  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 children - 2 boys of 9 and 13 y.o., and a girl of 11 y.o.). I am a web programmer (working at home) and my spouse is an administrative assistant for a taxlawyer. We also have 3 cats.

    We live in a house in the city of Sherbrooke, which is close to forests, parks, bike paths and multiple services nearby.

    We are looking for a trusted person to help in the house.

    We want to improve and learn English on a daily basis during games, activities and family meals. I do speak a bit well in English. My spouse understands and speaks pretty well. Children are learning English at school; they have a very small base. I'm also learning German so I would be happy to have a chance to pratice with someone. I also study naturopathy and practice yoga and meditation (maybe I would like to teach these discipline in the future).
