Germany is located in the heart of Europe and has a great cultural reputation and economical potential. Germany is a beautiful country with nice landscapes and a lot of regional differences. You should use your leisure time to travel through your host country, discovering the different regions and the and interesting cities to visit, such as Munich, Düsseldorf, Stuttgart, Berlin, Dresden and many others. Prepare your stay in Germany upfront or you can also ask us for advice to not miss out typical German traditions and ceremonies. Use your leisure time to visit the country, learn about its culture and meet German people. This will help you to improve your language skills.
Working as an Au-Pair you will experience Germany in a very special way: You are not only visiting the country, but being part of a German family. You will be integrated in the family and will participate in their daily life. You will discover by yourself what preconceptions of the Germans proof to be right and which ones turn out to be wrong.
Any family participating in the Hallo AuPair Program will be open-minded and happy to learn something about your country of origin. Perhaps you can agree with them to cook something typical from your country to experience something new? Many host families do care a lot about a healthy life-style and will appreciate if you prepare vegetables and fruit for their children. If you are open- minded to experience a new country and willing to adapt to the host family´s daily life you will have a great Au-Pair experience that shapes your personal and professional future.
