    LEARN ENGLISH in my home!.

    I am living out in the rural countryside. I welcome help! My house is a mess. Cooking, dishes, cleaning, organizing, decluttering, child sitting, mowing grass, watering trees, recycling, moving furniture around, ripping out carpet, renovations, etc.. This is not an operational farm. It's just my personal home out in the countryside. I am currently setting up an eco project to help the environment and I need help. I've also planted 2000 trees on the land. I want to move towards off grid living. You can smoke cigarettes outside, drink and sit by the campfire when not working. It's not a strict place regarding that. There will be lots of food provided. I have WIFI here. I can teach you proper English because I'm a retired high school teacher. There are LOTS of things to do when you're not working.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    I can teach English to a very high level. I can teach you many idioms and increase your vocabulary. If you speak German or Spanish I also hope to learn some language from you. I used to be a high school teacher so I can teach you history and social sciences. I love to talk about those topics at the dinner table. I hope to learn about your country and culture as well. You can also learn how to drive a vehicle. You can learn how to water trees and possibly do some minor renovation projects around my home. You can learn how to declutter a home and organize stuff.

    I am a living out in the countryside. I really welcome help. My home is a big mess. I'm overwhelmed. My house is a mess. I need help with cooking, dishes, cleaning, organizing, decluttering, child sitting, teaching Spanish, mowing grass, watering trees, recycling, moving furniture around, ripping out carpet, renovations, etc.. This is not an operational farm. It's just my personal home out in the countryside. I am currently setting up an eco project to help the environment and I need help. I've also planted 2000 trees on the land. I want to move towards off grid living. If you don't like doing hard physical labor I can try to get you doing something on your laptop.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    You would be staying in a private room with a double sized bed. It's a bedroom in my home. You'd be sharing the home with myself, my 2 young sons and other volunteers. It's a shared bathroom and kitchen but you can obviously have a private bed. If you prefer you can sleep in an old unheated camping trailer out in the back yard. If many volunteers come you might have to sleep on the couch. Anyway, my sons and I have our own private bedroom so you will not share a bedroom with us. Food is all included and you can eat as much as you like. Only meat and dessert is portioned. You do not need to pay for any food or accommodation while here.. You can either cook or I will cook. We will have breakfast. lunch and supper. I will provide junk food snacks in the evening as well. I'm living here with my 2 sons (4 and 5 years old) Hopefully I will get some volunteers to help so there might be a few volunteers here. You will be very safe here. I am a school teacher and can pass a vulnerable sector police check. I am trustworthy man and it's important to me that you feel safe and comfortable here. If you stay here you will be treated like a member of the family. Don't expect me to be entertaining you all the time. You can hang out with the other volunteers or have fun independently. I typically work 16 hours per day. I will give you whatever sporting equipment you need as well as tips on what to do.

    Please understand there is no public transport to or from my home. My home is out in the rural countryside 10 km from the city. It is a grain farm but you will NOT be doing any farming here. That is handled by a professional farmer. Be aware that my house and property are cluttered. Part of the clean up is to to declutter the property. If you are really bothered by clutter then this is not the place for you. There are no animals here other than 9 outdoor cats. There are nature parks in the area and I have a massive amount of land here. So you'll be surrounded by nature, trees, birds, animals, etc. I also drive into Edmonton regularly. You can get a free ride into the city IF I'm going anyway. Unfortunately I will not be driving you to the city if I don't need to go (you can call a taxi or pay me $50 to drive you if you can't wait until I'm driving to the city). Sorry but gas is expensive these days. For $20 I'll drive you to the closest bus stop on the periphery of the city. You could also take a bicycle to the city. There is nightlife and LOTS to do in Edmonton. There is a museum and the Edmonton river valley. West Edmonton Mall is the best mall in the World. You can smoke outside and drink alcohol if you like. I'm not a strict host at all when it comes to that. You can party and do what you like here but go to sleep at 23:00.. If we go to the nightclubs in the city we will get back to the farm at 3:00 am. I assume on your time off you'll be watching movies in the television room or using your own laptop to use the WIFI. There is also a campfire outside. You can play soccer or American football in the back grassy field. I have LOTS of sporting equipment and some bicycles to go cycling. There is also a brand new multi million dollar sport complex just a few kilometres away.

    I have a great WIFI connection with unlimited usage. There is a big comfortable living room with couches for you to chill on and work. If you need a desk we'll set one up for you. If you need a private quiet room I'm sure it can be arranged for you.

    You can come with ANY size camper van or camping trailer. I have LOTS of room here. You can plug into my electricity. You can dump your sewage out in the field. You can have a fire outside. You can have complete privacy from me and everyone else if that's what you want.

  • Possibilité d'accueillir les animaux

    Possibilité d'accueillir les animaux

    You can bring any animals you want. But they won't come into my home. I have 9 cats here already that stay outside.. If you have a dog it will have to be friendly with my 4 year old and 5 year old boys. I do have one room in the house which animals could come into. And if you stayed in a camping trailer outside you can have animals in there too.
