Suite à votre annonce, je me permets de vous écrire afin de vous faire par de mon grand interêt pour cette garde. Je suis actuellement en France, cependant étant très intéressée par votre annonce je suis prête à me déplacer si mon profil vous convient,

Bien cordialement

I hope this finds you well. I am writing to express my interest in the posted nanny position. As a bilingual French and English speaker, with a background in education and a member of the Seventh day Adventist church, I believe I meet the unique requirements of the role.

I have served as a French and Music teacher in Botswana and Zimbabwe, where my bilingual skills allowed me to effectively communicate and instill a passion for language and music in my students. These experiences have honed my presentation and communication abilities, and have also demonstrated my capacity to adapt to diverse cultural contexts.

Furthermore, I have spent time living in France and the Reunion Islands, which has enriched my understanding of the French language and culture, beyond the theoretical aspects. I am confident that these experiences would enable me to foster a multilingual and multicultural environment for your family.

Being a sporty and dynamic individual, I also enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities, which aligns with your requirement for a nanny with an outdoorsy nature. Additionally, my proficiency in playing the piano can add a musical facet to the educational and recreational activities for your children.

I currently hold a driving license and I am willing and to take steps to convert it to an international one if necessary. As for the traveling aspect of the job, I have always enjoyed traveling and adapting to new environments, and I am more than ready to travel as needed.

Kindly find attached the link to my resume for more details about my experiences and skills.

I am eager for the opportunity to further discuss my suitability for the position at your earliest convenience.

Best Regards,
Definite Nyoni
