    We would like to have an english speaker girl to spend time with Júlia and Gerard on the afternoons from monday to Friday
    You would have a lot of free time every morning until 15:00., it's when we need you as julia and Gerard get home from school.
    We would appreciate a morning walk to Fred.
    Plenty of free time during the day until 3pm and then normal family duties, just as part of the family, it's an easy way of cultural exchange. Having a nice talk while cooking, helping around with the kids, or just sharing time together. We would love to know about your country and culture and we would be very proud of share ours with you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We thought it would be a great idea to have a native english speaker to give my kids the opportunity to practice their english in an easy and natural way.
    Improving our kids english is our main goal.
    So we would love to have someone with good skills of English and who really like kids, to enjoy talking and spend time with them and become part of our family.
    Family values are important for us.

    We like to do outside activities on weekends and get some fresh air, as we are very busy with daily duties during the week.
    we like hiking, skiing, biking, but we also enjoy just having a nice and relaxing walk in Granollers, or having dinner with friends and neighbours, or watching Saturday evening movie all together in the sofa.

    We prefer stays of a month minimum.

    There is a gym in the neighbourhood, and we can provide a bike for your use.
    There is a bus stop 5' walking from home to reach Granollers, nice city with all the facilities and services you may need, such as restaurants, shopping area, sport centre, cinemas, library...

    Some other families in the village have workawayers.
    Our neighbours next door use workaway too.
    We already had several experiences hosting young people and we loved it.
    So we are waiting to share a new experience with you.
