Hi, we are Aline and Said. We are from Germany and Spain and we met each other during our volunteering service in England last year. We lived and worked there for one year at one of the Camphill communities called «The Grange Village», based on the Rudolf Steiner’s education.
The community supports people with learning disabilities and enables them to be independent and to have a fulfilling live through education (study groups, theater, eurythmy, etc.),work and a community living. We have worked in different workshops with them, in a biodynamic garden, pottery, bakery, farm, weavery, estate/maintenance, crafts and coffee bar. They were proper workshop so through this experience we achieved skills in all these fields, not just the social skills but also the practical competencies.
In continuity with our will of traveling, learning and sharing we are searching for a new project in France, both of as always wanted to learn french and live for a while in this country.
Said studied Arabic philology at the University of Barcelona and a course of digital marketing. He finished high school and wants to study primary education. Aline finished high school and is thinking about studying social work or primary education as well, but before that we want to travel and learn through non formal education. We believe that one can’t just learn indoors.
We both like to spent our free time outside, exploring the surroundings, but also reading, doing crafts or playing chess.
What about our french? Our understanding is quite good, but we have some difficulties to speak. We just need few weeks to get again into the language. Both are currently studying it. Said has learned french in Morocco for two years and I always spent my holidays in France, I studied it for four years at school, so I have basic knowledge.

- Cooking/ shopping/ cleaning
- Crafts and decoration
-Digital marketing and fotography
- General maintenance: Painting, bricolage, electricity, plumber, etc.
- Languages: we are happy to teach the languages we know.
- childcare because of our siblings and nieces/ nephews
