Why trust us with your Au Pair’s English learning?
Challenges and opportunities of au pair English learning
As an au pair host family, or an agent in London responsible for matching au pairs and families together, you want to know you’ve got it right. You want to be sure they can look after children well, that they can provide attention, learning opportunities and – above all – safety.
First and foremost, in order to give an excellent standard of care to children, an au pair needs to be conﬁdent and articulate in their use of English.
Usually, but not always, au pairs are young women who come to the UK for a period of time for work to absorb something of the British way of life. Very often their experience is a positive one. Yet even while working hard for your family, many au pairs can struggle to ﬁnd an English school that can oﬀer them personal support, convenience, ﬂexibility and aﬀordability that they need in order to rapidly improve their English skills. Not only do we oﬀer all of these, we also come with top reviews from our au pair students.
Does your au pair know – without hesitation – what to do in an emergency? Can they express that ﬂuently and assertively in English? Does their level of English enhance their children’s opportunities at the school gates and at home? An Au pair’s standard of English can help make the answer to all of the above an emphatic ‘yes’.
