Ciao! My name's Luca.
I run an English Language School in Latisana, a small village, 75 km from Venice.
I'd like to host a English Speaker to help me and the other teachers run the school where we organise General English Courses, for kids and for adults, all year round.
Teaching is funny if you like meeting people and sharing your time with other.
I ask less than 20 hours a week of tuition. But I appreciate some help at home with domestic chores, too.
The volunteer will be host in the family house, which is 1 km from the English School. Private large bedroom and bathroom to share with just me (I mostly use another bathroom).
We are a family of 3 people: my father Loris (57), my sister Francesca (20), and I (22).
We have pets: 1 dog, 3 cats, 2 parrots
People with experience in teaching would be preferable, but if you are a quick learner it will be fine.
The duty is every day from Monday to Friday, mostly in the afternoons and sometimes in the evenings, from 3 up to 5 hours a day of tuition, it depends on the day and it consists on lessons with the school's students.
During your time off, you can rest, visit the important towns nearby like Trieste, Venice, Padua.
We like eating well and you will appreciate delicious Italian food (gnocchi, homemade pasta al forno, pizza, ...)
A knowledge of Italian is not important.
I hope to meet you soon,
Luca and his family

we live in a small village, 75 km from Venice. we are very close to an important tourist resort called Lignano Sabbiadoro, with a huge golden beach. Buses and trains can take you to the beach, to Venice, Trieste, or up to the mountains of Friuli.
We used to host foreign people (au-pairs and students in exchange) when me and my sister were younger. Most of the family can speak English.
I have had previous experiences in hosting guests, therefore I (22), with my father Loris (57) and my sister Francesca (20), will do our best to let you feel at home away from home.
