    Hello everyone!!

    If you are traveling around Europe and you want to rest and keep energy some weeks in a spanish house, come to visit us!

    If you want to enroll in a spanish course and have free accommodation and food come to visit us! There is a Spanish Institute where every week they have Spanish courses. You can enroll the weeks that you need, 1-2-3 or more weeks. You can enroll 1-2 week course (no necessarily together) to improve your spanish and also meet new people/friends at the same situation who can go out together on weekends.

    A bit about us: We are a family of 5: My husband and me, and 3 kids. One girl (7 years old), and two boys (5 and 2 year old). We are active people and we love sports and go out with friends with kids. During the weekend we try to do varied activities with children.

    We live 5 minutes walking to the beach (The Mediterranean Sea), with great weather and lots of sunshine. We also have high mountains and beautiful villages around. beautiful paths to run and walk. Benicasim is a touristy and beautiful town with great atmosphere. Castellon, is plenty of shops. Valencia, where yo can spend a weekend, is 1 hour trip by train.

    Teach english to our kids is very important to us. We want to give them the possibility to travel around world when they get older without feeling the language as a wall. Nevertheless, we are looking for a different ways to teach them english (not just school lessons). Playing, telling them stories, roleplaying and usual household activities are for us the best way to acquire the language skills. Because kids are very smart, we need that you speak only in english at home.

    Is not a problem ir your are vegan.! I am nutricionist and i understand any requeriment ;)

    We would like to meet an active and talkative girl who really loves play with children and lots of imagination. English as a mother tonge. Friendly, tidy and clean. Responsible and independent.

    During school time (holidays and summer are different, i will explain you our needs directly). Approximately at 17.15h kids arrive home from school. That’s would be your kid’s time. Play/ teach them around 3 hours and later tell them bedtime stories before sleep . Nowadays they can understand a lot but our goal is they begin to develop speaking skills.

    The girl will have weekends off. In your free time you can make plans on your own, join family plans or propose alternative plans. We are a very open and flexible family.

    Housework is not your task, however any help at home is welcome. But at the least, clean up after kids and yourself will be expected. Our meal schedule is very irregular, because of this, we look for someone who be able to cook for herself. In weekend we usually prepare traditional dishes: paella, homemade pizza, tortilla de patatas… (yummy, heheh!) although the most common during the week is that you have to prepare your own meals. All foods we have in the kitchen are at your disposal so you can prepare the meals that you like. If you are vegan is not a problem, If you need something special that we don’t usually buy, let me know ;)

    We would like 2/3 hours English conversation per week with my husband as well, in which ones Guillermo could explain you a little about our Spanish history, food, culture or anything that interests you. Thus, he can improve a little bit his English level and you can learn more about Spain. For example, one of those days they were speaking about “Fallas”, typical and very famous festival in Valencia.
