  • Description


    Currently taking a break from hosting. I am a single, middle-aged woman who enjoys an active lifestyle of hiking, yoga, gym/aqua classes, and skiing. I live alone in the beautiful tourist town of Bend, Oregon, famous for the mountains and outdoor activities. It is a small city but we have everything we need here. I look forward to returning to Italy and I want to improve my Italian.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you are learning English, we can spend some time each day speaking English. If you want to learn mountain biking or rock climbing, you can sign up for lessons or a guide. Stand up paddle-boarding is also available on our river. Activities in the river will depend on the temperature. September is the beginning of cool weather here.

    This placement is for native Italian speakers only. Io cerco solo persone madrelingue italiano. I am an intermediate Italian speaker, but don't have anyone nearby to speak with. I would like to have daily Italian conversation in the house, and 2-3 hours a day of instruction focused on speaking. (Maybe 60 -- 75 minutes in the a.m. and p.m.) I'm also interested in learning basic business correspondence. You can take 2-3 days off per week for your own excursions or to have a break from teaching.

    It would be great to cook some meals together, but that is optional and depends what you like to eat.

  • Accommodation


    I live in a two bedroom townhouse. Sometimes I have a housemate so I'm not able to host at all times. You will have your own room with queen-size bed, however we will share the bathroom. The kitchen and refrigerator are large and you can use them for all of your basic cooking needs. I don't cook often but I can provide some ingredients. Some foods you will need to buy for yourself.

    What else ...

    To see the local sights here, you need a car. You can borrow mine for easy drives on paved roads, or you can rent a car in my town. I can also take you to see some things, and we can go for several nearby hikes together to see the mountains and waterfalls. We have some good restaurants and my neighborhood is accessible by walking or biking.

    There is a good market, cafe, bakery, and some restaurants just a few blocks away.
