    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In Sicily the workawayers could learn italian, could enjoy the city and all the many historical and artistic sites. They could enjoy also the good weather, the sea and the good food, all things that could enrich personal cultural background. So they could live a different experience living a everyday life in family. During the spare time they could study italian, visit Palermo, the sorroundings and also we could arrange some trips around Sicily together or by themselves. There is also the possibility to use my bike and go around the city. also they could try to attend ceramics, painting, cooking or italian classes.

  • Help


    The main purpose of our request is to make my four years old child learn english in a very easy way and as well I need some help with him at home and if necessary for his activities inside and outside.. I would like my son to stay with a kind person of a different country, an english mother tounge who can teach him and take care of him. It will be great! So definetly I m looking for an english mother tounge babysitter, very kind with children who could help him with his staff discovering different culyure. Sometimes it could be necessary to pick up him from or to school or accompany to other places (friends, parties, school, park ...). But it is not the a daily rule.

The bedroom available for the workawayers host is a room with guardrobe and all staff necessary and there is also a small balcony. in the flat there is also a big terrace to enjoy open air or gardening, I like plants and flowers. We are smokers but inside is not allowed smoking, only outside.
