zabolotsky-familyA family who’s 10 year old son takes English lessons from me will be happy to host a talkative English-speaking traveller, free, in exchange for a couple of hours of conversation practice per day.

The family consists of a mother who speaks passable English, her sons of 5, 10, and 15, and a father who works as an oil tanker inspector and is an avid fisherman with an in-depth knowledge of the south edge of the Kola Peninsula, who can, time permitting, take you around these places and arrange a fishing tour for you.

You can stay either in their apartment in the Niva-3 part of Kandalaksha with them, or, if there is a group of you, in a separate 2-room apartment next door [Not available starting June 2016].
