  • Description


    Hello everyone!
    I live with my sons Francesco(20) , Andrea(18) and my little dog Puffo in La Spezia, a seaside town very close to tourist places of extraordinary beauty like Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, Corniglia, Monterosso (5 Terre), Lerici and Portovenere.

    Our flat is large and comfortable and it is 5 minutes walk to the centre station. Here you can spend funny moments and you can visit wonderful places. Near our flat there are pubs, shops, supermarkets, bus station and train station so it is very simple finding what do you want and reaching the destinations you want! For example: Florence is to 1hour and 45 minutes from here by train.

    Andrea and I are looking for one english mother tongue or one person with an excellent level of English who can speak with us and help us to improve our grammar and vocabulary.

    We would like to study English every morning, during our holiday in summer, for about 2 hours a day from Monday to Friday.
    We also need a little help with housework, in our family everyone does a bit of housework every day to keep the house clean.
    You will be free in the afternoon, in the evening and at the weekend.

    You are very welcome to join in with the family for meals. Equally, you are welcome to cook and eat separately for some meals, or go out for some meals, if you would prefer.
