Find an Au Pair that's Right for your Family
Find a French Speaking Au Pair With EurAupair
EurAupair began sponsoring au pairs for the United States from European countries more than 25 years ago. We have the legal designation from the U.S. Department of State and the experience to help you find the right au pair for your family. We place au pairs from five different continents now, but European au pairs remain at the heart of our program.
All of our au pairs we place in the U.S. speak English, but for many, it is not their native language. Immersion in an English-speaking culture improves their language skills, although EurAupair screens au pairs to be sure their level of English is appropriate and will allow them to be functional on their very first day in the U.S. Our objective evaluation of the au pair’s English is provided to you as part of their application package, and you get a chance to interview your au pair prior to placing with her in order to ensure her English level matches your expectations.
Language is just one area where EurAupair provides screening and support for au pairs and families. We understand the cultures our au pairs come from, and we work hard to bridge those gaps so everyone’s experience is a good one.
We tell families that hosting an au pair is like adding another person to their family. At EurAupair, we consider ourselves part of that family, as well. We are committed to enriching the au pair experience for everyone involved in any ways we can.
Benefits of a French-Speaking Au Pair
Language is one of the exciting parts of the cultural exchange between au pairs and their host families. While au pairs strive to improve their English, they share some of their native language with the families they live with. Hosting a French-speaking au pair, for example, can offer several benefits:
- If your children are studying French in school, an au pair who can rehearse their lessons with them can accelerate their fluency. Most school language programs incorporate some cultural learning, too. What better way to learn about French culture than living with an au pair from France?
- French cuisine is always popular in the U.S., especially in upscale restaurants. Many menus are written in French and can be difficult for a non-French speaker to decipher. The language skills you could pick up from a French-speaking au pair could even enhance your next trip to a popular French restaurant.
A French-speaking au pair for the United States in not an unusual request. Some families looking for a French-speaking, live-in nanny actually end up hosting an au pair instead. With the emphasis on cultural exchange in the au pair program, most families feel they get more out of this child care option.
