France

The French culture is a mix between Northern and Southern Europe. A French au pair may be more punctual than a Spanish au pair for example, but will be more flexible on schedule than say a German au pair. Typically, French au pairs will be able to communicate any issues or concerns and will enjoy participating in the family life.

French couples have on average two children. While large families are less common than they use to, France still has one of the highest average number of children per family in Western Europe. French people have rather strong family values and will typically gather every evening as a family for dinner and meet for hours-long meals with near-by relatives on weekends and holidays. You can usually expect your French au pair to enjoy cooking and to participate in your family dinners and get-togethers.

French children will usually leave home at around 18 years old to pursue post-secondary studies in larger cities. They will get their own apartment and become independent at quite an early age.

French au pairs will usually have experience in doing private baby-sitting as well as being camp counselors. The French BAFA is a certificate for young adults (17+ years old) to become qualified camp counselors during holidays or during the summer. Some French high school students receive first aid instructions although it is not a mandatory part of their curriculum.

The French’s driver’s exam (written and practical) is very challenging. One can drive with a parent in the car from 16 years old but the driver’s license can only be obtained at 18 years old. Dozens of hours of actual driving experience is required to obtain a license. Public transportation is well developed in large cities but young adults outside of the main cities will most likely own a car and drive regularly. It is always recommended that you discuss your driving needs with your au pair.

French students are required to learn two foreign languages (starting in middle school) and English must be one of the two. The English curriculum in France will focus a lot on reading and writing so French student will usually be better in writing and reading than listening and speaking. It may be useful with your French au pair to write down any guidelines and schedule to make sure they are understood. Also, it is not uncommon for the French to think that their spoken English is way worse than what it actually is!
