We are Diana and Eleonora, two 22 years old italian girls who are looking for an english mother-tongue person to host in our house near Padua. We live in a beautiful, big home with 5 young friendly people.
We are developing with our team in Italy a project about the education field, to help children and teenagers grow in the best way possible, so we are looking to practice our english skills in order to bring this beautiful project abroad and have a positive impact in the world.
(I know... very ambitious, but today it's possible to achieve this goal because nowadays lots of parents and teachers are looking for this!)
So Eleonora and I have the aim to reach an advanced level of english, becoming fluent in speaking.
Padua is a charming city with a lot of nice shops, bars and cafes. It is nor too big nor too small.
It is a historical city in northern Italy and it's also quite unique because you can find near here both the sea and the mountains.
In Padua there are a lot of young people so there are many opportunities to socialize and make new friends, discovering the heart of Italian culture.
Padua is also very close to Venice, so we can go on a trip together and visit one of the most beautiful and fascinating city in the world many times.
Eleonora and Diana love cooking, so it will be a pleasure to teach how to cook delicious Italian dishes and you will have the opportunity to eat everyday very tasty and unforgettable meals.
We are looking for a kind and outgoing boy/girl who is willing to speak with the two of us for 3 hours per day.
It's very important for us to speak as much as possible in order to become fluent and built a wide vocabulary. (we have both an intermediate level of english)
