    Female Explorer Scout looking for Home Hospitality or Exchange - Summer 2013

    Hi All

    I've been asked by a 16 year old Austrian Explorer Scout to try and find her a Scouting family she could stay with in the UK to improve her English pronunciation during this coming summer. She is active in Scouting in her small town and attended the Swedish Jamboree in 2011. She speaks good English, with over 6 years of study, but as she is aiming to become an English Teacher she hopes to improve it and experience the British way of life and maybe also some UK Scouting opportunity. She has her holidays between July 6th and September 9th.

    She has experience in babysitting (and both her parents are doctors) and she is willing to help with the household chores. Her family would pay for board and lodging during her stay and be willing to reciprocate the following summer, if required.

    PM me for details or offers.

    Thanks

    Has she thought about spending the summer at a uk scout campsite being service crew? not the UK way of life but can help with English and Scouting.

    Rule 66. A map and compass offers no protection against getting horribly lost.

    Understood marcush - but her parents would prefer her staying with a Scouting family....who could of course be wardens/staff at a UK Scout Campsite! :-)

    Most have crew huts of sorts, which aren't dissimilar to a house. just a large one.

    No idea Skipper - I'll ask... :-) Any clues whereabouts? [That will probably be her next question..]
