    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️Hi! We are looking for a volunteer for 3 weeks only, July/August 2019 *️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️
    We are a family of four that enjoy the outdoor life; the kids, 7 and 10 years old are active and loving and they both can understand english. We live in a house with an homegarden in the north east of Italy, in a small village, Staranzano (30km from Triest, 120 from Venice) in the countryside.
    Usually during the summer we go to the beach (Marina Julia beach or Grado beach), we go in the sea with our small boat (so swim skills are compulsory ), we are going fishing, we stay home spending time in our small swimming pool in the garden or spend time in outdooor activities.
    For the last two summers we had fantastic au pairs and we had spent wonderful time together.
    We would prefer a person that has experience in teaching with children, a teacher, a student with an educational curriculum, an assistant or a trainer, willing to share their language through playing and having fun with them. We believe that teaching English in non-formal settings (e.g. in the daily routine) is highly beneficial for language.

    We will require all your teaching ability to fully immerse our kids in the english language. We are looking for a native speaker english volunteer, preferably from UK. We are not looking for a baby sitter (almost all the time one parent will be around). We are especially interested in hosting a bubbly, smiley girl with lots of initiative, a very smart and active person that loves deeply the kids and is able to stimulate and engage them in every situation of our everyday's life.
    In return we can offer a loving italian family that will welcome you as a daughter/guest. I like cooking and I always prepare healthy italian food for my family; my mother in law' has an home garden close to our house so we will pick up our harvest, fresh vegetables (salad, tomatoes, obergine, zucchini..)
    You will be able to visit beautiful places with us and alone and to enjoy the summer holiday close to the sea.
