  • Description


    I live in a small town with my 10 year old boy.
    Our place is bythe Atlantic ocean in La Paloma, Rocha.

    I love cooking, painting mandalas, knitting, and outdoor activities.

    I am a teacher of Spanish and English as a foreign language. People who come home may also take a formal course in order to have classes. However, learning always occurs at home naturally. ( My kid loves teaching!!!
    Besides, in town there are plenty of opportunities to meet, chat and meet people. The best of Uruguay is its people who are friendly and eager to talk, help and share their time.
    In La Paloma life pace is slow, there is always time for meeting friends and having mate chatting, the experience of living without stress is unique here.

    I am very sociable and love learning about other cultures.
    Something very important is that if you come home, you will have to provide your own food.
    As an exchange you won't be working more than 3 hours daily
