Advantages of being an au pair in Germany

Being an au pair in Germany is different from any other experience that you will ever have. It combines your love for children with cultural exchange, traveling, learning and friendship. As an au pair you will enjoy a monthly stipend worth with accommodation (private room) and meals, and you get the opportunity to travel to Germany and the European Union and meet new friends from around the world. By learning a new language, you can improve your career prospects and enjoy the opportunity to study in Germany later.
Depending on how quickly you pick up the language a popular option is also to become an au pair in Austria after your year in Germany.
