We are a family with 4 homeschooled children (Soline 7, Louise 9, Martin 11 and Alexandre 12 years). We are living in a small village 45 minutes away from Brussels (Brabant Wallon). My husband works away from home 4 days a week. Our life is made by everyday life : cooking, gardening, bricolage, games, walks in the wood, visits, meeting with others homeschooled families,...
Babysitting / child care
The exchange could be an opportunity to share the life of unschooled children, and to practice French too.
Furthermore, our village is beautiful and the hilly woods are enjoyed for walking and biking.
We are mainly looking for someone who could speak English with the children (and with me also :-) ), so they can learn the basic of this language with a native speaker. It could be for example by mean of cooking with the children, or playing with them, while speaking English. But we are not expecting a formal course.
We would like at the same time some help to take care of the children or to garden with me (gardening is nicer with someone).
French - some Engish - some Spanish
You will share our home and have a private sleeping room (but shared bathroom). We will take our meals all together, and you will be part of the family.
There is a train station 300 meters away from our house. So different places are easily reachable from here (45 minutes from Brussels,...).
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week
