Program Details

My Wife is French and we are married for 12 plus years now but I have not even tried to learn French yet. I just know a few words in French. Am now kind of desperate to learn French. A little bit of lesson every day would be a big step. And if you like to do something physical, you can also do little bits of cleaning in my home, especially with the details.
You only need to work maximum 2 hours a day. I offer your morning tea, lunch and dinner, home cooked, at my home. You can spend 4 or 5 nights to a week. And if we connect well, even longer.
No need to work on Weekends. No food is offered on Sundays, sorry.
I can give you detailed help on things to visit and how.
I can also take you to couple of off beat beaches, to market etc to visit.
You can even make a day trip and back to Alleppey backwaters from here.

Activities & Shift

Helping me with French would be your main activity. Which you could split into one or two separate sessions or even take it through during my daily life, without any schedule being attached to it.
Cleaning is secondary and you may decide to do it, if you wish to for an hour a day or so and at your disposal.
You are free to decide your times on when to do things and when to relax etc.

Smoke outside home, if you want to.
