Language practice

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionOur home with garden is near Frankfurt, exact 9 minutes train ride to Frankfurt town centre. There are lakes to swim, forest to bike and jog. Two swimming pools nearby. It is a quite residential area, in walking distance to amenities. We are past middle age married couple with a very academic teenage girl. You will have a loft apartment (living room, single bed, private bathroom). Our offer is only for female students. There isn't much work to do, mostly language exchange during school holidays. We are happy if you can tidy our small backyard garden or help with household. You are expected to practice one (or more) of the following languages: English, French, Italian, Mandarin, Turkish. Please note that you must be a native or near native English or French speaker since my daughter is already fluent in both. She is B1 level in Italian, A2 level in Mandarin.
