Our Au Pairs Say

I had a very interesting time working as an au pair. The Mandarin classes are a definite highlight of the program, as I have felt my skills improve greatly since first arriving here. Very good program for someone looking for something to do in their gap year. The cultural activities were very enjoyable and I learned a lot about people from other cultures. You have a lot of free time during the day to explore Beijing and some time to do traveling outside the city as well. In my time here, I visited Shanghai, Dalian, and even had a quick jaunt over to Seoul, which I never would have been able to afford without the help of this program.

I spent 3 months in Beijing living with 2 different host families as an Au pair with Auparia. Overall it was a very positive experience, both my host families were very welcoming and the living conditions were very good. The host kids were nice and it was enjoyable to work with them. I had a lot of free time to explore Beijing which made my experience even better as it is a really interesting city to explore.                                         Sam, UK,participated in 2018

I got to visit many different places in and around Beijing(where I was placed), I met many different people from all over the world and have made some friemds for life. I got to see and experience a completely different culture to what I was used to. I lived with a chinese family and also got to learn the language while I was here by attending the madarin and culture classes that are provided by the company. Finally I got to grow as a person, this helped me become more confident both in myself and socially and it helped me become more independant.                                                                          Daniel, UK, participated in 2018

Aupairia is a great company and their program is very affortable. Living with a Chinese family makes you feel like a local and you have many chances to travel around. I became very close with my host family and now have a little sister! Adapting to a new culture can be hard but you will grow so much. I love Aupairia!                                         Michelle, USA, participated in 2018

It was an amazing cultural experience not only because of the mandarin courses and instant cultural inclusion with a host family, but also because of the other aupairs form all over the world that you will meet. I didn’t think that I would be practicing my Spanish with au pairs from Mexico or learning about Macau from the Portuguese aupairs, but i did and it was an experience that I wont ever forget.                                        Andrew, USA, participated in 2018

My time spent tutoring is incredibly reasonable, and it allows for me to spend a good portion of time exploring Beijing. Beyond this, I had the opportunity to visit many other Chinese cities during my time which further enriched my visit. I also had the chance to learn Mandarin at a local university, which, very immediately enabled me to unlock a lot more doors in a country where English is still not widely spoken.                         Zohaib, Australia, participated in 2018

If your looking for something to do between high school and university, AuPair in China is one of the best options because is free, you have the oportunity to meet a new culture and people from all over the world, Aupairia pay for your flights, food and accomodation and you just have to teach English and your culture for your family, you also take chinese lessons twice a week in one of the best universities in Beijing, so don’t doubt more and come here!                                                                                                                                  Alejandra,Mexico, participated in 2018

The Great Wall of China was just as amazing as the pictures ,the food was delicious and the culture activities were educational. But this trip is so much more than what was advertised,I got to travel with the host family to museums, local art galleries and spent a magical christmas at Shanghai DisneyLand。I highly recommend this program to all!                                                                                                                                           Ryan, New Zealand, participated in 2018

Making dumplings together

We did activities together, we went to University to learn Mandarin, we visit temples, we went out, we  became friends. Our mandarin teacher was always super helpful and we leaned a lot with each other. Every time I had a problem or needed help, Aupairia was there to help! I learnt so much about China and Chinese people, Language, other countries and also about be. It was such a great experience.                                                       Ana, Portugal, participated in 2018

In the beginning I was surprised by their quick response and willingness to help in any case needed. This did not end once I arrived in China. After picking me up at the airport I was welcomed into the group of aupairs , we became a such a close family here that by the time everyone started going home and the new aupairs started coming in it was hard to say goodbye.                                                                  JacquesSouth Africa, participated in 2017

Definitely one of the best experiences of my life so far. I have enjoyed every minute of my stay here in China, with the other aupairs, with my family and with the amazing aupairia staff. Had so much fun during Chinese classes and cultural activities, discovering new things about Chinese life style and culture. I’m so glad this experience has given me the opportunity to meet new people that i can now call my friends!                       Agnese, Italy, participated in 2017
