters" anymore, but we would appreciate a hand around the house (cook lunch, go foodshopping, garden, etc). The children are both good swimmers, they like to go on biketours and they play soccer, watch a film and play games etc. The boys are quite independent and you will have plenty of time to travel or study. It is also an ideal area for cycling (Danube bicycle path) and hiking.

    The eldest son studies Latin and English in school. The youngest son has French and English as foreign languages. He is also studying Spanish as his fifth language (beginner's level, but he understands a lot) He is a bit dyslectic so in order to have decent grades he has to be very good orally.

    It would be great if you could come over for a few weeks or months, discover the south of Germany and speak English or French with our boys, or help the older one with Latin (level B1/B2). I have just refreshed my Spanish and I am in the middle of a B1 course. I would love to practice.

    The children can communicate in German, English (B2) and Dutch (B1/B2). The little one speaks French (about A2/B1) and a bit of Spanish.

    We are looking forward to meeting you!
