    Hi, I am Helmer, I live with my wife, Lorena; and my 3 year old son, Matias. We both are Colombian that teach English at a public institute in San Gil, Santander. We are host with experience in intercultural exchange due to our active in receiving foreigners through Couchsurfing. Our son is growing up and we’d like now host women workawayers to stay longer at our place in order to increase their experience with a local family for more than a week, practicing with my son who speaks already English; in addition, you can improve your Spanish (Matias also speaks Spanish) learn about our customs, gastronomy, know our education system, and even more. You can join my classes and interact with more local people.

    There is no need that the workawayers have plenty of experience in childcare and masters teaching English to kids, no! That is our job as parents. Matias and I use English to comunicate each other all day long, but he uses Spanish with momy and at school. The volunteer would spend time with my son practicing English while playing with him, help him to have his things done and take him to school, and why not, you may teach him some of your abilities. You’ll get support form us, you'll be trained in order to see from us how all these go before you do by yourself. We know that a happy helper produces the best results and his stay becomes much more pleasurable.
    I would like also my child have a intercultural interchange with you.

    The volunteer will have the opportunity to live with a local warm family, learn or practice a new language “Spanish” and also interact with my students where the place I work. San Gil is the touristic capital of Santander, so many nature and extreme outdoor activities wait for you. At about 50 minutes by bus you can reach the Chicamocha Canyon, the biggest in Colombia and one the the best in America.

    My son speaks English and that is something really important for us as parents, I mean, to keep in touch with that second Language. He knows Spanish, thought. So basically this is what you would do on the weekday mornings. Spend the first two hours of the day with him helping Matias get ready to school and take him there at 8am. Matias has the following routine. Get up, have breakfast, organice his bedroom, brush his teeth, take a shower, put his uniform on and go to school. My wife and I prepare food for Matias and for the volunteer also, but that is something you also could help us with. It’s not your duty, however. Matías knows how to do all his routine by himself, but he needs sometimes support and guidance. After 8am, you’ll have the time to visit places nearby, or do your personal stuffs at home, etc.
    From 6 to 8am, two or three days a week my wife and I won’t be able to stay there with you because we should leave early to work.
    In the afternoons he has classes from 2 to 4. So there will be only one day of the week where you would pick him from school at noon, have lunch, take him back to school at 2pm and pick him up at 4 and be with him until 6pm, because I come back home from work at that time. The other 4 weekdays afternoon you also have free time.
    In the evenings, Matias goes to bed about 8 pm, sometimes earlier, and before he goes to sleep we play, spend time asking questions about school in order to improve language communicative skills, so you could join us, but it’s not a rule.

    On weekends we go out to visit friends nearby, go to a restaurant, visit a small town, visit relatives, have fun in general, and you can absolutely join us. That’ll be fun and a great opportunity for you to know what locals do on weekends. :)
