Otázky k prodloužení

7. května 2012 v 17:01
V týdnu mi přišel z AuPairCare seznam otázek, které jsem musela vyplnit a podle kterých mi sestrojí profil. Tento profil bude viditelný pro host families.
V sobotu jsem všechny otázky konečně dokončila. Dala jsem si na tom záležet, protože to bude moje visitka a šance najít svou novou HF. Řekla jsem si, že sem všechny ty otázy zkopírkuji, ať se na to můžou au pair, které plánují prodloužit mknout.
Jinak mě tam zaskočila otázka, jestli mi moje HF napsala nebo je ochotna napsat doporučující dopis. Trochu jsem se toho zalekla, protože jsem netušila co mi na to HM řekne. Naše situace je celkem komická. Já je nemám ráda a myslím, že oni mě taky ne (teda kromě dětí). Navzájemtedy o sobě víme, že se nemáme rádi, ale vůbec to před sebou nedáváme najevo. Kdyby k nám přišel nějaký cizí člověk, tak by řekl, že jsme jedna velá šťastný rodinaSmějící se
No tak jsem se ji teda zeptala, jestli by mi ten dopis mohla napsal, že by mi to fakt pomohlo a ona že jo, že klidně. Uff, měla jsem celkem strach co tam napíše, ale naprosto v klidu. Nebyla nějak přehnaně milá, jen tam napsala co děláme s dětma za aktivity, že mám skvělou angličtinu a že mě děti mají moc rádi. Ale oni i tohle stačí, protože jsem pak zjistila, že tento dopis se k budoucím host families vůbec nedostane. Je to prý jen pro agenturu, aby zjistili že mám ty správné důvody k prodloužení. Nechápu! Smějící se
Takže jsem všechny otázky krásně vyplnila, host mum poslala dopis a teď už jen čekat. Do matchingu se dostanu 22.května!!! Tak prosím držte palce!!! No a tady už jsou ty slíbené otázky.

“Adoro viaggiare in Segway”. Il modo migliore per cadere in amore con Verona in nessun tempo!
Quando si dispone di un breve tempo a coprire una citta, questo e un ottimo modo per farlo. Mi e piaciuto molto il nostro tour e guida. L'audio e stato un po' difficile, ma la guida li ha tenuti lavorando. Quando il suo caldo, questo e un ottimo modo per andare in giro e stare un po' fredda. Verona e una citta facile accesso per segway intorno. Abbiamo visto tutti i principali siti e ci hanno dato una buona sensazione per il layout della citta. Siamo stati in grado di tornare a pochi posti il giorno successivo per un po' di tempo.
