    Description

    We are a family of four: a couple of 35 and 39 years old with a daughter who studies everything in English and is 5 years old and a son of 19 months.
    As parents, we love to be with our little girl and boy, teaching and learning with them. We love playing games, taking them to the play ground, park and spending as much time as possible with them.
    Our aim is to improve our English and to continue our daughter's development in English over the summer. Of course, never more than 5 hours per day and five days per week (weekends free is the first idea). Feel free to say another options, because we are open to speak about everything.
    We need a person who will be with us during the second part of june (19nd of june to 29th of june) to help us with Izargi while we are working (with Adei only if he gets sick and he can't go to his school) and from then on, all the family together with you as a part of our family 😊 (more or less u til 19th of july)

    Aprt frkm that we are thinking about having another person with us during the last days of august (still on vacations), and first of september (maybe both working already).

    English native speaker girl(s) for:
    - 19 June - 19 July (more or less).

    We are four people family: couple of 34 and 38 years old and our daughter (4 years old, Izargi), and our son (7 months, Adei).
    We are looking for a native English speaking girl, who talks to us in English while Izargi, our daughter, is awake (OPOL). The main idea is to play (at home, in the beach...), sing, read stories, dance, do arty things, cook... with Izargi and speak to Adei. At least, look for excuses to speak with Izargi in English, and don´t be shy about doing little girls things: feel free to be a little girl again! ;)

    We have to separate two different periods, because of our organization needs; but we would like to be both of them with the same person (full month one person with us, buf it hasn't to be the same person also for september):

    June-July

    During the first period, parents will be working, so that we need someone to be with Izargi. After 29th of june, will be different. Our idea is to spend the mornings together, all four of us on holiday and of course, you with us on holiday too 😊: going to the beach, swimming pool, walking around... You will have afternoons and weekends free if you want to. You would be happily welcome if you would like to be with us aswell, and that way, we could show you lovely places around our area. That is why sometimes we could decide together to go together on a day trip to show you different places around.
    Even if we are ok if you prefer to have a closed timetable, we would love to share with you whatever we do: park, beach, play and games with Izargi and Adei, familiar things (shops, order, clean, Izargi`s routine: shower, dinner, brush teeth and read a story)... As parents, we love to be with our little girl and boy, and teaching and learning with them, share games, at least, spend time with them. Up to you then ;)

    September:

    We are looking for a person to be with us for just a couple of weeks during the last days of august and the first ones of september. The main idea would be the same: know us and our culture, and do trips during the first days in august, and be with Izargi and Adei while we are working during the first days of september, until they star the school and the nursery.

    The person coming to us will have a bedroom with a wardrobe, a little desk and a bed, a bathroom and Wifi connection. Because of a space problems, maybe, you will have to share the bathroom with Adei, because the nappies change table is in this toilet. Izargi can use ours without any problem. We live in a 3 bedroom flat with two bathrooms. The flat (we have elevator) is in the center of the town of Leioa, with very good communications (the underground is 10 minutes walk; the bus, 1 minute walk; and the beach 25 minutes walk, and 5 minutes by car). Leioa is a town between Getxo (Where the suspension bridge is) and Bilbao (Guggenheim museum, Casco Viejo...) and it is a nice neighbourhood. We live in a beautiful place, surrounded by both, mountains and beaches.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is possible to visit different places nearby some days, with or without us. There are many interesting places in Vizcaya, such as Gaztelugatxe, Urdaibai, or around, like San Sebastian, Vitoria and anothers. We expect also, if you would like to, to visit family houses in a village near the beach in Cantabria, and a rural house in Álava if we agree it. We love to travel, so when our obligations allow us, we would like to show you areas around where we live and places that we think you would like to visit.
    We hope that the experience will be good for both. We have done twice, and both times has been such a wonderful experience and apart from that we know more people doing it and they have been really happy with it. So that is why we have decided to do it again.

    So, we would like to share the moments as a family, so that the four of us can improve our English aswell. We love to be outdoor and indoor, doing lovely plans, sports, cooking traditional Basque/your food, visiting different beaches and swimming pools, villages and towns around...; teaching things to you about our culture, while we are learning things about yours.
