Im a businesswoman, I live in Hanoi with my kind husband and two lovely kids (I adopt my 2 cousins, and I have a maid too)
My daughter - Kitty is 15 year old and my son - Sam is 9 year old
My house is in the new center of Hanoi, so its quite convenient to go anywhere by bus/grab. You can just walk to supermarkets, banks, shops, national cinema center, garden, lakes and park.
Your private room (but shared bathroom) is in my 5 story house, that I especially like my garden on the top of the house. Kitchen is nice and you can cook yourself whenever you like.
Kitty and Sam is so creative and funny. Kitty can speak English, Mandarin and she is starting with French also. She is only 15 year old, but she can help you almost activities in Hanoi, including being a tour guide for you (so volunteers love her so much). Sam is cute and lovely, he is "crazy" with English/French so he always welcome you in your language. Sam is now in his level 3, at primary school, studing French too.
Im 100% sure that you will not want to leave if you have chance to spend time with us
Your help with French lessons for and talking, playing with Sam is highly appreciated. All that I expect from you is that
You can learn Vietnamese cultural via:
Doing some traditional dishes with us, if you like
Eating out with crazy street food
Enjoy meal at my friends house, if have
Go dancing with us
Do yoga with me, often free everyday. And do Zumba fitness too, if you like
Have Kpop (dancing) and swimming with Kitty
And any other activities, that make us (you, Kitty and Sam) be happy and exciting
It's nice if you give us 2-4 hours per day, to help my people with english or French/Mandarin (priority to GIRL who know French or Mandarin but English is a must)
You are free during the day as the kids are at schools (we will help you with traveling and exploring any special parts of Hanoi and near by provinces). You may spend time with my children in the evening and during weekend, as Sam has to go to school everyday and Kitty every morning.
We may have time to eat out, to join the bar/club, to go sightseeing, to go shopping etc together to experience Vietnamese life style and tradition
Sometime, you can visit my friends' house for making cake or cooking Vietnamese dishes
So, whatever you want here in Hanoi, we can share and help, just let us know!
