    Description

    We are an intercultural family, my daughter (eleven years old) was born in Perù.
    My husband and I are tax advisor.
    We work hard during the day so in the evening we like to relax, having dinner together, speaking each other. we love travelling so we can suggest a lot of place to go. My husband and I deeply love travelling and getting in contact with different cultures, and we are trying to pass down this passion to our daughter.
    We love to speak about art, travel, music.
    We have a little dog.
    We are looking for a female volunteer, who could stay and play with our daughter speaking only English with her during summer time for two months in the afternoon ( 5 hours / day 5 days/ week at the end of may- end of july ) .We prefer to host an english mothertongue from Australia, South Africa, New Zeland, The USA, Canada, Ireland or Britain. We practise a lot of sports :trekking, skiing, playing tennis; my husband has the private pilot license for flying with ultralight aircraft .
    During summer time my daughter loves to go to the Tennis club for playing tennis or swimming. The volunteer could enjoy the swimming pool or Tennis court playing with her.
    The volunteer could enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. We need a little help to tidy volunteer's room and bathroom!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a small city, the land where is born parmesan cheese.
    The main street is Via Emilia, an ancient roman way of communication. Reggio Emilia is between the see and the mountain (Appennini), so you can reach the sea side or the mountain in 1 hour.
    You can reach school, university, shop railway station walking (5 minutes) o by bike.
    Reggio Emilia is in Emilia Romagna, known for the quality of its food, for monuments and for friendly people.
    The volunteer could learn a new language, Italian, the language of Opera. In Reggio Emilia was born Montessori, one of the most famous teacher (method Montessori).
    Reggio Emilia is half an hour from Bologna and Parma, 40 minutes from Milano, one hour from Firenze.
    During summer time we travel in Sardinia (a beautiful isle in the centre of Italy) and the volunteer could come with us for free to discovery the beautiful beaches there.
