My name is Rod and I am 51 years old. I am a teacher and work at a high school. I speak Spanish (mother tongue), Norwegian, English, and a little bit of French. Now, I am spending a sabatical year in the countryside near Quito with my family. My interests are music, languages, sport, cooking, books, dansing, gardening, and so forth. I like traveling and experiencing new countries and cultures, and at the same time practicing languages.

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
You can experience Ecuador in many ways. Beautiful nature: mountains, forests, lakes, sea, cities, towns, indian markets and so forth. If you are interested in learning the Spanish language, dancing or cooking, it is the correct place. You can also experience the countryside life since I have a property out of the city.
ENGLISH AND FRENCH NATIVE SPEAKERS REQUIRED!!
I need help with languages, English and French mostly. I don't practice these languages regularly, so I need to speak constantly with someone. I'm lacking both accuracy and fluency. So, I am looking for a native speaker of these languages.
You can also help me out with gardening, building projects and general house maintaince in the city (Quito) and in the countryside (2 hours from city).
