Letter to the family

My name is Eliza and I am a 19 year old from Buckinghamshire, England. I currently am living at home with my parents, younger brother Archie and dog Gretel and have a place to start at Newcastle University in October to study Spanish with international business. I attended Uppingham school as a boarding student where I studied Spanish, Biology and Geography at A level following completion of my GCSE's at Bedford Girls School obtaining all A's and A*'s. In my spare time I love to cook, travel as much as possible and stay active as well as spend time with friends and family. I have been lucky enough to combine these interests over the past year as a part of my gap year which I spent traveling in Europe, India, Nepal and Vietnam, volunteering at a school in Bihar and undertaking a ski season as a chalet host in the Three Valleys, in preparation for which I did an Orchards cookery course and have a level 2 award in food safety and hygiene.

Over the past few years I have gained experience in looking after children both at home and abroad, this includes nanny work for a local family with a young boy during the summer holidays where I would take him to activities, cook meals and entertain throughout the day and evening. Further to this at the end of last year I spent 2 and a half months in the Northern Indian state of Bihar volunteering at a school helping to improve the level of spoken English with children with ages ranging between 5 -18, this proved challenging at first as it was necessary for us to plan lessons and activities with a language barrier, however it was extremely beneficial to see the improvement made in language and the bond we were able to develop with the children through teaching them sports and games as well as grammar.

I would love to become an Au Pair as it allows me to continue to do many of the things I love most; travel and experience life in another country, spending time with children and developing my language skills. I have lots of relevant experience and am always looking to develop skills and experience with looking after children. I would love to undertake a job in Spain as I already have a good understanding of the language from completing an A level as well as having visited the country numerous times. However, I am always eager to learn new languages and so would be open to positions in countries such as France where I have spent time and have a basic level of French.
