Pennington, New Jersey (PressExposure) March 27, 2009 -- All over the world there are people who want to learn English. In many countries, English is a required language course to prepare young people for doing business with a large number of economically important countries. In others, knowing English can provide people with a valuable skill that makes them more marketable in the industry of their choosing.
Additionally, families from other countries who must soon make the move to an English-speaking country may need crash courses in English from a native speaker so they will be prepared for their new environment. With so many opportunities to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) abroad, the only thing stopping more people from choosing that path is a lack of housing arrangements and financial support.
For people who have always dreamed of teaching ESL abroad or who would be willing to teach English in exchange for the priceless of experience of living in a foreign country temporarily, a new web site may have the solution they need.
Host & Care was developed as a network of members who could provide assistance to one another and to provide valuable opportunities to good for other members to pass up on. For example, a family living in Germany needing an ESL instructor might offer free room and board to a member from the United States who is interesting in living in the country or in seeing more of Europe. Both parties get something they want or need but at an affordable price.
To protect both parties, Host & Care offers affordable background and references checks and provides a wide range of Web 2.0 communication and interaction options. Neither party is required to provide long-term tutoring or boarding but can work out the details of their arrangement together to meet both their needs effectively.
Host & Care was founded by Lidia Nash, a Certified Information Technology Professional (CITP) and CPA, in 2008. The company was designed as a free online community that assists in connecting people in need of services with those in need of accommodations. The overreaching mission of the company, according to Nash, is to help people improve their lives. The community is open to people from all over the globe.
