  • Description


    Hello we are a family from Madrid with three members: Our son Nico (10 years old), his father Antonio, and me, my name is Barbara.

    We would love to welcome a NATIVE ENGLISH volunteer (woman or man and Scout possible) to our house to entertain and play with Nico, and also to speak to us in English and learn the language.

    We live in the fantastic city of Madrid, in a beautiful apartment within a community with a large park and a wonderful community pool where we spent most of the day during those dates. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant and has a Metro stop to go to the city center (30 minutes), universities, museums, theaters, concert halls, shopping areas, etc. Near the city of Madrid, at an hour, there are beautiful mountain areas and incredible monumental cities to visit: Toledo, Segovia, Aranjuez, El escorial.

    We are fun, we love music and art and Nico is crazy about bugs and Lego constructions, and for a year now it has been SCOUT.

    What else ...

    This is the first time that we have signed up for this kind of experience, and we are very excited to share these days with a volunteer. Especially by Nico who has not yet gone abroad. Nico is a fun, intelligent and very happy child, we are sure that you will have a great time with him the time you spend together.
    Ah Nico has been a Scout for a year now, so it would be great to have an English Scouter who tells us about his experience.

    Es la primera vez que nos apuntamos a este tipo de de experiencia, y estamos muy ilusionados por compartir estos días con algún voluntario. Especialmente por Nico que todavía no ha ido al extranjero. Nico es un niño divertido, inteligente y muy alegre, estamos seguros que os lo pasareis con él genial el tiempo que paséis juntos.
    Ah Nico es Scout desde hace un año, así que sería estupendo poder contar con algún Scouter inglés que nos cuente su experiencia.
