  • Description


    We are a nice family in Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon - Vietnam). My mom is retired, my sister is working in a rubber group. I'm working in a media company that me and my friend co-founded and having myself a startup project. I'm learning Mandarin, that's also why I signed up for Workaway.

    I'm looking for a Mandarin speaker to come stay in my house for free, in exchange I will just ask for some hours a day for the guest to speak to me in Mandarin, help me learn the language.

    I speak good English. I'm a bit famous in Vietnam :), our facebook fanpage got 600k + followers :)

    My experience as a host: I had been an Airbnb host for several years with more than 150+ positive reviews and not having any bad ones, so I'm quite experience with this.

    So, Mandarin speakers, you're very welcome :)
