    Cozy Family in Palermo, Sicily is looking for help to improve English of children

    HELP REQUESTED FROM MAY 15th - minimum 2 week.
    We are a close-knit and sociable family, living in the historic center of Palermo. Our kids (aged 11 and 9 y.o.) are growing up and it’s absolutely necessary improve their English and let them meet people of different cultures. Be a big sister to our children!

    I'm 44 years old, working in Communication&Marketing for a scientific foundation. I'm married and I live with my husband and our children (11 and 9 years old) in the historical center of Palermo. I'm from Bolzano (North-Italy, at the board with Austria) and my husband is Sicilian: the perfect union between North and South!
    We love good wine and food, music, to travel, to read and to spend time with our friends! We believe in hospitality and in the reciprocal exchange!

    The apartment is located a few steps from the famous "Massimo Theatre”, one of the historical-architectural symbols of Palermo, in the very hearth of the city, and is very close to the main tourist attractions and leisure time of the city, all within walking distance. You won’t find a better place tos stay!

    We are looking forward to find a really nice, friendly and polite girl who will mainly speak with our children in English, take them to school, accompany them to various activities if needed. We look for someone interested in being part of our family, a big sister for our children.
    We prefer English mother tongues.

    The help required is normally in the afternoon (about 20 hours a week).
    Some years ago we had 3 wonderful experiences with aupair girls

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Palermo, in its history, is the expression of European cultures that have engaged in dialogue with the Arab world. Culture is a tool of contrast, knowledge of the other, and helps to overcome differences as an obstacle to peaceful coexistence. In this historical moment, with its extensive migration and globalisation, the continent of Europe appears to be in the grip of an identity crisis. What may rescue Europe from its crisis is a reinvigoration of its deep rooted traditions of openness and hospitality. Sicily, with its history of millennial migrations, offers a rich and seasoned point of departure to reimagine European identity. Palermo is a lively city, cosmopolitan and at the same time full of history and belonging. you will be fascinated by this pearl of the Mediterranean, its history, its historical and artistic beauties, its excitement and its beautiful beaches.
