We are a friendly family, Mum (Marta) Dad (Alphons) and 1 daughter called Laura aged 13 who live in a village called Castelldefels very near Barcelona, 25 minutes driving. It is well communicated by bus and train. We live in a house near the beach with garden and sharing swimming-pool with 4 neighbours. Mum and Laura can speak English.
We have all the days free, so we can be good tourist guides to show you Barcelona and surroundings and also the catalan coast. If you want also to practise Spanish you can have conversations with Alphons, who doesn't speak English.
We want someone aged between 19 and 22 who comes from an english-speaking country. The person will have to speak English all the time with our daughter. We would like to share our daily life and experiences with the person who will live with us. Laura doesn't want English grammar classes. It's only oral practise and she wants to go to the beach, to the village, to play differents sports or to visit Barcelona but always speaking English.
We want you to keep tidy your room.
Catalan, Spanish, English, and a little French
The volunteer will have a private room with a single bed and a bathroom to share only with our daughter. The volunteer will be able to use the rest of the house such as the kitchen, the dinning room, the garden and the swimming- pool. In the house we have Wifi and we don't have pets. The volunteer will also have all the meals covered but not other possible expenses like train, bus, etc...
We are a family who have travelled a lot. We are open-minded. We like to be tourists in our own country and cities so we make a lot of excursions and the volunteer can come with us in our car if wanted. It will be our first experience with volunteers and we are looking forward to it and wish to give a very good impression.
Laura is an outstanding student and very kind and good girl. She is friendly and has good relations with everybody.
