My wife, my 5 y.o. daughter and me are returning to Italy after two years abroad, where my daughter attended an international kindergarten with an intense English program
Now, since we are coming back to a country where English is spoken (to my best estimate) by 0,05 percent of its population, we would like her to keep it up by having somebody to practice it with, by playing with her and staying with her during her day at home, helping her to improve her vocabulary and explore the language.
My wife and me speak English as a second language, and we don't really use it to communicate to each other.
The person we are looking for should be a native speaker.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are an international family (I'm Italian, my wife is Czech), our daughter already speaks two languages as first languages and she's picking up English as a second language.
Good thing about us is that we can be very international but also very local at the same time.
Help will be needed mostly in the morning, when my wife and me will be busy with our jobs.
Occasionally we might need it other times of the day, according to our schedules.
Important, we require a non-smoker.
We will soon be moving into a flat in the center of the town.
At the moment (since we are coming back from abroad and we have nowhere to stay) we will be staying in the countryside in my mum's property, where there is space enough for everybody.
Since we are located in the center of Tuscany we are surrounded by many tourist attractions that can be seen in the free time.
Trains and buses often go to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and Lucca.
The station is at walking distance from home.
