    Hello people!!
    Would you like to come to spend some time in countryside near vineyard and kiwi fields? Would you like to visit Treviso and Venice?
    We are looking for someone that would love to play funny games with our kids helping them learning some English, someone that would like to have some English conversation with me and my husband.
    We don't really need some help with our kids in this period but we'd like that they could be involved in some English conversation playing cards or soccer or anything else on late afternoon - evening time.
    In fact they spend a lot of time at school (monday-friday from 8,30 till 16,00) and after that they practise some sport (Alvise and Edoardo soccer and Carlotta skate on monday and friday anfernoon and all of them swimming on wednesday afternoon).
    What we are looking for in this moment is someone that organize funny games for them to help the in practice of English language in real and not like a school lesson...
    We can offer hospitality for only from the start of April till the end of May and from start of September till the end of November (in this moment we don't know if we will can offer ospitality on june; absolutely we cannot offer ospitality on July and August) .
    Help request: 1-2 hour/day 3-4 days a week. all morning and Saturday and Sunday are free.
    We live in Villorba a small village close to Treviso and only 30 minutes far from Venice-Italy.
    Hope to heard from you soon,
    Viviana and Lucio

    Hi! I am Viviana and my husband is Lucio; we have three beautiful childrens: Carlotta aged 9 and Alvise and Edoardo aged 7 (twins but very different!).... I'm a condominium administrator and I like walking in the nature or just relax outside in our garden and my husband is a financial advisor that love to run and ride bicycle. We have a cat (Ninja), two big dogs (Alpha and Berta), 3 tortoise and some small fishes!!!!

    We've had many positive au pair experiences, and we would like to start a new adventure with workawayer.

    We are looking for a girl or boy who is mother tongue is English as we wish for our three children to become completely bi-lingual. Actualy they don't speak good English but we are working to help them in this. We would like you to teach them English by playing card-games, puzzles, socccer, going to the park etc…
    I can speak a quite good English, so there would be no need for you to learn Italian unless you wanted to.

    You will always have two days off a week. While you are here we would like you to help out with a little bit of housework, nothing serious, just things like hovering, emptying the dishwasher, sweeping and other normal house jobs. :D

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Treviso, our city, is a quiet town (85000 inhabitants), many people are surprised how cute it is, we don't live in the city centre, but not so far from it either, it's just about 15 minutes by bus or 30 by bike, we can provide a bike to our volunteer for the duration of the stay.

    The Summer is quite hot, Spring is ok, late Fall is sometimes really foggy and wet, Winter is not so cold but sometimes wet as well.

    We live in countryside where where there's a nice walking-cycling route in the nature between vineyard and kiwi field.

    Venice (Venezia) is just half an hour by train, while Padova and Vicenza are about one hour away.
    The same goes for seaside (Caorle or Jesolo are around one hour by bus, less if driving) and mountains, pre-alps are nearby (you can easily reach Feltre by train).
    Other cities you can quite easily reach in a longer dayly trip are Verona, Ferrara, Bologna, Trieste, Gorizia (and Nova-Gorica in Slovenia), Udine, Cittadella, Castelfranco.
