    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a family, we live in İzmir which is located on the West coast of Turkey. We can travel to nearby cities and ancient ruins in the area. Also, we can teach some Turkish as well as some Turkish dishes. Izmir is one of the most peaceful places in Turkey which can offer entertainment as well. We have a comfortable house. We are a family with whom travelers can have fun. I'm sure when they come, they will not want to go back :)

    I want the travelers to speak English and/or their native languages with my children and me. During the day, we can cook together if they like to cook; we can go outside for a walk. In short, we want to have a friend in the house with who we can practice English.
