We are a Thai - Spanish - Chinese family. Our family language is English. We enjoy food and a relaxed conversation at home, doing sports and a night of live jazz music from time to time.
We live in a peaceful city called Zaragoza with our twin, 8-y-o boys, who are half Chinese. Zaragoza offers nice food and quality of life. For example, there's very little pollution and people like to go out for tapas, drinks or sports.
We would like to host a lady with Mandarin as mother tongue so that she can continue helping our children to learn that language. We think our offer is appropriate in particular if the guest wants to learn Spanish because the local university offers high-quality intensive language courses.
