Kid's Guide to Living Abroad
Dear Expats in Turkey,
I am writing a book about life abroad from the child's perspective. In the 'Kids' Guide to Living Abroad', children will share their experiences of life abroad. From going to a new school to eating strange foods and from discovering exotic animals to making new friends, the kids will tell all. Besides stories the book will also contain straightforward advice about life abroad from kids who have been there. Because the book will be written by children for children it will be an invaluable tool for kids living or moving abroad.
The 'Kid's Guide to Living Abroad' will contain the stories of about one hundred children. I am wondering if you can help me in my search for children between the ages of eight and twelve that would like to share their stories. Perhaps you can post a message on your website or send an email to families that may be interested. Other suggestions are also welcome. All children will be given a list of subjects and asked to write a story about their chosen subject. Because of privacy reasons, only the child's first name, hometown, and country visited will be used.
Thank you for considering my request and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Regards, Martine Zoer

Hello, I´m helping out some friends to look for a native English Speaker, to talk to a baby (he is almost 1 yr.old) and play with him in English, 3-4 hours each day of the week(except weekends). The baby is an American citizen(born abroad), so the parents want to raise him bilingual. The baby already has a baby-sitter, and there is a cleaner at the house full time too, so this person will only be an ´English conversation buddy´ for the baby. They will pay a salary for this part time job. Please contact me at 533-2844764 if you are interested, or email [email protected] Thank you so much!
