  • Description


    Hi. We are a family of 4 living in Bristol, UK. I am British and my husband is Mexican. I teach Spanish and French in after school clubs to primary school age children. My husband is an engineer.

    Our children are aged 4 and 7. We have a welcoming friendly home with a large guest bedroom with a private bathroom. We speak both English and Spanish at home. I've also taught English as a foreign language both in the UK and abroad.

    We've hosted many people from around the world from language schools, online rentals and lodgers for over 8 years. We've lived in Bristol for over 12 years and know the city well. We have 2 friendly cats. No smokers please.

    You can learn about both British and Mexican culture and family life in a bilingual home.

    We've lived in Bristol for over 12 years so can help you with any information or advice about the city and region too. I'm a vegetarian and I am happy to teach you vegetarian cooking.

  • Help


    I am looking for a native French speaker to practise daily conversion. No teaching experience necessary. I just want to chat. It would also be great to expose the kids to some French too.

    We can also welcome a French-speaking family with primary aged children.

    We like our guests to respect the house and neighbours. Especially keeping quiet when the children are asleep (after 8pm).

    We aim to keep the house tidy and organised and the kitchen clean.

  • Accommodation


    Large room with a double bed desk and private bathroom with shower. Attic extension built in 2016. Everything new and high quality. We have an double airbed for your children if needed.

    For short-term placements, (1-2 weeks) you can eat with us or cook for yourself what ever you prefer. For longer placements, we'd prefer for you to do your own cooking/shopping (working hours will be reduced to compensate for this).

    We have a large, well equipped kitchen.
