The au-pair program is
for young people between 17-30, but the age limits varies between countries.
Traditionally only females participate in this program, but there are also host
families willing to receive male au-pairs.
The au-pair program
is an excellent option for young people who wish to improve their foreign
language skills with the security of living in a family environment. This
option also gives the opportunity to stay in a foreign country cheaply. You
will have time off to be able to attend classes, make new friends and visit new
places in your days off.
