One of the things that my host sister and I really enjoy doing together is cooking!
Last night, we decided to cook a "french dinner ». We made two quiches, one mushroom quiche and one salmon quiche.
It´s really hard to put my impressions of such a long time in a few words, but following the most important things for me. I hold that being a part of a foreign family is a great chance to not just improve one´s language skills and experience the culture but as well it makes you learning more soft skills, which might be a big advantage for you future life. As you have to adapt a completely different way of life from one to the next day, it makes you widen your horizon drastically.
Have you ever wanted to travel abroad and find out what it is like to be a part of the local culture? As an Au Pair or Demi Pair, you can do just that!
Both Au Pairs and Demi Pairs live with a Canadian family and take part in the ultimate cultural exchange. As an Au Pair or Demi Pair, you and your host family are both ambassadors of your countries. Your Canadian “family” will introduce you to Canadian culture and treat you like a member of the family.At the same time, your “family” will enjoy learning all about you and your culture.
Hello, I am Irene, from Madrid, Spain. I really recommend this program, you not only learn the English in the school, also in your house, with the host family. They are very nice an friendly people.
I remember my first day, they gave a lot of confidence and they tried to relax me. And also I have lucky, because my host father work in something that it is similar for my likes, and we speak a lot.
I'm having a great time being a Demi pair in Canada. I really feel like I'm part of the family. They always include me in their activities and I enjoy spending time with them. I am learning a lot, improving my English but also opening my mind to another culture and way of life. I think that being an au pair is the best way to improve your English and experience Canadian lifestyle living with a nice family ! :)
