We are a family of 4, dad, mom and 2 daughters. We live in a house in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, none of us smoke and we like sports very much, mainly the one played on the beach. You´ll have a room of your own and planty of public transportation nearby to go wherever you want. We all want to improve our English so we are looking for someone who can spend 4 to 5 hours a day teaching us. The house is large and we are very friendly. The olddest daughter has just spent 2 months in Scotland, so we really like travelling and metting new people. We don´t have a maid, so you have to be responsible for your laundry and the cleaning of your room. Some times we need help for the food, but the whole family helps.
We can teach you Portuguese, give you instructions about where to go. You will try our famous dishes from the Brazilian Cousine and teach you about our traditions.
We learned English in Brazil, so we don´t know many slangs, sometimes we mispronunce many words, we don´t know how to write some words and need more opportunites to practice more. There are many books and material for conversation classes taht can be used. We can provide the material, but we need someone who can correct us and force us to speak in English.
