German families in Espoo?

Beitragvon HannaI » Mo Jun 17, 2013 11:37 am

Hello!

We are a Finnish family with two kids, a 3.5 year girl and 6.5 year boy, and have lived in Berlin for the last three years. We are moving back to Espoo in three weeks. The kids speak fluent German (us parents don't and I'm sorry about that :) ) and we would like them to continue speaking the language in Finland so that they won't forget it. I'm looking for families with kids about the same age who would like to help us with their language. Perhaps our kids could come and play with your kids or we could meet in a play ground regularly. I'm very happy if I can return the favor by helping you with anything you might need. I know how difficult it can be living in a foreign country and not speaking the language!

I am also interested in any kind of activities for kids where they would have to use their German. We are also planning on taking a German Au Pair later, when I have found myself a job, but until then we would like to have a German speaking babysitter to look after the kids every now and then and on her/his part support the maintenance of the kids' German language. So any tips and hints are appreciated. :)

I look forward to meeting some German families preferably in Espoo, but anywhere in the capital area is fine. ;)

The German play group is meeting every second Monday 5:30 - 7:00 pm. We are meeting at kasinonranta on Lauttasaari: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=5348. After the summer we will probably meet at the German church again, provided that someone is able to take care of the key regularly.

Hello!

We are a German (mom)-French (dad) family, speaking basically German.
My husband will work here for about 3 years and we live in Espoo since March this year. Our son, Lenny, 3,5 years old, speaks a lot.. a lot and very good German. He misses communicating in German, so we would be more than happy to meet other kids he could communicate with. We also have a 2 months old baby girl, so it´s not always easy to leave home, but I´ll do my best that we and the kids can meet.
here´s my phone number: 00358 45 1536540, just call!
Stefanie
