In my opinion being an Aupair gives you a lot for your life. First of all you learn to live somewhere else where no one knows you. For me that was a very big step and I was worried I would be homesick. But I didn’t become homesick at all. Of course I do miss my family in Germany but because I’m in England there is only one hour of time shift and that makes it so easy to stay in contact with them. The experience of living in another family, like a real family member, is only given to you when you are an Aupair. It is so interesting how other people are living and how similar and also how different many things are. Of course to improve your English is always useful and often necessary for your future and to live with English speaking people is definitely the best way to do that. Spending time with children gives you very much. They think about things you probably would never think about and have such creative ideas and show you all their feelings. England was the best option for me to go for an Aupair, because it is in Europe so not very far away from Germany and I wanted to improve my English. I think that’s why England is a very popular place to go and we should try everything to keep that programme. I am taking a lot out of that stay here as an Aupair. Rainbow Aupairs made it possible to find that amazing family for me and I always felt in good hands.

I’m so happy I did Aupairing here in England and thankful for Rainbow Aupairs for their support. I definitely would recommend everyone to be an Aupair, because it gives you much more than just improving your language skills. I have a second home in London now and know I can always come back here. And what could be better than having a second family in a different country?

We are so very proud of @philined_1 who gallantly stayed to help her host fam during the pandemic to assist with their twin girls and her account of why the #Aupair programmes UK 🇬🇧 should remain.
