(19 August 2013) A writer and reporter team from myself.de travelled to Erlangen, Germany, where the Jantsch family lives. In the interview, Mrs Jantsch explains how having an au pair is the best childcare solution for her and her husband.
With a demanding job as a physician, Mrs. Jantsch values the flexibility and engaged support her au pair Yu-Lim provides. And the cultural exchange for the children and the family as a whole that comes with having a temporary family member from South Korea is an added plus.
Mrs. Jantsch and Yu-Lim found each other using AuPairWorld. By spending plenty of time with each other Skyping and emailing before the au pair placement began,Yu-Lim already felt close with the family before arriving in Germany. A satisfied user of the website, Mrs. Jantsch looks forward to continuing to make use of the AuPairWorld website in the future to find au pairs for her family.
We at AuPairWorld are happy and pleased to have been able to help the Jantsch family and Yu-Lim come together in a mutually beneficial way. And it's certainly exciting to be able to read all about it in myself.de. Take a look for yourself on the pages of myself.de! And if your German still needs a little work, we have an English translation of the interview available!
(And if you also might be interested in sharing your au pair experiences with the media, we'd be pleased to hear from you. Major media outlets are often interested in reporting on real-life au pairing.)
