  • Description


    Our family:
    dad 45 years old (he does not speak English)
    mum 48 years old (I speak English fluently: C1)
    2 Children: boy 11 year old; boy 6 years old (they both understand English very well, and they speak quite fluently)
    We have already hosted 23 guests, therefore my kids are used to have foreign people around.
    We do not smoke and we will not accept smokers.
    We have a cat, but he lives most of the time out in our garden.
    We have a big house with a garden and a swimmingpool.
    We are a "sparkling" family, we are outgoing. We like, whenever it is possible, to do outdoor activities.
    We are a neat family, we like things to be clean and orderly!
    Once we get in touch I will be glad to send you some pictures of our family and the place where you are going to stay to your personal email address as I did with the previous workawayers.
    You will have a big bedroom just for you with a nice view and your own bathroom.
    We would like to host a talkative outgoing person to laugh and chat with.
    We are looking for a dynamic person (better if it is a boy) who could entertain my two boys advicing them interesting activities and games.
    We prefer hosting for long periods becuase we like when the guest becomes part of the family and we can build a nice relationship. Anyway, short periods will be accepted.
    We can give you a bike.

  • Help


    I would like that the volunteer could spend all the afternoons with me and my children just speaking and playing in English! She/he should follow us in our ordinary life and support our conversation.We would like to improve our English therefore we need some Language practice.
    For this reason we will accept only mother tongue English speakers.
    My sons already understand English (I talk in English with them) but they usually reply in Italian to me. I would like them to talk in English. Therefore I would like the volunteer to play, interact with them, try to involve them as much as possible in any kind of activities!
    Little help in the house is required too!
    I really care about cleanliness!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Grosseto is located in Tuscany near the coast, it is really close to the sea and not far away from the mountains for natural excurtions. So you could go to the beach or to skii. Grosseto is near Siena, Firenze, Pisa, Cinque Terre and Rome. You can easily travel to these important wonderful cities. We have wonderful hotsprings too (not too far away).
    Staying with us you could learn or improve your Italian, discover Italian habits and culture. You could also learn how to cook!
