  • Description


    Hello! Bonjour!

    We are a Chinese family (3 kids: 13, 8 and 5) living near Paris where the common transport takes you less than 15 minutes to go to the center of Paris.

    We are looking for one native English speaker full of energy who can help us +/-3 hours per day.
    The help is mainly consisted of teaching English to our kids, eventually playing with them, and doing some small housework.

    For example, during school days,
    Teaching English to our two kids after school.

    In exchange, we can provide you a room in our apartment. We can also share our Chinese/French culture/language with you if you wish: reading, writing... but of course, we will not force you to study Chinese LOL. Though we do speak mainly Chinese at home, we will be more than happy to help if you have any questions about the french language and french culture.

    The diner can be provided if you want to eat with us. Breakfast and lunch are not served, but you have access to the kitchen.

    For the people sensible to "noise", we need to tell that our boy practices piano, our daughter plays the cello. And we have difficulties dealing with the disorder, we like to put things back after use and keep our apartment tidy and clean.

    Otherwise, we accept the house exchange during the school holidays.

    Do not hesitate to write to us :)
