An essential aspect of being an Equipeople Au Pair is to improve your English. While all our Au Pairs must have an intermediate level of English, it is advisable that if there are lessons available close by you should consider taking them. The lessons will speed up your fluency and maximise your learning experience being immersed in the language.
You should discuss the option of attending the classes with your host family prior to your arrival and preferably in your application letter.
The cost of attending English classes is entirely the Au Pairâ€™s responsibility.
