  • Description


    Hola! We are a family of four: mother, father, and two sons: ages 10 and 7. English is our first language. Our two sons are in a bilingual Spanish/English school, so we are seeking someone who can expose our family to the Spanish language, as we would like our kids to speak and hear as much Spanish as possible.

    We are looking for a SPANISH SPEAKER who can be with us during the school months (from August/September until May) and prefer someone for a minimum of one month up to three months.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a family of four who has visited over 25 countries in the world. We love to travel and cultural exchange. We also live less than 30 minutes from Orlando theme parks and downtown Orlando and have many cultural activities to offer to someone new to our city. Since we have two young kids we keep very busy, taking them to water parks, bowling, meeting with friends, the library, and theme parks. Our guests would be welcome to join along on anything that interests them. We also have a swimming pool and live on a lake and go out in the lake with friends often. Our neighborhood is also across the street from a biking/hiking trail that goes for more than 50 kilometers. There is a bike for you where you are welcome to explore the nearby areas.

  • Help


    We know some Workawayers don't always get a lot of interaction with their hosts, but we are looking for someone to integrate as part of our family. In exchange, we will treat you like a part of the family. We expect everyone to contribute: helping in the yard, in the kitchen, with the housework, playing with the children, etc. We want someone who fully engages with us and shares time together. If you prefer to spend time talking on your phone, eating in silence, or in your room watching Netflix — this is not the experience for you. The more engaged you are with us, the more we want to plan activities and fun things with you — and for you!

    Our ideal person is...
    -outgoing and social
    -has experience around kids, and *enjoys kids*
    -enjoys being active

    **PLEASE don't message us if you...
    -are not doing this for cultural exchange.
    -are shy and not willing to step in and help.
    -are only looking for a place to stay so you can visit the tourist attractions.
    -are opposed to healthy eating and a healthy way of life.
    -spend a lot of time on your phone and watching TV.

    In the mornings, we appreciate you interacting with the children and helping them get ready for school and, of course, speaking only in Spanish. The adults are at the house during the school week and work during the day. During this time, we would expect help with general upkeep and in the kitchen helping prepare dinner, or with any recipes you care to share. We eat healthy as much as possible and try to limit sugar (especially for our kids). We love trying new foods and are adventurous in the kitchen. (We would prefer someone who is also open to all foods.) We have a small garden where we grow various fruits and vegetables and would appreciate any help/advice if the person is knowledgeable.

    In the afternoon, we would appreciate it if you engage with the kids when they return from school, helping them with their homework and playing with them outside. Engaging with the kids and only speaking in Spanish is the most important thing for us as advancing their Spanish language skills is the reason why we do Workaway.

    We love cooking, exercising, swimming, reading books, and playing board games. We do not have cable television and instead prefer to spend time outdoors. We have a basketball court in our driveway and a tennis court and playground in our neighborhood.

    We do not drink much alcohol. We do not allow smoking or drugs.

    --If you are interested in staying with us after reading our profile, please message us with the subject line "Yes, please" with the answers to the questions below.
    1. Have you done Workaway before?
    2. Why do you want to do Workaway?
    3. When would you be looking to come, and for how long?
    4. Do you have any experience around children, and do you enjoy being around them for long periods? *Kids require a lot of energy, so we prefer someone who is energetic and fun to be around.
    5. What is your comfort level with speaking English?
    6. What would you want to do while you are in Florida?
    7. What do you like to do in your free time?
    8. Which skills are you most comfortable helping with? Example: cooking, cleaning, handy work, the garden, etc.
    9. Do you have social media? If so, can you include links to your accounts, please? (We have had some Workawayers who prefer social media over being social, and we would not be a good fit for you. The reason we do Workaway is so our children can hear as much Spanish as possible.)


    We have hosted many Workawayers, and they all have been great experiences in their own ways. We are excited to meet and share our time with you.
