    I need someone to practice languages, and especially English, with!! I'm eager to advance my proficiency in spoken English. Just a little time every day having conversation after finish work, would be good for me.

    Hello! My name is Francesc. I live in a small agricultural town called Aitona near Lleida, Catalunya. (Aitona is two hours by car from the Pyrenees and about the same from Barcelona.) I live alone in a large house (simple, but well equipped).
    My two daughters (19 and 25 y.o.) frequently visit and join me in activities such as hiking or mushroom hunting.
    My pasion is learning languages. This is why I enjoy hosting people from around the world and do language exchange.
    I can host anyone from single persons to couples, possibly even couples with children. If you want, I can help you improve your Spanish or Catalan. My town, Aitona, is arguably the fruit production capital of Europe. The town is sorrounded by swathes of orchards- peaches, apricots, pears, apples, plums, olives, almonds.....In the spring the orchards light up in blossoming colours, attracting visitors from all over the world. During this and even other times, the orchards are a nice place for a stroll.
    Nearby Lleida is one of the oldest cities in Catalunya. Its prominent monument, The Seu Vella cathedral, dates back to 1203.
    I speak Catalan and Spanish wich I am happy to share in exchange for some English, French or German.

    There really is no ¨work¨that I ask of workawayers other than they help with washing dishes after we have eaten a meal together, that they keep their room clean and tidy and that they clean up after themselves.

    Although my mother tongue is Catalan,I grew up learning both Catalan & Spanish at the same time. Most of the people in summer are not natives, they speak mostly Spanish (castellano), also Moroccan and Romanian. Of course we can help you to improve your Spanish and Catalan. We can also show you all the stages of the fruit trees, from the trees in flowers, until the fruit gets to the market of your hometown.

    First of all, as I don't have too much free time, and right now my goal is to improve my English language skills, spending a little time speaking before, during and after, dinner, would be good enough for me. If we also have time for going a long stroll on te river side, much better! I work as a bus driver doing regular services around Catalunya, Which is why I spend long hours a day away from home. Also, I am still studying, attending classes twice a week becouse I'm eager to advance my proficiency on it.
