As an au pair at Au Pair Program, you are going to attend 40 Mandarin lessons at the local university or language school for 3 months’ placement, or 80 Mandarin lessons for 6 months’ placement (45mins/lesson). And these are Free for you!
Our host families provide you with your own room in their lovely house along with all your meals. In exchange, you tutor English to the children, improve their knowledge of the world and share your home culture. Click here to read more information about how the program works.
