    The exchange involves mainly playing with the children in one of the foreign languages indicated above, teach some piano, also some help with homework, specially maths, science would be very appreciated. Also some light help with housework is expected.

    They play piano at a begginer level so you could help them if you also play it! But it's not a must.
