  • Description


    We are Ana, Eduard and Biel (7 years old). We are looking for a young English native girl to spend time with our son in summer months (mainly from June to August). We want him to learn English in a funny way. Biel is a very cheerful, friendly and polite child. He loves stories, drawing, singing, doing inventions, playing Lego robotics, dressing up and playing any game you propose him.

    Ana (44 years old) works in a pharmaceutical company. Eduard (43 years old) is a magician and psychology professor. Eduard works normally at home and Ana is out only in the mornings. We are a nice family and there is always a very good atmosphere at home.

    We live in Llagostera, a small town of 8000 inhabitants, at 15 km far away from the beach (the famous Costa Brava) and 20 km from the city of Girona. It’s a very well communicated town with a good public transport.
    Our house is located downtown. It has recently been renovated, has two floors, a garden and enough space to enjoy your stay.

    We are looking for a young English native girl, who likes children (7 years old) and would like to live together with a Spanish/Catalan family.

    We need workawayers mainly from June, when our son starts his school holidays. Your help will consist in sharing time with Biel, playing or doing activities, always speaking only in English. As you will be alone with our son, please, write us only if you are a VERY responsible person. We also expect a cheerful active girl, outgoing and with initiative, who loves children. Biel is a very lovely boy, and if you have these qualities, we are sure that you will enjoy a lot your workaway time with him.

    We want Biel to start speaking English as well as the rest of the family can practice it too. As we are many hours at home, we can be flexible to agree a schedule that suits us all.

    We would like to share time and meals with you, and have a real cultural exchange. If you want to learn or improve your level of Spanish or Catalan, we would be happy to speak with you in any of these languages during meals or free time. In our house we speak both languages, Spanish and Catalan.

    You will also contribute to some household tasks (cleaning, washing dishes, clothes, cooking, etc.), just like any other member of our family.

    From Monday to Friday we will need from you 4-5 hours a day. Weekends, you can have free time, except on very special occasions.

    IMPORTANT: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, on 2021 we only accept european workawayers. PCR negative test will be required just before arriving to our home.
