Au Pair Definition - Who is an Au Pair?

An Au Pair lives with a host family for a certain time and takes care of tasks like childcare and easy household chores. He/She gives the kids a ride to school and social activities and prepares little snacks. He/She is a temporary "big brother/sister", gets a private room, a salary and attends a language course.

For both parties, it's an excellent way for a cultural exchange and the opportunity to explore something new. The Au Pair lives a different life and makes international friends from all around the world that are having the same experience. The family gets a new additional member.
