We are a family with two kids (age 13Y and 9Y). Me and my husband work as engineer, monday to friday, and the kids are very busy with school and other activities. We live in Lecce, a beautiful town in the South of Italy, very close to the sea and full of history and fun! We look for an English-speaking friendly and sunny girl, who want to help us with the kids and their English skills!
Types of help and learning opportunitiesLanguage practiceBabysitting and creative play
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
They could find an open environment and a fresh atmosphere in our family. Our town is an amazing touristic place, with several cultural activities. We are very close to the sea and we love it so we can share with them our passion. My husband is a good cooker during free time, and he will be happy to share his cooking knowledge and secrets with them.
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Me and my husband work during the day from Monday to Friday. We would like to have a little help with them for logistics: bring them or take them to school, sports or other activities (on foot, by bike or by car). Some times we could need help for meal arrangement for the kids. However, we mainly would like them to practice English! We are looking for English mother tongues workawayers!
This host offers a language exchange
I speak English in a fluent way and I have a basic knowledge of French. We would like our kids to practice English with an English native/mother tongue workawyer.
We live in a house very close to the center, within a residential area equipped also with tennis court. From our place it is very easy to reach the center, on foot or by bike. For the traveler we can offer an independent bedroom and a bathroom with shower. The house has two kitchens, in case they are needed. We usually prepare a big breakfast before school/work in the morning for all the family. At lunch we are rarely all at home so we can arrange easy stuff for those who stay at home that day. For dinner we are all together again. We don't ask the traveler to cook, maybe just some help for heating or arrange something for the kids if we are not around.
What else ...
We would like the traveler to be around when the kids are at home, stay with them and help them practicing English. For the rest of the day, they are free to go around, in Lecce or to the sea, use our bikes, play sport(tennis court is available). It is easy to reach public transport for visits out of the town.
