    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Twenty minutes driving from where I live there is a beachside city called Destin, Fl. This city welcomes international students and families in the summer to work, learn English, and enjoy the sun and sand. We welcome you to observe our American culture and specifically the gulf coast culture. Most people in this area were not born here and it’s interesting to see the different cultures come together and represent themselves individually. This work away will help you with your English, influence your understanding of the world, and teach you some new ways of caring for a child of a different culture.

    With your time off you may use your free time as you choose. I expect you will have a lot of time off because mom does not work a 8-5 job. There is a bay behind the house to visit and swim in. Also, we are less than twenty minutes to white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. We have a piano and many other instruments you may learn and play on. You may use our connections to join a gym, or pick up some extra income at a local shop or restaurant. Our city is bikeable.
