Has anyone taken a small job in a foreign country for a couple of weeks? Just to practise the language, get work experience, have fun, earn a bit...I'd like to do that, next summer, just go to Germany for a short while. But would anyone be interested in hiring a 17 year who speaks bad German (doing it for AS, getting speaking practise is my reason for going, otherwise I'd go to Holland), and would I need to get any sort of license? My dad said it's the EU so it'll be fine. The legal working age is lower than in England but at 17 it shouldn't be too much of a problem anyway.
Would they be interested in hiring a foreign student, wouldn't they rather give the job to someone local, and how would I go about asking for a job?
Thank you so much if you reply to this and read it, I'm searching around the internet but it's a bit hard to find all the info. Oh and I'd stay in a hostel and stuff, so there's be a temporary address of some kind.

ask in the german learners thread
there are a couple of resident german(s)/ophiles
First thoughts would be that it would be better to get tuition from Goethe or something like that, as there is probably a chance that you might end up not getting a job in which you need to speak German. The kind of jobs your looking at, aswell, if they are not specially tailored to exchange students, may be populated by Turks speaking Turkish
may be wrong, though

Okay, thanks for the idea. I'm looking into it.
Wow, just looked at the prices. Over 1000 euros! Maybe not afterall.
But thanks anyway
