Área: ManabíOur goal is to encourage interaction between different cultures, to expand language skills, and to create a vibrant community between English and Spanish speakers in Puerto Lopez. Puerto Lopez, a quiet fishing town, with an international tourist crowd. Our place is a beautiful property, right on the beach. The open air café seats about 20 people, facing the ocean. Tutoring takes place in the patio classroom above, and is equipped with a map, computer and language teaching resources. Spanish learners are generally visitors, studying Spanish while on vacation (1 week to 8 weeks.) English-learners are generally residents of Puerto Lopez.
Área: CharenteWe are a young German-Italian couple who now nearly three years ago moved onto an old farm in South-West France. Our dream: we want to be self-sufficient and run a small riding stable for classical dressage. We chose the farm, because it is secluded and sourrounded by 30 hectars of meadows and woods, close to the lovely ancient town of Angouleme (10 min.), a cycle ride to the charente river for canoing, swimming and fishing, 1 hour from the sea and of course it is right next to the Cognac region! It is beautiful, but a lot of work ... (the extent of which we did not realise when setting out): in the 2 years, with the help from many volunteers, family and friends, we have turned most of the main house into a cozy home using natural building materials such as hemp and clay, made our own hay to get our horses through winter, fenced the fields, planted some hedges and trees, cut down a whole invasive bamboo forest, made our own fire wood, did a lot of weeding of toxic plants by hand and tried to integrate as much as possible into the small nearby village... So far we have not opened the stable to outside riders yet, as we are still in the middle of building. We hope to finish most of that by August 2013 and will be opening up then... Do you see yourself helping with the building and gardening? Volunteers will be accomodated in a double room in the main house and food is provided. You would be working 6 hours work per day, 5 days per week. Weekends are off.... If you are interested please write us an Email.
