We are a semi-bilingual family (Spanish-English) of four, based closed to the airport in a residential area of Madrid, who would like to get our girls of 9 and 12 years of age to meet people from different nationalities and cultures while learning and practicing English.
We would like to find a friendly native English female speaker to spend some time with us this summer and help us with some English teaching and language practise with our two girls.
