I am 47 years old, mother of two adult children. We live in the Eastern Cape, my work is full time, though flexible, in a real estate business. I enjoy reading, art, cooking, hiking and sport, particularly tennis.
I have attempted to learn Spanish a few times, but have little practice and loose the language again very quickly.
Primarily, my needs are language practice, but I would like help gardening and maintenance.
I prefer to have people who can speak a little English as my Spanish is not that good yet!

There are many areas of the Eastern Cape to explore. Beaches and game reserves are a must visit. You will improve your English and make new friends.

If a couple or person with building experience are volunteering then handyman projects and maintenance would be much appreciated.
Breakfast and at least one other meal per day provided. I would love you to cook occasionally and teach me about your traditional dishes or simply share your favorites with us.
