  • Descripción


    My name is Robin, I'm English and have lived in Brazil for 25 years. My Brazilian wife, Maria, & I have two kids (Joana, 10 & Tom, 5). I own, run & teach in a small - at the moment, online -English language school in Resende & so can use native English-speakers to help teach at the school.

    We also love other cultures & hosting people from other cultures teaches us about their native cultures & language(s). We have a piano, so if you want to play, learn to play or/& teach us how to play, it's all good!

    Spanish native speakers are also welcome this year, as we'd like to learn to speak Spanish.

    My wife and I also run a guesthouse, with 3 chalets and a main house, in Visconde de Mauá, (1 hour away in the mountains). If you'd like to do gardening work there, cutting grass, tending flower beds, pruning, watering, and/or if you know how to plant, we're interested in offering a Workaway stay there. This is more remote, so although we would offer basic foodstuffs, you'd need to be more self-reliant, cooking for yourself and getting around.

    So, to recap: the workaway in Resende is group-oriented and the workaway in Mauá requires a lot of self-reliance.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    You'll learn some Portuguese with us, get an insight into Brazilian life & culture and get to see a beautiful part of Brazil, midway between Rio (2-3 hours away) & San Paulo (3.5 hours away), at the foot of the Mantiquiera mountain range, next to the oldest national park in Brazil (the Itatiaia National Park), and 2-3 hours from the lush Green Coast. You'll also learn from us to enjoy all things Brazilian: Brazilian food, music, craft cheese, cachaça & cocktails, trips to local rivers & falls (in summer).

    Workwise, you can build up a repertoire of skills to take with you, from entertaining kids, cooking, teaching to gardening & woodwork, depending on your interests and our needs.

    You need to be open to being with children. They can be noisy & needy, but they're also loving, growing people who feed off quality contact with others.

    A bit more on the guesthouse: we are in the process of growing our guesthouse business in Mauá near here. This is relatively new for us and we would be happy to receive people who are happy to work alone there in exchange for transport there and back, lodging in a chalet and basic foodstuffs. It's very beautiful but requires work, of course, to maintain.

    In Resende: private room with ensuite bathroom in our 4-bedroom house. All food at home is included. We love cooking - & eating! - and hope to learn from you! This means we expect you to cook at least once a week for the household.

    We are health-food fans, foodies & have a fruit & vegetable garden.

    Algo más...

    During time off, you can visit local beauty spots, go for a dip in falls & rivers, get to know the local culture and visit bigger cities, like Rio and San Paulo, or go to the mountains nearby to enjoy cooler climes & a slower pace (Visconde de Mauá & Campos de Jordão), or the sea (Paraty, Ilha Grande & the Green Coast).
