  • Description


    We are a family of four, parents and two children; Joseba of 14 years old and Ane of 12.
    As parents we love being with our children by teaching and learning with them.
    Our aim is for them to practise the english they are studying and to continue their development during the summer.
    We need and would like having with us a friendly and responsible girl who likes languages and share the same, of a similar age or something older than ours.
    She has to speak English with them, go cycling if she likes, to the park, to the pool ... Always agreeing with them and with the limits established by the family.
    She doesn’t have to do any job in particular, if she likes cooking and wants to collaborate can do it.
    We want you to feel family and totally clothed with us; We don’t want people with no standards in any way, we want you to feel comfortable and enjoy your stay in our country and in our house and if you wish you can repeat the experience in the coming years.
    During the summer we live in a house in the north of Burgos in Spain, is a detached house consisting of three rooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom with a beautiful garden. It is a rural, mountainous area where you can enjoy nature. We like quiet, walking, hiking and rest.
    We’ll be more than happy to share our daily life with you, if you are an open, talkative, responsible and active person who loves teaching in English and share their culture.

    Nothing special. Our children do not need any help, we are the parents to attend all their needs. The aim is to help with English and enjoy the stay of cultural exchange, reading, playing, walking, chatting in English and knowing the beautiful places around us.
    If you have any other questions or you would like more information contact with us.
