    Hi, I'm Elis, I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, I'm a university professor of Brazilian culture, history and cinema. I found this platform very interesting and for wanting to be a Workaway in Europe I decided to be a hostess first in my house.
    My interest is the cultural exchange, mainly with natives of English, because I need to develop in the conversation to be able to travel.
    I have a very nice family, who lives nearby, in a small town where I always go.
    A workaway here could help me improve English, me and my friends, that is, talking and learning a little about Brazilian culture, can help keep the house clean, nothing that requires much effort, I live alone and the house is not very large, the volunteer could enjoy the city, get to know Rio de Janeiro well and get involved in other projects if you want.

    I prefer to receive native speakers of English at this time, to help me develop the language.

    What else ...
