You can learn Spanish by practicing talking every day with my parents and other family members coming on sundays. You can learn local food cooking. You can practice may sports, specially kayak and trekking.
We are searching for 1 person who would like to stay in our land and help with the gardening (we have several orange and lemon trees, small palm trees, olive trees, vegetables and other fruit-trees and decorating plants that need to be cared). Also help with the animals, to feed them and clean their nest. We have 20 chicken and we need to keep them clean and collect the eggs every day. We have 3 big dogs and 1 small dog, and they like to be taken for a walk sometimes outside the land (with no leed).
My parents don't speak a word of English.
My brother would like to practice some speaking-English with you sometimes.
In exchange, you will have free accommodation, food ingredients for you to cook your own food and sometimes (if you like) you can get homemade Spanish food. My mother is a great cook!

Our land is 15 kilometers from the sea (20 minutes by bus or car). There is a bus line 800 meters from our land. This bus will take you either to the coast line if you wish to swim on the beach or it can also take you inland, where you can visit Orihuela. Orihuela is a 60.000 people small city. It is a very interesting place to visit as it was a very old medieval city long time ago, so you can visit old churches and typical medieval streets.
If you go on the coast, you will find Torrevieja city (15 kilometers by bus). Torrevieja is a coast city, with all sort of shops, bars, discos and entertainment. It is very crowded and animated in summer! It is a very turistic city, all Spanish and european people visit this city in summer.
