Hi! I'm Mercè. I run a project teaching English to kids with some kind of learning difficulties (mainly dyslexia or AHDH) (actually 80% of kids attending) .
I'm really passionated about it. I have put my effort on this project since January 2017 and I can see where is going and all the help I can bring out with it.
Last year I moved to new premises and I'm thrilled about giving the kids some time with English native speakers for them to enjoy of some cultural exchange and improve their fluency and gain confidence.
By staying a short time in Figueres, you'll get to enjoy all the cultural and outdoor activities going on in this area at this time of the year (in winter time mountain and trekkings are very popular) And of course, if you want to improve your Spanish, here I am!
I’m looking for a creative, fun, easy going, and sensible volunteer and of course, a kid lover.
I do need native English speakers, as activities are conducted in English.
I offer a laid-back atmosphere where games, crafts, cultural exchanges and all sort of speaking activities are welcome.
I need help from tuesday to friday for about 3 hours during afternoon time.
At home, basic food such as full breakfast, vegetables, rice, pasta, eggs...will be provided (not fish or meat included) and you’ll have a spacious room for yourself and rest of the house to share with me and a young and energetic dog. So you better like animals and have lots of patience :-)
Hope to hear from you!
