We are a retired couple living in Bogota - Colombia. We would like to learn and practice basic English. We live in a very central part of Bogota, in a fantastic and green neighborhood. If you want an authentic insight of how a Colombian family lives, this is the place to come! Of course you can also enjoy the touristic places not far from here.

This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We propose 3 hours a day teaching us basic English and 2 hours helping with the house work. We prefer English native speakers with some teaching experience or some patience at least :). You'll have the opportunity to practice and improve your Spanish with us and around, since we are in a residential neighborhood.
IT skills are a bonus.
Obviously, we expect you to clean after yourself.
Private room in our three bedroom flat in a seventh floor, shared bathroom. We are non smokers and smoking is not permitted.
The apartment location is ideal for exploring Bogota: very central, but in a residential and safe neighborhood. You could even walk to the city center, it would take you about 40 minutes. There are plenty of buses too. We can give you many ideas of what to see and visit (and how to get the best prices), in this vibrant capital.
We stay most time at home, and are very known in the neighborhood having lived here for about 60 years.
Bogota's weather is mild: it ranges from 10C to 20C during the day, but it can go to down to 3C at nights.
