Where to find a suitable language course
We highly recommend to ask your host family about language schools in their surroundings. If they do not know either, you can always look in google maps their address and then look for language schools nearby.
In general, there are public institutions such as the Volkshochschule in Germany, the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas in Spain or the Università Popolari and Centri Territoriali Permanenti (CTP) in Italy, which offer courses on an economical basis. Alternatively, universities are also a good place to look for an available course.
Finally, there are plenty of private language centres where au pairs can find a suitable course. AuPairWorld has partnered with LanguageCourse.net to help search for private language schools all over the world.
Upon completion of their language course, au pairs may take an exam and receive a certificate to document their successful completion of the course.
After finding a language course, talk to your host family about your future schedule and how it matches the language course times. We recommend you to have flexible languages classes as far as possible. Agree as well with your host family what's the plan in case one of the children is ill and who has to stay home.
