My name is Araí M., I work as a freelance photographer and retoucher. I'm living in Berlin since one year ago. My mother language is Spanish, but I am fluent in English and I am studying German, currently with level A2.2 I love children, and I have a lot of experience with my three nieces who are 6, 5 and 3 years old. I have also noticed with the nephews of my husband of 5 and 9 years, which is one of the most beautiful ways to continue practicing German since the children have fun as a game that I do not know perfect and I can also teach them a little English and Spanish. I have a lot of fun reading books in German, also drawing, painting, going to the spieleplatz and more.
