We're a French-English family, we have three fun bilingual kids who are 17, 14 and 11.
We live in a very nice town in the south west of France, one hour away of Toulouse and Carcassonne. David is English and works with people with learning difficulties. I'm French and work part time as an English trainer.
We live in a big house with a nice garden, very near the town centre. I tend to speak French to the kids and English to David, who only speaks English to them. The kids all go to a different school and driving them to their different activities can be hectic at times. We don't smoke and couldn't host a smoker.
Please be aware that this would not suit somebody looking to learn French. We speak mostly English at home.
We really need someone who has native level English!
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Depending on how much work I have at the time! I'm sometimes quite busy at work, and at other times work can be very slow. I'd love some help with our house and with the kids; it would be great for them to practise their English. They're also learning Spanish so that would also be a good option!
We have a spare bedroom on the ground floor of our house. There are two bathrooms, a big kitchen a sitting room and a study.
Castres is a pretty small city; it's easy to go to Toulouse by train or bus.
We all like playing games, especially cards games. We have a piano and like music.
