Being an EF au pair is a rewarding, wonderful and challenging experience. It gives you the chance to get to know new people, a new family, be fluent in a new language.... the list could go on forever. You will help an American family with their child care, as well as be an ambassador for your country.
Being an au pair is a unique experience, and you have to be a special person to be one. It is not for everyone. Child care is a very demanding job, and it is not easy to live in a different country for a whole year. However, if you can face these challenges, you can look forward to a wonderful and rewarding year. EF AuPair will be proud to have you on their program!
That EF Au Pair Handbook is designed to give you more information on being an au pair and also helps you prepare for your year abroad, so please read it thoroughly and completely. That EF Au Pair book will be very useful before and during your year in the United States, so be sure to bring it with you as you will want to refer to it often.
All the best of luck!
P.S. I''m going to USA as an au pair as well :)
