  • Description


    Hi! We're a franco-italian family with two teenagers (14 and 16) living in a nice ancient house with a garden nearby the forest and 40 mn from Paris (tram+train). We had the chance to share our family life with great au pairs when the boys were younger and now we'd like to continue some cultural exchanges with a proficient (native or C2 level) english (or spanish) speaker.

    We'd like to speak english while sharing with you our evening family meals, that you could prepare the days when both parents work in Paris. If you like science, you could ideally teach some maths/physics/chemistry to the boys after school and/or during the week-end. If you play the piano or the guitar, you could form a band with the boys! If you like painting, drawing, sculpting, you could share your art and inspiration with the whole family. If you like gardening, the gardern is yours. And if you like sport, you can run, bike, exercise with the boys.

    From our village you can take a tram (15mn) and then a local train (25 mn) and you're in Paris, where you can go everyday if you want. But if you prefer nature, the forest is just behind the house.
    Our boys are at school from Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm (Wednesday they come back for lunch). Both parents work in Paris (at least 3 days per week) and at home (1 or two days per week).
    We like our house (and in particular the kitchen) to be kept clean and in order. We have two kind cats.
