We're a crazy beautiful family of 6 (parents + 4 boys). We love life, community, learning, technology, food, wine, sports, and games. Our boys are aged 13, 12, 9 and 5.

Help in the house
We're a family originally from Cape Town, now living in the UK. You'd have your own room and bathroom. Both my wife and I were exchange students to France and Belgium, so we both speak semi-fluent french. We loved the relationships we built with our host families, and would love to give that opportunity to our boys and the right student.
We live in a beautiful little village called Penn. We're about 30 minutes away from London by train. I run a social media analytics business, and my wife has been settling the kids into new schools but hopes to start work soon. We're looking for someone to come and spend 2-6 months or so with us, to help with the boys, and to help with general stuff around the house. The benefits to the boys are meeting someone from a different culture, the benefit to you is living in a beautiful home in the English countryside, learning about a South African family now living in London, making new friends here, and living first hand near one of the most exciting cities in the world.
Kids are in school from 8h30 to 3pm so that time would be your own free time. We would need help in the afternoons, some evenings and some Saturday and Sunday mornings. You would need a driver's licence, and must be over 22 years old (insurance is very expensive for younger drivers).
We're looking for someone to start asap, and ideally stay with us long as possible.
Own room with a double bed, and a bathroom with own basin, toilet and shower.
This is London! So much to do. 2 months is almost too short. It's an expensive city though. Return train trip into the city is about £22 or so. You'll have access to a car, and so can explore neighbouring towns like Oxford.
