The Boleis Family

this is the family i will be a part of for as long as i am in
Spain. they all speak english to one degree or another which is very nice. i will be bringing books, videos, cartoons, movies etc so they can be exposed to american culture as well as listen to english constantly. they seem like a lot of fun by their e-mails. apparently the little one in the middle is dieing to meet me :) the father and mother are both accountants, but the mother now takes care of the family. i look forward to getting to know them.

I've Been Picked

a host family chose me from all the profiles they were given to preview. from their info sheet they sound nice. i am so excited! they live about 30 minutes northeast of madrid and have 3 children. 1 girl (12) and 2 boys (10 and 7). they want me to teach 3 hours a day, monday through friday. and the best part of all is that they want me to stay as long as i want to. i'll keep you updated as i learn more about them.
