Area: HerediaWe are promoters of Language for global and social relevancy. We teach in a relaxed environment through social media, day to day living experience, and topical discussions. Our methods are not typical of the average class room experience, and our style is eclectic.
Area: FinnmarkAt a lovely place, directly near the Varangerfjord in the municipality of Nesseby in Norway (Gorgnetak) I run a business as an agent for Norway and Finland concerning handmade Sami products. My name is Monique, I am 50 years old and born in The Netherlands. I am easy going, love people and enjoy life to the fullest! Gorgnetak is a beautiful place if you like the pure nature. There is electricity but no running water (that means no toilet or shower) but we manage that in other ways so no worries. You can hike and do some fishing over here. The nearest place with a supermarket, a bar and a restaurant is 8 km. The villages Tana and Vadsö are 40 km away. There are two airports in the neighbourhood: Vadsö and Kirkenes. There is a bus from both airports that stops in Varangerbotn three times a day near the best mediterranean restaurant you can find in the area. If you want to know what's going on in the Varangerbotn/Nesseby area, please check this website: varjjat.org/wp/
Area: BavariaDear Working Travelers. My name is Astrid and I´m married with two boys aged 16 and 17. We live in a small village, approx. 20 min. by car to Rosenheim, 15 min. to the nearest ski resort and 15 min. to the famous lake Chiemsee, which is very attractive to tourists. We want to practice and improve our English skills while talking with a guest from an English speaking country. On the other hand we can show you our traditional Bavarian way of life. My younger boy does ‘plattl´n’ (a Bavarian style of dance) and he is a Drummer, playing in a school band and a big Brass Music band. My older one likes training and playing football in the lower league. Both will be happy if you join them in their free time activities which includes skiing, ice hockey in a team, hiking and mountain biking. We would be pleased if you could stay for a longer period.
