    Description

    We are a family with 2 girls (twins), they are 13 years old. We would like somebody who speak English with them.
    I am a civil engineer and I work in a public company and my partner works in marketing.

    Last seven years volunteers have been with us. The experience has been perfect. We think is necessary repeat the experience to get the girls improve their English . Besides, thy are learningFrench.It would be perfect is you are English mother tongue and fluent in French!

    We live in Santiago de Compostela, a small town localised in the north of Spain (Galicia). Santiago is quite and very beautiful place, UNESCO World heritage . Do you know the way of St. James?
    We live in a comfortable house in the countryside, but very close to the city centre, about five minute by bus and there are bus stop one minute far on foot.

    We need a english speaker preferent irish or british, but the most important is your profile fits with us. I think you must love speding time with kids and get along with them. Encoraging the girls to speak, read and write in English as much as posible must be the goal.

    We prefer long periods (at least 3 months), because we think is better for the girls, but we have flexibility. If you stay at home we want that you feel as a member of the family.

    The work would be to spend time with the girls playing, speaking and teaching english. Now they can undestand and speak English quite good, but they need improve vocabulary and reading and writing skills..
    Besides, I need improve my English, so you could help to practice my speaking and writing.
