  • Description


    +++ at the moment we are looking for someone who could stay with us since March 2024, speaking English with our kids (not necessarily a native english speaker but someone with very good English and maybe a teaching expertise), and help us around the house.

    The kids asked to host a boy, but Lucia would be happy to host a girl, so if you are female but think you can handle a couple of male teenagers write us anyway!

    ATTENTION PLEASE: we have 2 cats now! :)

    The person we are looking for should have a legal permit/visa and very good English as our purpose is that our children improve it. For this reason, we would like to host a proactive person who plays and does things with them, as we think this is the best way to learn, so for example playing drums and/or D&D is a plus!

    We also like very much to host people who like to travel and bring the world to our home :)
    So, if you would like a long stay in a wonderful city allowing you to easily travel all around Italy and Europe, please write us!

    We are a friendly (and messy and noisy :P) family of 4 living near the center of Milan, who need somebody speaking English with the kids and help us with the housechores :)
    The little lovely rascals are both males: Giorgio (14 years old) needs to chat in English with an older friend :) and Enea (12 years old next January) needs someone to improve his basic language skills.
    We already hosted 24 aupairs/workawayers (you can see some of them in the pictures with us), and we really loved the cultural exchange!

    Lucia likes to cook and is very happy to make you some typical Italian dishes, and we would love to try the cuisine of your country, if you want to :)
    We speak Italian, of course, and English. Giorgio is fluent while Enea English's skills are still limited but he’s picking it up quickly thanks to our au pairs, so we'd love to have you continue to improve their language skills.

    Milan is a great city with a busting cultural and nightlife scene, convenient access to other attractive locations in Italy and Europe, and excellent transportation options (it's well connected by both train and planes), and from which you can easily go and visit other beautiful places in Italy and Europe. We merely request that you follow the COVID-19 regulations at all times.
    We have a single room available, with a bathroom.

    What else ...

    We live close to Milan city center, just across the street from a nice park and from the underground connecting to train stations and airports. It's a well connected area, with a lot of shops, cinemas and other hangout spots for young people (nearby Navigli) - and an Australian pub that holds English-speaking nights, that one workawayer we hosted discovered for us :DDD
