The Experience

We are a family, living in İzmir (Turkey). We have 2 sons. The bigger one is 9 years old and the little one is only 6 years old. We are looking for a bigger sister to them who knows French and is also talkative (chatterbox) :) Because we hope to improve their language skills. They already speak German, English and French. we just need to improve them. We have already hosted volunteers and teachers before and if you want we could get references.

Before coming I was a bit scered about this trip, but in first days I understood that all is so safety! House was good and comfortable. Ayse was cooking nice the home dishes)) The house located close to Urla (it's like a fishing countryside), I was going there for swimming. Family was kind with me and helped me with everything. About work, boys were nice and focused, for sure sometimes they had small fights and were disagree with me, but they are kids and it's absolutely normal. Usually I had weekend in Wednesday and Thursday, other days we were playing games and study! So cute students ❤️☺️🌟✨

Polina is a very nice girl. She speaks English clearly and very open to learn new stuffs. She teach to kids Russian basic words. She is clean, organized, smart. We recommend her for everyone. Hope to see and host her again. Thanks for everything..



Since the first day they treated me like a family member and I became part of the team. It is amazing how much fun you can have together and how much love there is for each other. Ayşe is caring, supportive and able to help you with everything. I learned a lot and this experience enriched me! PS: it is true what you read in other comments.. Ayşes food is en güzel!

Ayse and her boys were great hosts! Ayse is really experienced so she can anticipate your every need; she is really kind and energetic and always willing to talk, help you plan your travel, etc. Ares and Atlas are two really active boys, always ready to learn something new and play games. I will miss them a lot. The hours are 5 hours a day and the job is to just play with the boys. You guys are such a lovely family, I know that I will be back!

This was my first Worldpackers experience and it would completly amazing! They are so lovely people. They let you feel very comfortable. Ayse cooked the best food and it was lovely to spend time with the children. I helped them by improving their german and they were amazing boys. I miss this family already so much and I felt like a familymember. I can recommend this place to everybody who loves familys and as well the city. Izmir and this family are just amazing! All the best to you and big hugs

Ayse, Ahmet and their kids are very welcoming, they make you feel home from the first seconds. The kids are very energetic and keen to learn more, they are also excited to share with you all what they know, you will learn many things from them. They are very open and you will have many tools/options for teaching. Izmir is a heartwarming city and people there are very kind and friendly
