Region: Boyolali, Central JavaHello, my name is Dave and I am an American living in Central Java in a small village. My son has a dream to go to the USA for school. However his English language skills are well below what he would need to go to Jr. High School in the USA. We would like to give him a chance to achieve his dream and are looking for someone who can provide intensive English lessons to improve his basics (grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, etc.) to bring his language level up at least to a 6th or 7th grade (American) level. If you are wondering why don't I just teach him (which is a fair question), first I don't have the background to teach him the basics especially grammar and secondly we feel it would be easier if a stranger taught him as he would be more open and less intimidated. He is 12 years old and rather shy and sensitive. He would take lessons everyday (minimally 15 hours per week) after his regular school. We are a down to earth family, there is me, the token American and my wife (Sugi) and son (Desckha) who are Indonesian. I am semi-retired (unemployed, too young to touch my pensions) and my wife is just starting a business (Laundry and selling clothes). I lived 10 years in France and speak french (although a little rusty now) and spent 3 years in Singapore. My wife has lived in Singapore and spent most of her life in Bandung and Jakarta. We have both traveled internationally (me more extensively than her) and are settling in the village for a simpler life. Village life is rather simple and far from living in the city (which I prefer). So if you like country living this would be a place for you.
Region: GaliciaWe are a married couple who bought our old house here ten years ago when we were still living and working in Scotland. Our holidays for six years were spent on restoration work and we moved here permanently three years ago. We share our home with a large laid back German Shepherd and two hairy cats. We have very little routine to our lives, preferring to live life spontaneously and like nothing better than to jump on the motorbike and explore this special area of Spain. Consequently, work progresses slowly! Our house has three bedrooms and a large balcony along the front of the house where we tend to eat and socialise. We are both non smokers and try to eat well ( mostly vegetarian) and live healthily without being fanatical. We also have a garden where we attempt to grow our own organic fruit and vegetables.
Region: BurgundyI need trades at this point... so if you have proven skills in carpentry, first fix electrics, lime plastering etc. you would be most welcome. For others, I will be happy to accept you once again when that time returns. You'll be helping restore an historic (15th/17th/19th century) stone townhouse attached to castle battlements which I'm renovating to create a craft gallery and space to teach and share creative workshops, and a couple of studio apartments in the attic for holiday rentals.

Region: British ColumbiaBeautiful secluded horse farm close to the North Thompson river and many great fishing lakes and miles of quiet trails. Nature is exactly what you will find here if you are lucky you might get to see a bear or two and the many bald eagles in the area. We are in a remote area 1.5 hours from Kamloops instead of city life you will find untouched wilderness and the cowboy way of life with the occasional cattle drive. We love a can- do attitude and you will get out of the experience what you put into it. After a day's work we like to unwind with a swim in the nearby lake in the summer and enjoy a cold beer. Sun Peaks Resort is only 1.5 hours away and the snowboarding and skiing there is great. There are also lots of local lakes that are great for ice fishing. Come learn a little of the cowboy way of life in beautiful British Columbia. A basic English understanding is a must for safety reasons as well as insurance. Thank you for your interest, Cheers and good luck in your travels. Michelle
