  • Description

    Hi workawayers community!!
    I'm Montse. I'm a teacher of English and live in Lleida , Catalonia (Spain). It's difficult to describe oneself, isn't it? I am a woman who is always with mind and eyes wide open, eager to learn from others, from places, from the outside world. I am very active, fit and sporty.
    My thing is dancing; I have been dancing my whole life: from classical ballet to contemporary dance (which I still practice). I have done courses in any kind of dance: flamenco, ballroom, African, salsa...
    I love travelling, languages and meeting new people, sharing ways of life and keeping "tolerance" as my mind motto. I speak English, Spanish and German. But I grasp some French and Italian, too.
    I have helped via workaway with teaching, gardening, cleaning,farming, cooking, fitness, tourism and I can face any kind of task when given directions :)
    So far I have workawayed in Morocco, Germany , Cyprus and Kenya having had great experiences.
    I have also volunteered in Canada and UK but through a language learning website as a group leader for students.
