We are both gratefully enjoying the fruits of 40 years of work (Andrea as a language teacher, Frans as IT specialist). We live in a beautiful environment in Oman, leading a life as it should be.
Our house is big, surrounded by a vegetable garden bordering a golf course with 10 minute walk to the sea. We live a very healthy, sustainable life, trying to honor nature. Growing and cooking own vegetables is time-consuming, and I would like to have help with that. I am also trying to learn more about the plants that grow under Omani conditions and make notes about these plants.
We speak English, German, Dutch, French, Finnish, some Russian, Arabic, and want to improve our very basic Spanish and Portuguese. I am still full-blood language teacher for German and English with loads of material and can help with learning English or German.
You would have your own privacy in our house. You would be asked to help for about 2 hours in the morning (6 – 8am) in the garden and thereafter for helping to prepare one meal together with me. (we do intermittent fasting with our food window between 10 am and 6pm). We eat mainly vegetables, but also fish we catch ourselves.
Frans is doing many repairs, also bicycles, goes fishing and is passionate about golf. We hike a lot in the nearby mountains.
You could ask for references about me with former trainees that I supervised in my former job.
