When you live in the country of the language you want to learn, without realizing it, you are acquiring not only the living language spoken also the culture of the country that will help you to embrace the language and the “way of think” of it.
Travelling with the au pair program and live with a host family in a country is one of the cheapest and most effective ways to achieve your goal: to improve the language and speak it fluently.
With the au pair program you live with a Spanish host family so room and board expenses are covered.
The host family pays you weekly money, the “pocket money”, enough to pay your expenses and even to pay the Spanish school.
Spanish host families often have domestic staff hired so your contribution will be exclusively in the care of children.
You will be treated like a member of the family, as the older sister of the children, will have the opportunity to travel with family during holidays and during the weekend, if you want, you can join them on trips they organized during the weekend.

You are assured daily leisure time for you. Children in Spain have long school days; many of them attend classes from 9 to 17.00. During this time you can go to Spanish classes, go to the gym or meet other au pairs.
During the summer, 20th June to mid-September.
