  • Description


    We are Eva, Victu, Ot (8) and Roc (6). We are looking for an English speaker to share time with our children. We want them to have as much contact to the English language as possible. Our kids speak English, Catalan and Spanish. They are very sporty and love running, cycling, playing football, swimming but also cooking, listening to stories, playing board games and any games you may come up with.

    You will find a good atmosphere at home and we like to spend time together and with friends. Having someone with us is a great way to meet new cultures without moving from home. At the weekends and on holidays we love to spend time together, playing and going to the mountain and beach (we have a campervan what allows us to be quite spontaneous when deciding where to go).

    We live in Avinyó, a small village of 2000 inhabitants half way from the mountains (Pyrenees) and the beach and Barcelona (60km away). It is surrounded by forest, so it is a great place to enjoy outdoor activities (running, cycling, swimming, fishing…). Although the town is small it has got a big sport complex with two summer swimmingpools, two tennis courts, two paddle courts and a sport center. Our house is located in the middle of the village; it has got a garage and a big terrace where kids love to play and where we have most of our breakfasts and dinners in summer.

    Something you must know about us:
    -We speak Catalan and English at home. With our friends and family we speak Catalan. However, we can speak Spanish with you if you want to improve it.

  • Aide


    We are looking for an English speaker who loves children and would like to live with a Catalan family for at least 2 weeks and help with our kids. We also expect you to be very responsible, respectful, active and with initiative.

    Your help will consist on sharing time with the kids using the English language: actively playing (not just watching how they play), reading books, going to the swimming pool, doing crafts and maybe teaching them some of your hobbies (play an instrument, do some sport, learn another language...). You are expected to help a little bit with the household tasks, to be clean and tidy as you go and to cook some days lunch.

    We prefer stays of at least two weeks (even better if they are longer). We need your help mornings from Monday to Friday from end-June until mid July and the first week of September. The other weeks and months it is much more flexible (just one or two hours at noon or in the afternoons). At the weekends (and if you need some extra day as well) you can travel around and enjoy our country. But you can also stay with us or do some travelling together.

    Avinyó is sorrouned by forest, so it is a perfect place for outdoor activities. You can borrow our bikes if you like cycling, or our fishing rods to go fishing at the resevoir. Or you can just walk in the woods, hike to the "Soldiers tower" or go to the swimming pool to swim, suntun or relax while reading a book.

    Barcelona is an hour away from Avinyó and at the weekends there is a bus there.
