    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    My name is Elena, originally from the small mountain town of Innsbruck, Austria, based in beautifully artsy and alternative Leipzig, and currently studying at the TCM University in Nanjing.
    I want to use my time off to meet new people, make new experiences, work on my Chinese...
    I love to travel and have had the chance to go to lots of different places all over the world, sometimes volunteering as an English teacher (Nicaragua and Cambodia), sometimes just exploring.
    During my free time, I love to play the cello (though I am convinced I sound best when no-one's around to hear me), to read, to write...

  • What skills do you have?

    Volunteered as an English teacher in different countries, teaching children aged 6 to 14 (CAE Certificate C2)
    volunteered as a pizza baker and bartender at a house project in Leipzig, Germany,
    some barista skills, partly owed to my job as a barista in Germany, but mostly to my coffee-addiction.

    Able to proofread English and German,
    working on my Chinese though my listening skills are, admittedly, not very advanced.

    More than anything: Always willing and happy to learn new things and adapt to the situation
