**I am currently working at Devonshire Dairy, in Chagford, South England. I`ll be there for two more weeks. Next I would like to continue my journey through England. **
My name is Margo, I'm 21 and I'm from Moscow.
I graduated from the university (law faculty), and now I have a gap-year, which I would like to spend in England, to improve my language and to touch the local life and traditions.
I speak English, but I have a Russian accent, and I can`t always correctly and clear express my thoughts, but I always try to improve my skills and use all possibilities for this. I have a dream to reach an advanced level in English.
Why England? I sincerely respect this country for its achievements, culture and traditions, so I would like to know more about it. This can be done by communicating with local people. That is one of the reasons why I want to learn the language.
I've been in England for 4 times, but this, of course, isnít enough to learn as much as I want. However, I know the history of England quite well, especially the history of 17-19 centuries (Yes, I love History). So, I am always ready and very happy to support the conversation about History, traditions and culture of England. It is very important and interesting for me. In exchange, I can talk about the culture of my country, about cooking, traditions.
I can cook for you Russian national dishes, such as cabbage soup and borsch. Also I know recipes of cakes and breads.
I also love drawing by tempera or pencil, sometimes I use different computer programs for these aims (Photoshop, Illustrator). For example, I can create advertisement, posters and once I even took part in walls decorating. But I guess I need more practice.
I have an experience in gardening, so I can help in a garden.
Also, I know how keep cats, because I have got a cat, which gave birth to many kittens.
During my journey I`ve realized that I can deal with children and seems they like to spend time with me. I know games and stories which could be interesting for them. I can make different weapons for them or toys as well.
I can keep a house and clean rooms.
Most of all I would like to help in a store with local food or in a shop. It would be great practice.
I always want to learn new!
I`m not a smoker and I`m not a vegetarian.
