    They can better there english .i can teach them woodwork if theres anything specific they are interested in or driving a carriage or with horses. If somone can do masonry or stone brickwork they can work with me at that so they might benefit from doing it in a different country if there curious or particularly interested in woodwork I can help out there . In general I always enjoyed other cultures and there has always being a nice atmosphere here with workawayers
