My next destination:Kraków, Poland - from Feb 2022 until Feb 2022 View all
Hello! My name is Liam, I'm 19 years old and I currently live in Belgium. In my childhood I lived in Belgium, in Poland and in the United States and I believe this is where my love for travelling and foreign languages/cultures began.
At the moment I'm studying Applied Linguistics (languages: Dutch, French and English) at the KU Leuven in Brussels. In high school I mainly studied classical languages (Latin and Greek), but I also studied music (violin) for one year as an extension of my high school studies.
During the summer of 2021 I travelled to Corfu, Greece for two months to work as a Kids Club Animator at a TUI Resort and it was such a wonderful experience. I loved the combination of travelling and caring for children. Being able to travel again after such a long time reminded me that I cannot live without travelling and meeting new people.
In the summer of 2022 I really want to travel throughout Europe. I am a polyglot so I will be happy to learn your language - if I don't already know it ;) - and I am very open minded, positive and social. Caring for (young) children, cooking various meals and domestic chores are my best qualities and I am happy to help in any (small) household projects as well.
I can't wait to hear from you, so I can start making new experiences and meeting new people around the world.

More details about your skills
My main skills can be divided into two areas: languages and music.
Languages: teaching Dutch, English and French and how to learn foreign languages.
Music: teaching violin, piano and basic music theory.
Due to prior (working) experiences I am also able to work in (group) child care and (international) hospitality.
More details about my language interests
I have a big passion for foreign languages and cultures. My native languages are Dutch (I live in Belgium) and English (I lived in the USA as a child). I am quite fluent in French (since I live in Belgium) and the other languages that I am confident in are Spanish and Italian. I am more or less a beginner in Portuguese and Russian and and I have dabbled in multiple languages such as Swedish, Arabic and Mandarin Chinese.
What else ...
I have always had a strong desire to travel and learn about other cultures. Since I was little, my family and I have travelled around the world, but we always stayed in resorts/hotels, had guides, rented cars etc., so I never got to experience the countries we went to first hand. With WORKAWAY I would like to explore the world through my own eyes and the eyes of the natives by learning new skills, foreign languages and different cultures.
