  • Description


    My wife, my 8 y.o. daughter and me have returned 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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    We live in a flat in the center of the town.
    You are going to have your own private room in the house with its private bathroom.
    Anyway, we will have to use your bathroom for showering, since the other one that we use has no shower facilities at the moment.
