I hope that you could teach my son on piano or painting and English. He is a beginner in English and spent almost one year in Finland and would like to make progress in English. We also hope that you could teach my son to draw, decorate and make some crafts which are his interests . And he attends painting courses in his spare time after class. Also he is taking piano courses and practising piano at the weekends. Now his interest focus on piano, so, teaching piano would be advantage. Teaching him playing piano is the main purpose for us to invite the guests to visit us.
If it is possible, we are looking for suitable long term partner for sort of English language center. But maybe it is too far to say this. In addition, If you are a computer/electrical/architecture student or engineer, you could also have the chance to join some useful projects related to your major for your sake of adding to your experience/skills.

We are living in a dependent house with 5 floors. My parents have one floor, my sisiter's family has one floor. We have diners toghers.
The guests are able to have one whole floor with double bedrooms, toilet and bathroom. Though one room has air conditioner, so in the summber when the weather is hot, only one bedroom is available. There are two kitchens in our house which you could use either one of them.
The house is around 5-minute walk away from a subway station of GF line of Canton city. We also own a house where four rooms are available for the guests. in the countryside in Shaoguang country side.
Our home locates in outskirt of Canton city. Guests who like night life are not suitable to stay here since after 11 o'clock at night, there will be no metro service and it costs your much money to take the taxi. Guests who are from small city may also find that it will be a bit far from the downtown. By subway, it will take you around 40 minutes to Pearl river New town, 35 minutes to Gong Yuan qian and 25 minutes to Shamian. Nearest super market would be in 15 minutes. FYI.
We could show you around canton city by metro or our car at the weekends. Our house locates nearby a metro station with 3-5 minute walk. We could also show you the countryside life in Canton province area(Shaogwang) at the public holidays when we go there for vocation. We also have a house there.
