Being Au pair means that you travel and discover a new culture by living with a foreign family.
You have your own bedroom and a private or shared bathroom, you follow language courses and earn money.
In exchange you have to look after the kids for 25 hours by week with 1 day off minimum by week.
You have plenty of free time to discover the country and meet new friends. You have one week paid holiday every 4 months.
To be au pair is to be a companion of children in everyday tasks such as the journey to school, extra activities, homework help, babysitting (in the evening), bath and light household tasks of the daily life (empty the dishwasher, prepare meals, children's laundry).
