Letter to the family

Dear family,
My name is Selina. I live in a small village near Kaiserslautern, Rhineland-Palatinate. I have an older brother, Marlo, who is 21 years old. Ever since we were little, we have had a good relationship and we spend a lot of time together. In my family there are several children with whom I spent a lot of time while growing up.
In my free time I like to go to the gym and play tennis. Besides, I spend a lot of time with my friends. Baking and cooking also give me a lot of pleasure.
In March 2021, I finish school. My studies will not begin until September 2021. For this reason and the resulting free time I decided to stay as an au pair.
I already have experience with childcare, which made the choice for an au pair very quickly. For the past four years, I have been caring for three American children in our neighborhood if my help is needed. Thus I gained experience of childcare at the age of 3-11 years. That is why I am also familiar with the English language, which has been taught in school for nine years. My internship in an American elementary school further strengthened my experiences with children. This also gave me the opportunity to expand my interaction with children. On top of that, I give math tutoring. I don’t have a problem helping the kids with their homework.
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter and I hope to hear from you soon.
Best regards
Selina

Experience

For the past four years, I have been caring for three American children (two boys and a girl) in our neighborhood, as long as my help is needed. We spend time together like this: jumping on the trampoline together, watching the kids in the pool, doing crafts with the girl, and doing homework. Often I put the children to bed and we read a bedtime story beforehand. Thus, I saw the children grow up and gained experience for childcare for ages 3-11. My internship in an American elementary school further strengthened my experience with children. This also gave me the opportunity to further develop my interaction with children. I was in a first class for two weeks. In part I was allowed to design the lessons myself. We spent the breaks together in the playground with games such as. B. catch or hide. There are also younger children in my family that I have babysat.
The contact with children gives me great pleasure. I would also like to use my free time to get to know a new culture and improve my language skills. The best way to get to know the culture of a country is to stay with a local family. I therefore find the overall package of an au pair very appealing. I also find the aspect of living abroad for a longer period of time interesting, as it gives me the opportunity to get to know myself better and grow beyond myself. I find being an au pair a unique experience: meeting new people, looking after children for a longer period of time and taking responsibility. These are qualities that make an adventure like this unforgettable and the reason why I want to experience this adventure myself. In addition, I can offer others the opportunity to get to know German culture. These mentioned reasons move me for an au-pair stay.
