Hello! We are Savannah and Jhordn in California! We have lived in South Korea, all over the US, and are moving to Africa within the next few years. We have traveled many places throughout the world and hope to continue exploring. We love to travel, love adventure, being bold, and love trying new things. We have 3 cats, no kids. We believe life should be experienced through traveling, learning, and laughing with friends. We are fun, educated, adventurous and open-minded people who are always willing to learn.
We are looking for someone to move in with us for a few months while living in Monterey California USA to help us practice French. We're looking for someone who is happy, open-minded, patient while teaching language skills, and overall fun and personable. We want help with French practice, animal care (cats), cooking lessons, and help with my travel blog!
We will show you some adventures in California such as world class wine tasting in a beautiful coastal town with fantastic seafood. Monterey is known for their fantastic sea animals (sea lions) at the famous aquarium , Fishermans Warf, Cannery Row, sailing, scuba diving, multiple beaches, The Big Sur, surfing, Pebble Beach golfing, whale watching, and wine tasting. Monterey is a tourist destination and one of the most beautiful places in the US with a fun personality, farmers markets, and gorgeous ocean views.
We're a fun couple, love to laugh, positive, friendly, and always up for new adventures! Thank you for viewing our profile. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

We are looking for a female who is over 21 (legal drinking age--there are so many wineries here!) to teach us French. We are at an elementary level in French language so this means we need someone fluent in both English and (NATIVE French) speaker! :-) Please be patient with our learning! :-) We think it will be helpful having some one in-house to practice with every day. Talk with us during breakfast and dinner, watch French movies, and teach us vocabulary. We're looking for someone who can stay for a month or so (possibly more!). Between November 2017 and August 2018.
We have 3 indoor cats so you must be an animal lover! Cooking skills would be a bonus so we could learn to cook some new recipes and experience new food. Helping out around the house will be appreciated--helping with meals, dishes, sweeping, vacuuming, helping with the cats, as well as keeping the bathroom clean so other guests feel comfortable using it. Light housework, nothing crazy.
We are a fun couple with no kids. We love entertaining so you will feel like a welcomed member of the family. We will have family visit from time to time from out of state. You will meet many friends here! We enjoy wine, food, outdoor excursions, and all things fun! We'll show you around California, teach you US/California culture, and help you practice English.
English, some Spanish
As our guest, you will have a private room with a Queen sized bed and space for your belongings. There is adequate closet and drawer space. There is a full bathroom (shower/tub, toilet, sink) for you to share with our occasional guests.
There is no set schedule. There will be approximately 3-4 hours of French practice a day (mostly at breakfast and the evenings). You can explore the area during the day and on weekends.We often go on weekend trips and you're welcome to come along! Public transportation is available and we have bikes you can use as well. Monterey is about 1.5 hours from San Francisco, 5.5 hours from Los Angeles, and 8 hours from Las Vegas.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
California is a large state in the United States and has a mix of cultures. We live in a small coastal town that is a tourist destination. There are people from cultures all over the world here. There are international festivals all the time. Lots of wine vineyards, hiking, sailing, and so much more! The weather is about 70 F degrees year round here. You'll meet people from all over the world and get to stay in one of the most beautiful places in the USA. You'll have opportunities to practice your English skills, learn American cooking, and make friends from all over the world.
