  • Description


    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 just for 3 days a week, from tuesday to thursday , and for about 3 hours during afternoon-evening time.

    At home you can enjoy a large room, a cozy dinning and kitchen, and breakfast will be provided for the working days . You’ll also got to share the house with rest of the house with a young and energetic dog. So you better like animals and have lots of patience :-)

    Hope to hear from you!
