Comparisons are sometimes tricky. But still it often helps to know what other au pairs have done to reassure yourself that you are doing fine at the moment. With that in mind, we wanted to give you the chance to ask former au pairs about your biggest doubts!
Ellen, Rosina and Francesca have answered the 7 most important questions based on their earlier au pair experiences. Don't miss our YouTube playlist with all their videos to see the answers they give (in English, German and Italian)!
Francesca, an Italian au pair in Sweden
Francesca was an au pair in Sweden, where she found a lovely family that shared a common passion for gymnastics with her. Sweden is not a very well-known destination for au pairs, but Francesca focused on the families rather than the destination in making her selection. She actually recorded a video in Italian with her experience too. Curious to watch her answers to the 7 questions in English? Play the video!
