  • Description

    I'm happy whenever I can learn something new, be it a language, a science, an art form or a household skill. I'm in Japan to learn its language and get to know its culture, since both are very different to what I'm used to and absolutely fascinating.

  • More details about your skills

    I'm a high school graduate from Germany taking a gap year before starting university. I'm fluent in English and speak French well enough to converse, and I've started Japanese.
    My skills include cleaning, cooking and running a household, and some sewing. I've minded children before and tutored them in English and French, and I sing, paint and cycle in my free time. Additionally, I've helped in our garden at home and with our DIY projects around the house (such as setting up our projector and screen, building a garden shed etc.)
    I had a great time working at a Ski Lodge in Nagano over the winter.
