Hi, my name is Margje and I'm 17 years old. This may I will have my final exams for my high school and after that, I'm graduated. Next school year I don't want to study yet, but I'm planning to take a gap year and work as an au pair in France. Now I'm looking for a nice family I could live with for 6 to 9 months. I would prefer to stay with a family in Paris because I would love to experience the French culture there. Somewhere around the Cote d'Azur would also be very good.
My hobbies are playing field hockey, dance, and act. I work as a tutor at my school, so I help kids between 10 and 16 with their homework and with their tests. I also babysit a lot at different families. The ages I babysit on, are between 1 and 14, so I am experienced with different sort of kids and ages.
I live in Gorinchem, a small town in the center of the Netherlands. I have one older sister of 23 and one older brother of 21. I go to the school Gymnasium Camphusianum in Gorinchem, where I am in the last year now. The subjects I follow are: biology, economics, English, French, old Greek, physics, Dutch, chemistry, mathematics. As you can see, I have a lot of exact subjects and I also want to do something with that in the future.
I would like to be an au pair in France, because I love to play and help kids. I want to teach them things and for them to develop further on. I would love to go to France, because I love the language. The thing is that in my school, they don't teach French that well, so I know the basics but not much. I really want to learn to speak French. I also would like to experience the culture of France. I've been to France often for vacation and the culture always interested me.
