Anyway we will adapt to the skills of the people coming to our house. As well, me Idoia, I would like to practice English, speaking and working using this language. The idea is to volunteer 3-4 hours per day in the morning, in a flexible way. We offer you food and accommodation. There is also place in the house for practising Yoga, doing exercise, paint…
