Hello! Welcome! Short-stay or long-stay guests :) Please note: $850/month includes 5 hours week/ private ESL lessons (in-home) in addition to speaking English everyday! private room in beautiful, clean house (non-smoking), good food and lots of fun things to do & sightseeing. Your English will improve quickly here as I will give you individual ESL attention and you will be speaking everyday and learning a lot! I will provide you with emails/ contact of previous guests and students to ask them about their experience. Also, you can rent the room without ESL as an option too for $750 with meals/ food provided.
I am a qualified ESL teacher that has taught ESL and lived in Japan, Korea (Busan), Mexico, Indonesia and here at home in Vancouver & Toronto, Canada. I am Canadian, from Toronto.
My family decided to move north of the city to a smaller, beautiful town. It is very nice here. Friendly people, safe, clean air & water, and a beautiful house for guests to stay in along the river, in town. You can walk to shops, restaurants, library,hospital, supermarkets, museum, art gallery...
If you would like to study art at - Fleming College - Haliburton School of the Arts (a world famous arts college) also there is Fleming College at Trent University in Peterborough about an hour from here. Please let me know and I will put you in touch with contacts at the school if you wanted to stay longer and apply for a student visa. Otherwise, we are happy to welcome those on tourist visas as well, for a visiting experience. The house is clean and beautiful in a quiet area.
You will have a private room, with bed & desk, and we have a nice living room with a lot of great books and ESL study books too, and dvds to practice your listening skills. I can arrange to drive you to Haliburton (Monday-Friday) if you want to attend the Arts College. The house is shared with other students (preferably not from the same country if you wish to improve your English skills faster) also, sometimes there are students from the Arts college renting a room, so you can speak with them and make Canadian friends easier... I will make sure there is good food in the fridge, breakfast food for you to eat (cereal, bread, bagels, juice, yogurt, fruit...) and lunch to eat at home or to take with you if you are going to school or out for the day... dinner will be prepared for you. Healthy, good food! I am including 5 hours/ week of private ESL instruction at home for you. If you would like more hours (10/ 15 hours a week) that is also an option. We will take you places and show you around the area and sightseeing. You will be included in our life and the community.
We also have a farm about a 10 minute drive from the house and you would be welcome to join us there to learn about organic gardening and to help with the garden (if you like) and help pick fresh vegetables for your food :) We also have chickens, goats and pigs on the farm for you to see.
In the summer, you are welcome to join us to go fishing, swimming and relax at the lake...
In the winter, there are many activities also - ice fishing, snowshoeing...that you could try. The Fall Leaves season is BEAUTIFUL here and there are many tourists coming in buses to this area to see the colours. We can arrange to go to Toronto and Niagara Falls as well if you would like.
I am available to pick up and drop off at the airport. Please contact me for more information, photos and we could also meet via Skype. Thank you, we hope you can join us and have a great experience here! The Wesley family.
