Letter to the family

Hi, my name is Emily, I am a 21 year old student of German and Spanish at Newcastle University, UK. Due to Covid-19 I had to suspend a year of university, so to help maintain my languages up I would love the opportunity to Au Pair with a German speaking family!

What I can offer you:
My work experience includes 3 years as a part-time children's swimming teacher, 5 months as a children's English teacher in Peru, and 3 months as a Spanish language assistant in a UK secondary school. I have lots of experience working with children of all ages and experience of teaching English and Spanish as foreign languages in both formal and informal environments. Others describe me as hardworking and conscientious, I hope these are traits I can bring to your family.

What I am looking for:
I am looking for a family to host me for 2-4 months. I would like a family who would like me to get involved in family life, and to practise my German. It is important that you can speak German with me and that I will have some time to attend a language school, but I am very happy to interact with your children in English. Access to a big city and good public transport would be a big benefit as I would love to explore my new area in my free time. I would prefer jobs that don't involve driving.

About me:
I love travel, the outdoors, learning languages, and working with kids of all ages! I care about equality and social justice and I spend time volunteering for charities and taking part in campaigns in order to help others. I currently volunteer one evening per week as an online English teacher for a charity in Peru. I also like hiking and regularly visit the national park near my city in the UK.
I study Spanish and German at university and was due to be studying abroad in 2020/21. As travel has been difficult this year I decided to suspend a year of university and my study abroad will begin in Sept 21. Until then I have a free year so I want to travel and maintain my languages beginning in January. I would like to au pair in Germany/Austria for 2-4 months so that I have time to focus on my Spanish later in the year before my return to study.
