Becoming an au pair is an exciting and enriching move for many young people, allowing overseas visitors to work in a new country and gain genuine local experiences. In between bonding with their host family and becoming a 'big sibling' to their children, au pairs can practice their second language, learn to drive on the other side of the road, enjoy the au pairing community, and live in places they may never have experienced otherwise.
