Me gustaría conocer la experiencia de alguna Au Pair en China

Hola, me interesa ser Au pair en China, pero me genera un poco de temor sobretodo el idioma, ya que es totalmente nuevo y muy complicado, por esta razón me gustaría conocer la experiencia de alguien.

Gracias :)

Hi, I really want to be an Au Pair in China, but I am afraid of the language, because it is really new for me and I know that it is really hard to learn, for those reasons I really want to know someone experience.

Thank u

Hi dear Lizbet,

I am happy to see that more and more young people from abroad are interested in becoming an Au Pair in China! 

What I am about to say is from a perspective of an ex - Au Pair and not an agent I am today :)

Four years ago, I was scared the same, but I knew I had to do it. Once I signed the contract with the Host Family, there was no going back. Still, before I arrived I had couple of calls with them, to make sure we will get along and understand each other.

Also, as an Au Pair in China you are eligible to have Mandarin classes free of charge, at least twice per week at our Mandarin school. There is a possibility to study at the University if you are staying for a year as well!

I'm going to be honest with you - Mandarin is considered to be one of the most difficult languages. Still, that doesn't mean it's impossible to learn - you can practice in the subway, on the street talking to locals, or with your Host Family while not teaching English (or Spanish). Older generations don't really speak English, but younger ones are getting good at it, so I am sure you will have no problems when communicating with them. 

The only honest advice I can give you is to get rid of the fear - you've got nothing to lose, only to gain. Your coordinators will be there to help you with any translation you might need. Get out of your comfort zone and see for yourself :)

Best regards,

Jovana (APSH)
