… went through hard times for years taking care of a helpless family member besides her demanding job and has now decided to use her chance and apply for a sabbatical year also to improve her Spanish.
She does NOT want to be judged as over-qualified! She has the safety to return to her position. She wants a year off and is willing to accept ANY possibility (also au-pair) to work in Spain (preferably Madrid, Barcelona or on the coast) to improve the language and become familiar with country and people. She is aware of the fact that her salary cannot become what she earned and well-prepared to accept other but fair conditions.
