Letter to the family

My name is Chadia. I am a 23 year-old (female) French student. I study Chinese language, history and literature in France, Lille which is located in the North. I have been in China several times to different cities . I have been studying Chinese for six months in Dalian University of Foreign languages. I love this country, for it’s history culture, and food of course. I know a lot about Chinese culture but I am sure that you can help to know more about it.
Update: I have been an Aupair in 2019-2020 in Beijing, in a family of two adorables kids. I have good memories and experience in this family.

I come from a family of 6: My parents, and I have 2 sisters and one brother.

In about a year or two I plan to pursue a masters degree, but I am yet to make up my mind concerning my future area of specialization. So, at the moment, I would like to take some time out of academics to have a different life experience, and to have time to calmly reflect on my future academic/professional orientation. To this end, I think spending a year abroad would be particularly interesting.

My first language is, of course, French, and I am also fluent in English. I started learning English in primary school, I have in addition been taking courses taught in English at university.
I speak an intermediate level of Spanish and Arabic and have some basics in Chinese.
I am nevertheless aware that learning a language within a classroom context is by itself, incomplete. So, in order to really be at ease in Chinese, I feel that a cultural immersion would do me a lot of good. Through my language teachers, (most of whom are Chinese) I have learnt a lot about China, and life in China. Hence my desire to have second experience in à Chinese family life. For this reason, I would very much like to find a nice family to live with and work for in China.

When it comes to child care experience, I have looked after children in both formal and informal contexts. Among others, I provided after-school tuition to children aged between 5 to 10 years. I also organized for them and took part in recreational indoor and outdoor activities: we sang, danced, played games, role played, drew, painted, and narrated stories. We also visited the public library, the local animal park, went out on picnics and a camping trip.

I have helped my sister look after my nephews since birth. Although my looking after them is now restricted to my university vacations, as a teenager, I was nevertheless much more involved in caring for them on a daily basis. I can comfortably say that I sincerely enjoy spending time with children.

When it comes to leisure, I take pleasure in the simple things in life. I enjoy being outdoors, being with my friends, going for walks, visiting places I have not been to, and reading a good book.

As far as preferences are concerned, I am looking for a live-in arrangement with a host family, that would be happy to have me stay with and work for them. Lastly, although I am quite flexible, I would prefer to have working hours that would allow me to attend day time Chinese language classes.

I would be happy to have the opportunity to speak with you: to answer whatever questions you may have about me or my childcare experiences; to learn more about your family; your interests and to know more about what you expect from the au pair arrangement.

Thank you very much for your interest in my application!
I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours Sincerely,
Chadia
