  • Description


    We are a family consisting of a father, mother, 2 children: David (32 years old) and Daniela (25 years old). We also have two miniature pincher dogs and two kittens. We live in Tunja, Boyacá, Colombia, a city two hours from the capital (Bogotá).

    We like to learn languages and culture, and we want to host a person who can help us with it.

    I, Daniela, have had the experience of hanging out with volunteers in the English Institute that I attend, and we would like to learn more and be able to practice. That is why we have decided to welcome someone who wants to help us and to travel!

    What we really want is easy, since it's only to help us with learning a language. At the same time, we will help you learn Spanish, as well as teach you everything about our culture such as Colombian food, music, society, and others.

    The city in which we live is a historical and university city. It is the capital of our department (Boyacá), and has several places to go, including a lot of commerce. Near Tunja, there are several tourist sites with many interesting things were we can go and walk: Villa de Leyva, Paipa, Ráquira, Nobsa, Samacá, etc.


    Somos una familia compuesta por papá, mamá, 2 hijos: David (31 años) y Daniela (24 años). Además tenemos dos perritas pincher y dos gaticas. Vivimos en Tunja, Boyacá, Colombia, una ciudad a dos horas de la capital (Bogotá).

    Nos gusta aprender idiomas, y queremos recibir a una persona para que nos ayude con ello.

    Yo Daniela, he tenido la experiencia de compartir con voluntarios en el Instituto de inglés al que asisto y nos gustaría aprender más y poder practicar, por eso hemos decidido dar acogida a alguien que quiera ayudarnos y de paseo viajar!!

    Lo que queremos en realidad es fácil, puesto que es sólo ayudarnos con el aprendizaje de algún idioma. A su vez, le ayudaremos con el aprendizaje del Español, además de enseñarle todo sobre la cultura nuestra como gastronomía, música, sociedad, entre otros.

    La ciudad en la que vivimos es una ciudad histórica y universitaria. Es la capital del departamento, y tiene varios sitios a los que ir, incluyendo mucho comercio. Cerca a Tunja, hay varios sitios turísticos con muchas cosas por conocer a los que podremos ir y pasear: Villa de Leyva, Paipa, Ráquira, Nobsa, Samacá, etc.
    Update 2022:

    Daniela won't be home most of the day as before. Martha wants to learn/practice her English, so that she will be the person getting help with her English.
