The challenge: How to prepare our kids to an English speaking school? Anna’s English skills are basically limited to counting from 1 to 20 and saying yes and no. Verena isn’t even capable of that.
– We need an aupair from an English speaking country –
Posted a request on the aupair groups on www.couchsurfing.org and got a few applications from different countries, but all of them didn’t really match our requirements. Posted the job on www.aupair-world.net too. Still no useful applications there.
Got a regular couchsurfing couch-request from an Australian girl with childcare background who was already travelling across Europe for a while. She wants to stay two nights. OK. Fine. Half an hour later got another message from her that she found the aupair posting on the group and wants to stay for a full month. Awesome!
