Hello, my name is Cinthia. I have 2 kids that are bilingual and they need to practise and improve their English language. Because our daughter started to study French at school we are also looking for a French mother tongue Workaway.
We live in Tuscany (a wonderful and very popular region), just in front of the sea, in a city called Livorno, that is very close to Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa... and to Viareggio, where the Carnival is amazing!!
We are 2 adults (Luca, my husband and I) 2 kids ( Lapo, 9 years and Eva 11 years). We are a very lively family, we like to invite our friends and our kids' friends at home or meet them somewhere. We are quite sporty and we like swimming, going to the mountains or to the seaside for a walk , playing tennis (all the members of my family play tennis!)..
I work in Livorno.
In the mornings my kids are going to school. In the afternoons they have many activities so most of the time, they are not at home... so you will have time to do whatever you like! During the school year they go to bed quite early (about 9.30 p.m.), so mostly you will relax in the evening!!!
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
We live in Livorno, near wonderful cities i.e. Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa! During the winter usually we are going to ski for one week and, as we live in front of the sea, during the summer we love to go to the beach! you can see Livorno on internet and find out that is a very nice city where to spend your time!
The Pisa airport is only 20 minutes for our house, so it is bery easy to travell.
I would like to host a very trusted person, English mother tongue or French mother language, who helps me to manage everyday life in order to lighten my work of mother and loves children, with a caring and loving personality. I would like someone who can play with the kids, improve their knowledge of the English/French language and help on the family routine activities!
We are a friendly and loving family, and we will take care of you as a part of our family. We love cultural exchange because I think we have to learn from each other. We will teach you as much as we know about our culture, our city, our language and about eveything you like to learn.
italian - english
You will have your bedroom with a queen size bed. Our flat is quite big: we have three bathrooms, 5 bedrooms, a huge living room with a wonderful view of the sea, and some more rooms (laundry ecc..).
During your spare time you can visit Tuscany: the train station is very close and in 1H you can reach many wonderful destinations (Pisa is 15 minute far; Firenze is 50 minutes far; Lucca is 30 minutes far...);
In the summer you can enjoy a very clean and clear sea and vist some Island in front of our coast: Gorgona, Capraia, Isola d'Elba..
The winter is not very cold here, so you can can also play outdoor sports.
Hope to hear very soon from you and don't esitate to ask as much information as you want!
