    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have had heaps of experience in helping out with English practise for those who have English as their second language
    I have had over 60 visitors from all parts of the world,so I enjoy very much listening to the stories & cultural differences between us & your home country & as much as I enjoy showing off my homeland, I also enjoy hearing of their experiences, customs & stories told of their own homeland !
    I have had heaps of practice in helping travellers find long term accommodation , job assistance & generally helping them find their feet for those travellers who want a longer stay in this fabulous city of Melbourne

    We will include time to sight see around my area if you would like, or I can provide information & suggestions on what to see, if you would prefer to do it alone , your call !

    Help

    Recovering from recent hip surgery 2 months ago, I am in need of minimum care with a few house chores , but becoming more capable every day , however it would be nice for some assistance during the day , mostly just for meal preparation & company, which would then take the pressure off my present 2 live in carers while they are at work during the day. With minimum help being required , this would leave you with heaps of personal time off to explore this green & leafy environment of clean, fresh air , bike & walking tracks close to the house, near new road bike & a mountain bike as well, complete with lights & helmet for your use .
    I would particularly welcome someone with carpentry skills to rebuild my deteriorating pergola, with most replacement parts on site, but no skilled workers to use them , do you have this talent ?
