  • Description


    Daughter 19 years old and son 15 years old. We have travelled extensively and have now settled in Brisbane. English is our native language, but we also speak other languages. We live in Ascot, a very nice suburb about 7km from Brisbane centre with public transport to the city. We are interested in music and mother is a qualified ESL teacher. Son loves outdoors, sport (especially rowing and basketball) and playing chess. I am looking for someone to do Greek or Macedonian language practice or Latin dance partner (either male or female who can do male steps). We have 2 cats. I put Balkan in the title to aid search criteria. If you are a native of another Balkan country and also speak a bit of Macedonian, that might work too.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a lot of experience both living overseas and dealing with foreign travellers and refugees here in Australia. Discussions about travel in Oz and also future travel elsewhere, stopovers etc (have lived in Europe, Asia and Middle East). Mother is qualified ESL teacher and lots of material - can give tips but not full on lessons. Have been to most places in Australia. Kids have studied Australian history and Aboriginal culture at school. Some material on Australian culture. Speak fluent French and reasonably good German and Italian, and intermediate Macedonian for anyone wanting to practice those. Just started learning Greek. Mum is Scottish. My biggest tip for all of your coming here, even if you don't come to us is please don't get together with people from your own country of origin (I see it so much) and you miss out on so much by doing this!
