  • Description


    ciao! We are a family of four: mum Alessandra, dad Francesco and 2 children. Emma who is 17 (and is spending one year in England starting from September 2022) and Valerio (9). We live in Rome and are looking for an english native speaker to help with Valerio and to share a cultural experience.
    We both work and he goes to school near our home. Valerio goes to rugby three times a week, he is very active and likes to go to the park and play, but he also enjoys to play in the house.

    We found it great in our previous experience to share and learn from different cultures and languages. The girls living with us were like big sisters to our children!

    We started hosting 3 years ago and it was much better than what we expected!! we enjoy having the opportunity to breath some international atmosphere for a while! Emma's english improved a lot and Valerio understands pretty much everything although he does not speak much in english yet.
    This school year my eldest daughter is studying in England, therefore we have her bedroom available for workawayers!
    The main aim is to have English spoken in the house, mainly for my son Valerio. We also enjoy very much sharing and exchanging different cultures and habits.
    We expect some help with Valerio, but you will be free every morning and the weekends. The help will consist in picking him up from school about 3 times a week at 4.15 (you are free before that time), and take him to his activities and/or play with him. In terms of time you would be involved for about 1 hour two days and longer on the Friday (max 3 hours). Once in a while if you have no commitments in the evening we would ask you to stay home so that Francesco and I can go to the cinema or theater. This could happen only once or twice in your stay.
