An essential aspect of being an Equipeople Au Pair is to improve their English.Â Though Equipeople Au Pairs does not oblige Au Pairs to follow English lessons, they should be given the opportunity to do so by their host family.
We strongly urge Au Pairs to discuss the option of attending the classes with their host family prior to their arrival and preferably in their application letter.
The cost of attending English classes is entirely the Au Pairâ€™s responsibility.Â Some families do choose to contribute towards the lessons, but this is entirely at your own discretion.
