    Description

    Daughter 16 years old and son 12 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 very interested in music (piano, violin, clarinet, trombone and other instruments) and mother is a qualified ESL teacher. Son loves outdoors, sport and playing chess. I am looking for someone to do French language practice (no English) as well as activities with the kids or Italian or Polish language practice with me or Latin dance partner (either male or can do male steps). We have 2 cats.

    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 basic Italian and Polish for anyone wanting to practice those. 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!

    The exact nature of the work will depend on your skills. French language practice (no English - we speak fluent French) with the kids while doing activities that they (especially my son) enjoy also. Polish / Italian practice with me and some other things based on your skills. Hours vary, so some days more and other days depending on weather, etc you can take the whole day or 2 to do a day trip. Or if you can partner to do Latin dance practice (male steps). No smoking.
