It looks like Boise is becoming more and more popular among young Basque students wanting to round up their education and expand their work experience, while sharpening their English language skills and enjoy all the friendliness and good times the city and its people have to offer.
This time, Miren, a 23 year old girl from Pamplona, is looking a host family that will host her a few months at the end of this year, from September to December 2017.
You can get in touch with her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In her own words
Hello families! I am Miren Iturri, 23 years old Basque student from Pamplona (Spain). Actually, I am studying a master called “Spanish like Foreign Language in Professional Fields” in Barcelona.
From September to December I have to do my internship as a Spanish teacher in a college and I have decided to do in Boise. There are many reasons why I want to go there but the most important one is because I am Basque and I would like to live a Basque experience out of Basque Country. For me is very strange that Basque language is spoken in United Stated but at the same time it is awesome to know there is a bit of my culture across the Atlantic.
The only thing that I need is a family that welcomes me at home. I have enough experience living with other family because I have been living three months in Australia like AuPair. I was taking care of three sweets kids and it was an incredible experience. We enjoyed together and sometimes, I teach them some Spanish and Basque. In addition, before studying this master, I have studied Primary Education and I have to tell you that I love kids and also teaching.
If you want to have fun, have a different experience and learn some languages, I am here to teach you. I would love to repeat that experience and to grow up as a person and professional.
Thank you so much!
