    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our family really like Chinese traditional culture such as Confucian, Daoist, Buddhism. My wife and I really like meditation. We used to do Vipassana for several times. We do meditation everyday and if you like to do meditation, we can share this experience with you. In this Spring our family went to Ananda Village in California and stayed for two months. My daughter now can communicate with English speaking people using some basic sentences.

    The tasks you will do are:

    1. Teaching 6-year-old daughter Elsa spoken English per hour per day.
    2. Teaching my wife Snow spoken English per hour per day.
    3. Just like family members keep the room clean. Now my wife cooks the meals, Elsa collects all the bowls and plates after meals. I wash all the kitchenware and mop the floor. You may also join with us keep the room cozy and clean.
    4. My wife is good at Chinese cuisine and if you are interested, she can teach you how to cook Chinese cuisine. If you’d like you may also cook some western meals from time to time.
    5. Every Tuesday and Thursday night I provide the nature education for the local kids in Seven-Star park. I also invite you to join with us playing with kids in nature.
    6. We will go to work or school at daytime in workdays. Like family members you may use all the utilities such as washing machine, WIFI, DVD and so on. You may explore all the travelling sites by yourself quite easy because we live in a convenient place of the city.

    Because the mainly task is teaching two ladies spoken English in my family, we prefer FEMALE fluent English speaking people. Wish that you have a nice holiday in Guilin.
