  • Description


    First of all, thank you for taking the time to read our profile. We are a nice, open-minded family from Madrid that like to share our time with people from other countries and cultures. We have already hosted other workawayers and we have had great experiences in all the cases.

    We are a family of five: Jorge is a civil engineer and Carmen is a dentist. Our kids are 18, 16 and 12 years old. They are very active, friendly and polite and have lots of hobbies: tennis, basketball, skiing, piano, chess, swimming, hiking and many more. We live in Madrid, 30 minutes to the center of Madrid by public transportation, close to one of the Universities. We have the subway/metro, trains and buses nearby. We live in a nice and modern semidetached house with a garden and swimming pool.

    We have an looking for a friendly, easy going young fellow to join our family for the 2020-2021 school year. He must be responsible and likes teenagers. We ask you to spend time with the boys and speak and teach them English (and French if you know it). They already speak fluent English, but they want to improve it, specially the writing and vocabulary. We expect the volunteer to be an active person and feel and participate as part of our family. You should be able to prepare simple meals for the boys like sandwiches or salads but you will not have to do other tasks at home except keep your room tidy. You are very welcome to spend your time doing things with us, if you wish. Don´t be afraid if you do not speak a word of Spanish because you will not have any problems. We all speak good English and we also speak French. We can teach you Spanish if you like.

    What else ...

    We live in Montecarmelo, a new neighbourhood in the north of the capital. The area is full of young people with a lot of bars and sports centres. We are very close to one of the most important green areas of Madrid (Los Montes del Pardo). Madrid is a very nice city and the locals are very welcoming when it comes to visitors. It´s a great city to walk around, visit museums, talk to people and meet new friends. Madrid is in the middle of Spain so it is very well connected with the rest of the wonderful towns and cities.
