Learn a foreign language!
As au pair you take part in your host family's daily life. You are forced to use the language of your host country and to listen to it during the whole day. Moreover you can train everything you learn at your language school in real life, so that your linguistic skills internalise. Soon you will speak fluently without having to search extensively for words. Your vocabulary extends and will be enriched by idiomatic terms.
Extend your horizon!
The au pair Program offers you the possibility to leave your usual way of life for a certain time and to get to know the lifestyle of other cultures. You will see and learn a lot of new things, you will meet interesting people, who make you appreciate their philosophy of life. The understanding of a foreign culture represents a great enrichment not only for your general education but also for your personality.
