An interest in learning the language once you are on your placement is the most important thing to have and you will receive subsidies from your host family to assist you financially with a language course.
Why become an Au Pair Abroad?
As a MyEducation (UK) Au Pair you will live overseas for one year. You will help the family with all the tasks to be done in a normal household while living in the family home and earning pocket money. Above all, you will take care of the family children and enjoy forming a bond with them and their parents. A role of this nature requires a person who is reliable, mature and enjoys working with young people.
It is clear that such a year as an Au Pair will change you. You may learn a new language and take advantage of a subsidy to attend some local educational classes. You will learn how to handle yourself alone in a new culture and return with an insight and experience that will benefit you in your further work and private life. As you experience how other people, live, think and raise their children you’ll discover new things about yourself, your own life and your culture.
