  • Description


    We are Renza e Gianni, an italian couple of sixty-one years old. We live in a small city, Ivrea, in the north-west of Italy. It is located between the Alps (40 km), the Mediterranean sea (150 km), Turin (50 km) and Milan (120 km). The area in which we live in is green, there are a lot of lakes and hills. There are a lot of outdoor activities.

    And now a little bit about us.
    Gianni is an IT technician and Renza is a psycotherapist. We have two sons (24 and 25) who moved out and sometimes they come visit us. We live with Tigro, a cute european grey cat.
    We are active, playful people and we have a lot of interests. We love nature, biking, reading, cooking and eating. In our lives we have travelled a lot and we especially like to meet people, cultures and to learn from one another.

    In the future, we want to keep travelling. For this reason we would like to improve our knowledge of the english language since we are not fluent enough. We are looking for workawayers (preferably older than 35) who are fluent in english and are willing to help us to improve our vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar.

    We live in a house with a small garden and we would also like a small help to maintain it, mostly in spring and summer.

    We can also host a couple.

    Ideally workawayers will stay for at least four days.

    We don't want smokers.

  • Help


    We expect workawayers to help with english practice roughly from 3 to 5 hours daily. The language practice should be carried out in a relaxing and friendly way, for example while cooking, gardening, chatting and daily trips.

    We really want to learn and practice english, but we are not too serious about the language exchange. We don't want you to be our professor and we don't want to be your student!

    To clarify once again, we are not very fluent in english and we want to improve our vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar.

    Apart from language exchange, we would also like a small help to maintain the garden, mostly in spring and summer. The help could be weeding garden, cutting grass...
