    Thanks for reading our profile.

    1- At the moment I am planning to sit a French exam next October. I understand a lot of spoken French but for me it's difficult to speak and here I don't get the chance to do it.
    The main requirements are: female, older than 25 and some teaching experience.

    We are a family of 2 people, Emilio (47) and me, Ana (39) and a cat called Hodor. He is considered a member of the family too.
    Emilio works in a warehouse despite the fact that he has a degree in Geography. If you are interested in history and you can speak Spanish, he is the perfect person to meet. He also collects coins from all over the world and can teach a lot about that. He says he likes meeting people but I realised he didn't speak much with other volunteers we had, so just count on me (Ana) or my friends as the only persons to get along with during your stay.

    I (Ana) am a private English teacher and I work in one-to-one classes with children and teenagers in the evenings but during the summer I am on holiday.

    We live in a flat 65 square metres in a town next to Barcelona (5 km far). The town is called La Llagosta and you can easily get to the city centre by train in 15-20 minutes. Our town is really great because it is quiet but it has all necessary things near you. It is a lot cheaper than living in Barcelona, but it is not a beautiful place (just buildings).

    Our place is convenient if you are looking forward exploring Barcelona but having a quiet place to rest after with REAL locals. Also it.s good if you don.t expect hard work because we don.t have kids, garden, a big house, hostels, farms, big animals, and all that things that take a lot of extra time.

    The stay I am offering is for 1 WEEK ONLY

    You as a volunteer will be kindly invited to my daily life, and also to join during activities at the weekend if you feel like it. PLEASE if you want to do things together with me, let me know. Normally I won't ask you because I don't want that you feel you must come if I ask first. Of course you can do your own thing if you wish, but I would like to share cultures and experiences at least. In other words, make you feel like in your own family.
    If you are the kind of volunteer who is only looking for a free roof and food and to remain closed inside your bedroom all your free time, maybe we won't be the perfect match.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We are a catalan couple (both born in Barcelona), but our families are originary from different parts of Spain. We grew up with different cultural backgrounds, the one the learnt from our parents and the one we were taught at school. We offer you a cultural exchange in which you can learn about spanish and catalan culture at the same time.
    We can explain both spanish and catalan history and customs. We know our region well and can show you places or recommend visits.
    We will cook typical spanish and catalan food for you too if you are brave enough to taste anything.

    I am planning to sit a French exam next October (preferably Delf B1, if I manage to reach the level), but for me it's difficult to get some French spoken practice, so I'd love to meet a person, with SOME TEACHING EXPERIENCE who can volunteer provinding me spoken French classes related to the topics that will come up in my exam. Also, I expect that the person will correct my written essays and gives me feedback on how to improve them.
    I prefer that the volunteer speaks with me all the time in French.

    I would like a volunteer that is ready to teach French for 3 hours a day (with a break :) , preferably in the mornings, but no problem to do in the afternoons. I require that the person makes me practice the exercises that will appear in the exam and that he / she corrects my mistakes on spoken, written, grammar etc.

    Please, when you contact me specify:
    -the skills you can offer. (have you ever been a teacher or taught your language?)
    -your working experienc, no matter if teacher or otherwise.
    -about you (do you come to barcelona for pleasure/ studies/ gap year?)
    -things you would like from us, like learning spanish, hang aroung, drive you to places, etc.
    -why you are interested in this volunteering and specifically in teaching.

    ALSO:I need to find information about you in your profile, the more you explain about you, the better.

    The perfect volunteer for me should be a person who:

    -likes meeting others but can do their own thing too.
    -likes exploring the outdoors and don.t stay at home all the time when they are free.
    -is able to do smth together with me.
    -is reliable, interested and serious with the tasks.
    -behaves as we were a family and contributes with house chores equally.
    -don't expect to be paid with money.
