Letter to the family

Hi!

My name is Holly - I'm a British law student living in London and would absolutely love to au pair in France this summer.

From this experience, I would love to learn more about the French culture and language. I have studied French at school but had to stop when moving to university and I have really missed speaking a foreign language. I am very ambitious and hard-working and would love to become fluent! Becoming more familiar with aspects of day-to-day life in France such as music or TV programmes and films is really important to me, but my priority would be to form close bonds and friendships for life with French people. I would be really interested and excited to become a part of the family and help out with things, as I am a very sociable person.

In terms of what a host family could expect from me, I am personally very open to taking on new tasks and I am willing to do whatever I can, taking the appropriate initiative to help out when I'm needed. I am comfortable with working with children and adults and doing tasks such as food shopping, cooking and cleaning. Additionally, I like to think that I am tolerant and welcoming with all people and do what I can to help others out when they need me.

Experience

Although I have never taken part in childcare professionally, I have a younger sibling who I have always helped with at home and I am comfortable babysitting him and his friends. During my education, I tutored younger children in French to help them with grammar and vocabulary and always enjoyed seeing them develop and building a positive relationship. I have also taken part in a Paired Reading scheme, during which I helped children who were not natively English to read better. I feel that having someone who cares to help with education can make it fun and accessible. In terms of younger children, a close friend of mine had a baby at 17 years old. I have taken care of her son and helped when she struggled with childcare.

Becoming an au pair abroad would give me the opportunity to meet new people and create lifelong bonds. I absolutely love children and can see all of us enjoying the experience to learn more about different cultures!
