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 too...lol!!!
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
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
They will learn about our culture and food. And as I am a teacher.They may also learn Spanish or English.
I teach Spanish and English as a foreign language so it' d be great to share some of my classes both at Highschool or private lessoons.
I also appreciate teaching English to my Kid who is 9. I would really like and I do need to learn portuguese.

As many hours I am at work and my son spend most of the weekdays with his dad and his activities,you will have with more spare time during the week and on weekends we may share cultural activities and enjoy meeting local people and friends. We will have the unique opportunity of having the ocean for us...and the Rocha lagoon.
