    ** Looking for a workaway who speaks English and/or Spanish but not French, to practice the language at home, especially with the children."**

    We are a family with two kids of 7 and 13 years old. We live in a large quiet house with a garden, an aboveground pool, at 10 minute drive from Dijon (Burgundy), in a small village. We have a very quiet little dog, a lovely cat and hens.

    The village is close to a hilly wood, very pleasant to walk, run or mountain biking. There is a bus line that goes to Dijon several times an hour.

    We love and practice a lot of outdoor sports: XC running (a lot), mountain biking, cycling, swimming, diving, roller-skating, skiing, triathlon ... with our friends. We enjoy to go on races!

    My job is to develop an in line skating club (events, communication ...), I love it! My husband works in computer security and the protection of data.

    I like to spend time cooking healthily with organic and local products . I'm always putting the bazaar in the kitchen, listening music and dancing! We try to reduce our environmental impact and limit our consumption (packaging, energy, water ...). We have (or trying to a verry little vegetable garden; Also Cherry, plum, apples and fig trees.

    I like to enjoy the morning, so I get up early enough ... and sleep early too!
    I do not like sophisticated things, shopping malls, fast-food, perfume, intensive agriculture, and inactivity. Our family is very active, I am always busy doing lots of things, and I like people who are also active, sporty and talkative !

    My husband is muuuuch calmer than me, he loves tinkering with computers, always examine new technologies, learn and train in new things, and in the evening watching movies or documentaries in English (he worked for 4 years in england).

    The region is very paceful, beautiful and there are many tourists who appreciate the good things: wine, food, architecture, old stones, nature, small picturesque villages and their stories ... the city of Dijon is young and dynamic with lots of students and lots of things to do!

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    You will be immersed in the life of our French traditional family, we can share our experiences, talking, cooking, sport practice, gardening, listening music... we really enjoyed to have a workaway at home, it's a kind of travell for us!

    So far we have always "adopted" our workaways, they have really been a member of the family! We have always been sad at the time of separation!

    We like to discover your country, your traditions, your convictions, your specialties, your hobbies ... each exchange is unique! So we like talkative people :-)

    We are tolerant of diets, I cook mainly vegetables and legumes, but also meat (for lunch), fish, dairy products, eggs ... but you are free to eat or not (without having to to justify!).

    However I must warn you that in September and October I have so much work that I am not at home much, but my husband is more present!

  • Ajuda


    3 kinds of help :

    1- a person to do DIY jobs in the house (painting, gardening...), and from time to time to look after the children : girl or boy. March, April or May.

    2- Someone who loves children, and who doesn't speak French, but english and/or spanish, to practice the language at home, especially with the children ; help in the house and a homework. Between 3 weeks and 2 months, between November and March.

    3- a person to take care of the children and help in the house and with homeworks : from mid-June to mid-July and from the end of August to mid-Ocotber (two workaways together in september/october).

    For the mission to take care of the children :

    - Getting them ready on the morning, bring the younger to school, pick her up in the afternoon. Helping with homework, especially with the older who doesn't always want to work^^

    - Taking them to their leisure activities (so driving licence wold be good).

    - Taking care of them on wednesdays : homework and then playing, cooking, walking, gardening... a lot of activities to do with them! There is no school on wednesday (only on the mornig for our older daughter).
    Grandparents are also available to take the children home sometimes, if this is convenient for you.

    - It could be also some times to help at home with cooking, cleaning, laundry, helping in the garden and for the pets, picking cherries (june) and plums (october), looking after the chickens...

    Especially in September and October because I have a looooot of work, and for this reason I prefer to have 2 workaways to share the work.

    It is imperative to speak French fairly well, to love children and have experience with chrildren. Drving license is a real benefit.

    3 tou 5 hours a day + wednesday (depending on the availability of the grandparents )

    Minimum 3 weeks.
