    I really think we are a warm and happy family and we will try to do our best to make you feel like at home. You will learn Spanish and Catalan if you wish... We will be very happy to show you our language, culture and places that we love. We are really active family over the week-ends. We go to the mountain, to the sea, to visit our friends, etc... We also go to the North of Catalonia to spend a few days there, where you will be invited to join with us of course.

    We look for a happy and warm english speaker person to teach english and look after our children (7 years old and 3 years old)

    We would like to let you know that it is important for us you speak English with our son, We have had English speaker nanny before and my son understands almost everything in English, but he doesn't want to talk in English anymore.... :-(
    But I really think he will speak English with you in a few days without no problem.
    On the other hand we can teach you Spanish, I think you will learn it for sure because here in the village there are a few people who speak English, not many... Also you will be involved in our weekend activities, if you want!! :-)

    I expect you give me a hand in daily activities.

    We have a cleaner so it is not expected from you to clean the house.

    I have a moto available for you to move around, but you need international driving license to drive it. Also, there is train station close to our house, so you can go to Barcelona city or other nice villages around by yourself if you want. (it takes 50min to arrive to Barcelona town centre by train).
