    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you like mountain, trekking and outdoor activities, in the Pyrenees you will find a lot of things to do and discover. Surrounded by small towns with an eminent local economy based on tourism, livestock and agriculture. In summer the climate is very sunny and tourists come from all sides to enjoy the calm of the mountains, small villages, wildlife and also the fiestas of the villages.

    We need help to take care of a boy (14) and a girl (8).

    We can understand each other in English, but if you do not speak Spanish you can help the children learn the language.

    The basic tasks would be to accompany the children, especially the 6 years, in their daily activities (swimming, bathing in the river, hiking, art) in summer are both on vacation or simply accompanying them in their needs.

    The idea is to be in charge of them being at home or going out in the open air inventing what they want to do. Meet basic needs and above all enjoy with them. Cook sporadically and help with small chores around the house. They are really nice and cheerful.

    Necesitamos ayuda de una chica o chico joven que se pueda comunicar en español o en inglés. Nos podemos entender en inglés y si no domina el español puede ayudar a los niños a aprender el idioma. Las tareas básicas serían acompañar a los niños, sobretodo la de 8 años, en sus actividades diarias, en verano estan los dos de vacaciones. La idea es que se quede a cargo de ellos estando a casa o saliendo al aire libre inventando lo que quieran hacer. Atender las necesidades básicas y sobretodo disfrutar con ellos. Cocinar esporadicamente y ayudar con pequeñas tareas de la casa.
