  • Description


    Join us during our summer holiday in the mountains, in a village at 1000 meters above sea level and 1 hour away from Milan! And help us to improve our English.
    We are an easygoing and friendly family of four: Elisa and Martino and their sons Davide aged 10 and Leonardo 8 years old. We live in Milan and we have an apartment in Moggio (LC), a village close to Como lake.
    Elisa, the mum, will spend 3 weeks in July in this mountain village from 8th July on. Martino, the dad, will join during the weekend.
    During the day we will spend time in parks or go for walks in the beautiful paths of the area.
    Elisa e Martino speak fluent English. Davide and Leo are two cheerful, polite and affectionate children. They love playing outdoors and playing sports. They only know the basics of English and we would like them to improve simply by spending 3 weeks with a native English speaker.

    We are non smokers and we don't want a smoker volunteer. We haven't any pets.

    Preference: girl between 18 and 35 years old.

  • Help


    Main tasks will be:

    - Speaking and teaching English to the boys
    - Accompany them to the park, near our apartment, playing, chatting and spending time with them.
- Personal qualities we value are honesty and neatness.

    We expect first of all that you are a person with a strong smiling attitude and capacity and enjoyment in dealing with children.
In general, we therefore ask you not so much to be with the children (and us), but to actively interact with them
We'd like you to be part of our family, sharing our everyday life in an easy and funny way.
