    As I'll consider this as a cultural exchange, you could join me to cook, if you like cooking, in that way you could learn how to cook the Spanish food you like and I could learn how to cook other dishes.
    I want both sides benefit from this cultural exchange. So I'll try to look for you opportunities where you can practise Spanish,too.

    In the area where we live, there aren't many opportunities to speak English. We're aware of the importance our daughters learn it. So we're looking for an English native speaking who talks to us in English. The main idea is to play (at home, in the beach...), sing, read stories, dance, do art and crafts, cook with them. Looking for excuses to speak in English with them. Don't be shy about doing little girls things. Feel free to be a little girl again!

    We're mainly interested in practising English at home , we'll ask you to babysit from time to time. And being an extra hand at home when it's necessary.
    Never more than 5 hours per day.

    Once you read this if you are l interested, let us know. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
