I am Mandy, 40 years old, married and mother of two sons. Although we are a super family and like to travel together I need to do an experience on my own. I want to improve my English pronunciation and grammar to teach English correctly in primary schools. I would be glad to have the opportunity to combine work and acquiring language & culture awareness.

Helping with Tourists
In my previous jobs I worked always in a team and got in touch with different characters. I had also to deal with customers and now studying at a university requires also to be open-minded. As a mother my organisation skills developed over the years. I am interested in other cultures, stories, lifestyles and so on. My family and I adore to travel. Maybe I cannot point with some special skills or DIY projects but I am willingly to help and learn. My life is structured through an early wake up, struggling to get a 16 and 11 year old to school, preparing for university, studying, doing my small job for a professor, cleaning the house, doing the laundry, cooking, and caring for our small garden. Over the week I am alone with our sons as my husband is always away on a job. So I can get along and need to sort out what to do first. As I usually plan the day, plan the meals, explain the whole life to my children, and so on, I would be happy, if someone instructs me. I can come with new ideas but can also be quiet and do my job. My last hosts said I was a sunshine on rainy days and I have a can do/will do attitude….
fluently German, fluently English (but far away from perfect), a bit Spanish and French
I am studying to become a teacher for primary schools. To teach English I need to improve my language skills and awareness. I am interested in social structures, daily life in your country, and culture.

I am on a seafood diet - I eat everything I see :-)
