Date: 23 June 2010
We are hosting international university and ESL students and have a room available beginning October 2, 2010.
Our house is located in a pleasant family neighborhood in central Pittsburgh. It is on a quiet street. There is easy bus access to the University of Pittsburgh, CMU, Point Park University, and other major universities in the city. There is also easy access to the museums, parks, the zoo and downtown.
The rent is $600 per month, which includes two meals per day: self-service breakfast (bread, rice, etc.) and dinner. It is also possible to have housing only, no meals, for $350 per month. Guests have a private bedroom with bed and desk, linens, laundry access, wireless internet access, a shared TV, and a shared bathroom.
My husband and I have travelled widely in Asia and Europe. We also worked as ESL teachers in both China and South Korea. Because we have lived overseas, we understand many of the challenges of moving to a new country and can help a student adapt. My husband and I speak English, some Korean, a little French, Spanish and Italian, and very little Chinese. We enjoy hiking, going to the gym, cooking and learning about new people and cultures. I also enjoy art and theater, while my husband enjoys sports. At home, we often cook Asian, Western and fusion foods. We are a young family without children. We will have a dog.
Please email for more information! We look forward to meeting you!
