    Description

    We are a funny and young family with 4 children: Mercedes (12 years), Antonio (10 years), Rafael (8 years) and Trinidad (6 years) living in the center of Fuengirola in a large house near the sea and would like to contact a young girl, non-smoker, who speaks English well so share both Spanish-English and help us a bit with the kids and the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been receiving visits from girls from all over the world through workaway for eight years and I can say that it has been a highly enriching experience for both parties. They immerse themselves fully in Spanish culture and learn about our gastronomy, lifestyle, learn Spanish, enjoy our festivals, discover southern Spain visiting places like Mijas, Puerto Banús, Malaga, Ronda, Tarifa, etc. Sometimes we learn endless things about the country where the volunteers who come home come from and also offer us support with the children, we practice English and we get the enthusiasm of their youth.

    Llevamos ocho años recibiendo la visita de chicas de todas las partes del mundo a través de workaway y puedo decir que ha sido una experiencia altamente enriquecedora para ambas partes. Ellas se sumergen de lleno en la cultura española y aprenden sobre nuestra gastronomía, estilo de vida, aprenden el español, disfrutan de nuestras fiestas, descubren el sur de España visitando lugares como Mijas, Puerto Banús, Málaga, Ronda, Tarifa, etcétera y a la vez nosotros aprendemos un sin fin de cosas del país donde proceden las voluntarias que vienen a casa y además nos ofrecen apoyo con los niños, practicamos inglés y nos contagiamos del entusiasmo propio de su juventud.
