  • Description

    Description

    We are a young, active and sympathetic family. There are four of us, my two sons (8 and 9 years old), my wife and I. Althoug we are a big family with a lot of friends. So If you want to know our culture and people, I think this is the apropiate family.

    Childen have several activities like music, football and padel. They like practising sports, paint and learn. They are also very polite and friendly children. Gonzalo plays the violin and Rodrigo is learning to play the guitar. In the morning they go to the school and in the afternoon they have thier activities.

    Rosa and I work at home, although we travell due to our job. She goes and back in the day and in my case a travell from time to time to different places in Spain. She is saleswoman in the pharmacy industry and I work as Product Manager for a multinational company. Furthermore we have olive and almond orchards

    Weekends we like to have activities with friends or relatives. NOrmally we could prepare typical meals like paella or barbacue or we go out to drink a beer and eat a traditional "tapa". Rosa likes to spend time with frinds and realatives weekends and It is very normal to find some visit at home. I need to rest a little from time to time. Rosa tires me anyhow!

    We live in a small village, close to Jaén (5 minutes by car). So It lets us live in a quiet environment where we all know each other, where you have facilities (some of them free like the gym), but at the same tiem you can enjoy of the benefits of a city where you can go shopping, visit museums and so on.

    We are family with sense of humor, respectful, popular in our village and with charisma. Whatever people will fell very comfortable with us.

    So If you want to know our culture, our customs, meet people, contact us!.

    Due to my work I need to improve my level of English and It is a very important language that I would like that my children learn it. So that's why the person who came to stay with us have to speak with my sons and I in English.
    My leves is good enough, I have English job meeting in English, but I need fluency and improve my pronunciation. My sons's level is low. Furthermore I want them to start to have contac with broad people in order to know other culture and other ways to thing. The goal is that they learn to respect different people.

    Por mi trabajo necesito seguir empujando mi inglés y como es un idioma tan importante, quiero que mis hijos también lo aprendan. Para eso me gustaría que la persona que decida estar con nosotros hable conmigo y con ellos en Inglés. Mi nivel es bueno, mantengo reuniones de trabajo en Inglés, pero necesito más fluidez y mejorar mi pronunciación. El nivel de mis hijos es el de colegio. Quiero que empiecen a tener un contacto real con el inglés y que conozcan personas de otros países, para que abran la mente, conozcan otras culturas y se enriquezcan como personas.
