au pair/ host family

Being Au pair is an enriching experience where you learn not only the language but the lifestyle, culture is also shared... During your stay you will be another member of the family.

au pair

Anyone who wishes to be an Au Pair must have child management skills and be good with children because this will be your primary task.

You must be respectful, friendly, polite and, naturally, interested in being involved in the daily life of the host family.

The programme may last from between 1 and 3 months in the summer to a full year. The maximum possible duration is 2 years. It is important to highlight that an Au Pair is not a household employee, rather a person interested in studying our language and our culture. The idea of the Au Pair is duly regulated internationally and considered to be an "intercultural activity":
