Our family is made up of me ( a native English teacher), my daughters - 18 and 15,my grandson ( 15 months) and my son-in-law. We run a charity / homestay in Spain where we encourage children, who do not have the means to visit England, to live with us to learn the English culture and language. As a host family our students have the opportunity to swim in our pool, sleep in tents in our large garden and visit local sites. We host children from all over the world and we do lots of activities for local children throughout the year
We have many children from underprivileged families who don't have many socail skills or chances to advance in life so our aim is to make them feel loved and important for someone!. Thoe English for some of them is not so important as the love you give them!
For many of the children it is their first holiday!!
So if you like working with children and want to enjoy your holiday Come and Volunteer with us!!
