    Dear all

    Chinese- and Math-teachers are urgently required! Will someone help my 13 year old daughter (year 8) with her Maths and Physics, or help my 17 year old daughter (IB Diploma) with Chinese (Mandarin) at a beginners level and/or Math and Physics A-level, it would be very nice.

    We are in urgent need of practical help. In September and October the required help will be on normal workaway conditions (food and accomodation and cultural exchange for practical help).

    The 20-27th of October we are on holiday and need a house sitter for the 4 rabbits and 2 cats and the plants. Food is not included in the house sitting deal, since you don't have to do any work.

    We take corona seriously. So we are careful and will ask you to be careful too, while living with us and follow all officially required quarantine and test restrictions. In general we prefer short time stays up to maximum 3 weeks. We enjoy being hosts, but we also like some quiet periods with privacy in between.

    I am alone with everything in the house, since my 17 year old daughter has broken her right arm and a finger on left hand. Signe on 13 years has just changed from public school to a really high levelled international school and struggle with German, Math and science.

    So we could really need some help for the daily house hold chores and for my daughters' Math homework in IB and year 8, and for my 17 year old daughter's physic reports, since she is not able to write due to her broken arm.
    Any helping hand would be appreciated with big thanks.

    We prefer couples, friends or workawayers, who are very independent, since I don't have very much time to talk and show you around. We have some bikes, you can borrow, but most of the transport will be hiking, public transport, or you can borrow my car (just fill it up again with gas after) and take some sight seeing trips in the area, when I don't use it for work.

    We live in a village called Varnæs in the southern part of Jutland, Denmark, near the German border. There is bus connection to Aabenraa and Sønderborg, and a beautiful landscape with beaches and forests in the back yard.

    It's a good place to hike, if you like the Danish nature. And you can always use us as a base, while you take trips to different places in Denmark or North Germany.

    I am a single mother, who work as a pastor in the Lutheran church. My three daughters are 20, 17 and 13. The eldest has moved to Copenhagen to study. The younger go to business school and international school.

    We are an active and creative family, who like music, hiking, travelling and new experiences. We are nice and flexible.
    We don't have a specific project. But I am not very organised and handy, so I could use some practical help with household tasks, organizing stuff, and improving our home with e.g. woodwork and sewing (My daughters would love to learn some practical and creative skills from you. They are very nice and speaks English).

    For the next period, I will make a kitchen garden and prepare a piece of land with fence, so I can have horses there. I also need a house for the hens and an extra cage for the rabbits. So if you are handy with DIY, I could most certainly need a helping hand with the planning and construction.

    You will be welcomed as a member of the family, while living here. If you want, we will be happy to introduce you to hobbies and activities in the cities nearby, according to your wishes.
    You can be as private as you want. Some might only need a bed, and take care of themselves, when the practical tasks are done. Others might want to be a part of our family and activities.

    We serve all kinds of foods, including vegetarian. As a single mother I don't have much money, so we live on a low budget, but you are welcome to share what is ours, while living with us.

    We are not smokers, and it is not allowed to smoke indoors.

    We have rabbits and cat.

    We look forward to meet you :-)

    Best regards Sidsel (mother), Karen Marie (eldest daughter at home) and Signe (youngest daughter at home)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are a funny, warm and engaged family, who know a lot of people and can help you getting a network here.
    We live close to the nature and to public transports, so you will be able to go out and see a lot of things easily. We can help you finding good tours.

    We are adventurous and would love to learn about your culture, and teach you about ours, if you like. We live close to the German border in a rural area with "typically" Danish families. Through my job and our neighborhood, you will meet the Danish culture. If you want, you are welcome to participate in the activities around the church, where I am a pastor. It is mainly sunday services, but also some teaching, visiting people, meetings etc. Being a Christian is NOT necessary to stay with our family - we are a pastor's family, but we love diversity and the cultural exchange.

    Karen Marie is going to learn Chinese (Mandarin) in IB from summer 2021. She is also very interested in learning Vietnamese. Signe needs to get fluent in German, which is 2nd language in her school. If you study Danish, we would love to help you.

  • Hébergement


    A bed room, where you can withdraw and have some privacy. If you come two, we will find extra mattresses for you, and maybe use one of the living rooms with couches.
    We are quite flexible, as long as you smoke outside and are not extremely noisy. (You are welcome to practise any instrument and invite friends, but not so welcome to play loud music very often, since we like quietness).

    We live in a big old parsonage from 1779 with a huge garden. The gardener from the church is cutting the grass. We live on a road 10 min. walk from the village, where there are busses. We also have a car and can help you with transport for catching trains and busses. When I don't use the car, you can borrow it, but please pay for the fuel. There are many nice places to hike in our area.

    We eat breakfast together at 6.30 am, before the children go to school. Lunch when we are hungry (usually about 12-13 and dinner about 6 pm. We like to make healthy and green food, mainly vegetarian. We are very flexible about your needs. If you want expensive foods, please help with buying foods sometimes, since we live on a low budget.

    My youngest daughter comes home from school about 2-3 pm. My elder daughter about 4 pm. I study and work at home.
