Would you like to live in the north of Spain with a local family? Be an au pair!
You will get free accommodation in a single room inside the house of the familiy, food and a weekly wage of 60-100 € in exchange for doing babysitting and some simple housework.
The workday is only about five hours, usually in the evening, when children don’t have to go to school. You also will have free two days per week. Babies are at least 2 years old and families are carefully selected.
Often Spanish families required the au pair to give some English language assistance to their children. This means to speak some hours in English with them or to help them doing their English school homework. For that kind of responsability, it’s not compulsory to be an English mother tongue, but you need to have a high level of knowkedge of English language.
In some cases, the Spanish host family also covers the cost of a Spanish language course at our school, the travel from your country or the medical insurance.
Stays are at least for three months in summer, but the most required duration is for the nine months of the whole academic year.
