  • Description


    My name is Robin, I'm English and have lived in Brazil for 25 years. My Brazilian wife, Maria, & I have two kids (Joana, 11 & Tom, 5). I own, run & teach in a small - at the moment, online - English-language school in Resende, so I can sometimes use native English-speakers to help teach. Maria is a Pilates teacher, an osteopath & physio, with her own studio.

    We've found that having a Workawayer with us tends to take a bit of the strain off our busy lives and adds another dimension to our home. We love learning about other people, cultures & languages, broadening our and our children's experience, knowledge & repertoire.

    So, although we are based in Resende, Rio de Janeiro, we like to feel we're citizens of the world and are thankful to Workaway & our Workawayers for giving us this opportunity.

    NB.: Spanish native speakers are welcome, as we'd like to learn Spanish.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    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).
    There is a local climbing community & centre we can introduce climbers to.

    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.

  • Hébergement


    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. We source organic açaí locally and forage regularly for fruit (papaya, acerola, blackberries), & avocados (January to June).

    Autres infos...

    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).

    It's worth noting here that this depends, to a large extent, on the Workawayer's proactivity. We will do everything we can to facilitate.
