    Description

    Hello! We are an Italian family living in 📍Verona. Verona is a wonderful city full of history, and it is near Venice, Milano and Garda Lake.
    We live in in a place full of greenery and trees, a very beautiful place 10 minutes far from city center by car. There are buses to connect to the center and we will lend you a bicycle if you like to ride around with it.
    You will have your own room, bathroom and wifi.
    We have 4 children (8,7,4,2 year-old) and we are looking for an English speaking to be part of our family. Children take time to adapt to a new person and for this reason we ask you a minimum stay of about 2 and a half months (if more even better).
    We don't smoke, We are welcoming, friendly, caring and positive people. I hope you will be a friend for us!
    All children will be at school in the morning and you will be free (from september to june).
    We need help with children for about 25 hours a week with weekends off🥳. We are looking for someone (ONLY ENGLISH MOTHER-TONGUE SPEAKER) who can play with some (sometimes all) of them in the afternoon, teach them English with stories or fun games, and help me with dinner, to prepare children for school or for going to bed in the evening, and with light housework (we have a housekeeper,1 time a week, but we also need your help!). Please try to speak English with children as more as possible, trying to name objects often and trying to get an answer from them too.
    We have 2 dogs, one small and one large in size. We hope you like dogs too.
    I am an engineer while my husband is an entrepreneur.
    Before selecting and confirm any guest, we will send an aptitude questionnaire, please take about 10 minutes to fill it in if you are interested in being hosted by our family.
    Can't wait to know you!!!
