Letter to the family

Originally translated from Français
Dear family
Hello, my name is Eva, I am 18 years old and I live in London. I am looking to be an au pair from September to December 2021 in a big city (I would love to live in Paris!). I love to learn languages: it's my passion. That’s why I would like to improve my French. In addition, having an immersive experience in a new city and being able to take care of the children are all opportunities that I would like to seize and which motivate me deeply. I have wanted to be an au pair for many years: I think it would be an unforgettable experience!

My personality
I believe that I am an independent person with a strong mind, I am quite outgoing and I am not upset about talking to new people or trying new things.
My family and friends
I live with my mom, dad, and two sisters, (and my cat and my dog ​​!!). I am the oldest of my two sisters who are 11 and 15 years old. I always have a lot of fun with my sisters and I am very close to them. I like spending time with my friends because I am very social.

My education
Right now I'm in my final months of school studying for my "three A Levels": French, Spanish and History. For me, languages ​​are powerful, essential: they allow us to connect with a culture, with a people, with a way of life. I have been practicing French and Spanish for 7 years. I hope that after my sabbatical year I will go to university to study modern languages ​​and linguistics.

My language skills
I have a good level of French, but I have the impression that the next step would now be immersion in a French-speaking city. I also think that having to speak French with the children would be very useful because often the latter do not hesitate to correct your mistakes! I can speak Spanish with a good level as well, and also as mentioned above I can speak Dutch and a little German and Japanese.

My motivation
What motivates me to become an au pair is actually the whole experience: improving my French and learning everything about a new culture, as well as being able to take care of the children and introduce them to my own culture.

My expectations
I hope I can look after the children, take them where they need to be and have fun with them. I know a lot of host families want their au pair to teach their children English and although I am happy to speak English occasionally with them it is really important for me to improve my French because it is is one of my main motivations to become an au pair. I'm only looking to be an au pair from September to December as I would like to be able to travel the rest of my gap year and attend some classes. I would be happy to clean up after dinner or after playing, but I would like my main role to be looking after the children, not cleaning. I can cook basic meals and I can reheat meals, but I want to tell you that I am not an extraordinary cook, I do not know how to cook anything difficult. I am also someone who appreciates her own space so if you are looking for an au pair to live in a maid's room or in a place separate from your own home it would be in my best interest (but not necessary! !). All in all, I am looking for a kind family to welcome me into their home to take care of their children. I would like to be clear about the expectations of my host family, so that I know everything I need to do and that there is no confusion. It is important for me that I know what my roles are, to be the perfect au pair for you and your life. I would like to have a relationship of trust and discussion with my family. This way I could make sure that I am able to explore the city and make friends while I am not working. If this sounds like you, send me a message! I would be very happy to receive a message from you :)

Experience

Originally translated from Français
I am the oldest of my two sisters, so I have a lot of experience in taking care of younger children. On top of that, I've been babysitting for families in my neighborhood since I was 13, and that's something I really enjoy. So, I am very used to working with children and I don't find it intimidating or scary: it comes naturally to me.
