Multilingual kids with the Au Pair help.

 

Many parents  would like to teach their children extra skills or a language to prepare them better for their professional life. People who fluently speak more than one language are more likely to be considered for a job and more likely to earn a higher wage than monolingual speakers. Kids who speak two languages also develop the ability to multitask. Having your child learn a second language gives a child a distinct educational advantage that will last a lifetimemost-popular-languge

What languages are other people trying to learn? There are a lot of languages and cultures to choose- a bilingual family member, friend, neighbor, or caretaker who can spend time with your child  and speak to your child in the target language. Go Au Pair hires Au Pairs from 60 countries -Au Pairs from Australia, Mexico, South Africa, Brazil, Ecuador, China, Colombia, Ukraine, S. Korea, France, Russia, El Salvador, Spain, Germany, Romania, Hungary and many more

Hiring an Au Pair who speaks the language of the family’s choice is an excellent option. Host families choose an Au Pair from a specific country because they are able to teach the language naturally through study and play. Speaking another language or two will open many doors for children.

There’s no better way to celebrate the power of volunteering than to volunteer! Two weeks ago a group of the Au Pairs from Go Au Pair volunteered at the Philadelphia Marathon and helped raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
