Hoy queremos compartir en nuestro blog los comentarios de algun@s de nuestr@s au pairs in Spain. ¡Espero que sea motivador y os animéis a formar parte en nuestros programas en Galicia!

Katie

Katie compartió dos meses en A Coruña con una estupenda familia con tres niñas alegres y encantadoras.

Disfrutó de la experiencia au pair/ live-in English tutor en su totalidad: vivió con la familia en A Coruña y compartió vacaciones en familia en San Vicente del Mar, en la bellísima costa de Galicia, en las Rías Baixas.

I am leaving on Tuesday afternoon and yes I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone and that I am leaving so soon! 

I have loved my time here, I couldn’t have been placed with a better family and the feeling is most definitely mutual about enjoying their company! 

Everything for me has been great, the location of the family house, the fact I went on holiday with the family and all he places I’ve lived in/visited have been so beautiful and so fun!

You have been so helpful with everything as well and it’s great to have someone for support and guidance whilst au-pairing here

Genuinely, I am not really sure of any bad aspects that I can comment on. Thank you for everything!

I loved my time here and I’m really sad it is over, Galicia is so beautiful and I love the kids and friends I’ve met. Thanks for everything Carla, I will keep in touch about next year.

Joe

Joe vino a A Coruña como live-in English tutor. Vivió con una familia en el centro de la ciudad, cerca de las playas, disfrutando también de todas las ventajas que ofrece esta magnífica ciudad durante el verano (festivales en la playa, ferias, fiestas, conciertos y eventos variopintos). Joe asistió a clases de español y enseñó inglés a los miembros más jóvenes de la familia: una niña de 12 años y un adolescente de 16. También nos cuenta que disfrutó mucho de su estancia en Galicia y espera volver pronto…

Just a quick message to say I’m back in the UK safely, facing up to the realities of going back to uni! 

I really enjoyed my time in Galicia, thanks for all your help and support with everything, I will be getting the word out about what a great experience it is and encouraging my friends to get in touch! 

Hopefully I’ll be back myself at some point!

Jessica

Jess es asistente de conversación en Madrid, pero el pasado verano decidió que necesitaba un cambio y vino a Cambre, A Coruña, a pasar una temporada como au pair con una estupenda familia con tres niños encantadores. Inmediatamente se adaptó a la vida familiar  y fue acogida como una más de la familia. Disfrutó cada minuto de su experiencia au pair compartiendo vida de familia, salidas, fiestas y reuniones familiares. Podríamos decir que disfrutó de un auténtico intercambio lingüístico y cultural. Esperamos verla pronto por Galicia…

Today is my last day with Maria’s family and we are all fighting back tears, it’s going to be a tearful goodbye I’m afraid!

I want to say thank you for allowing me this opportunity, I couldn’t have imagined a better summer with as incredible a family! We will for sure be keeping in touch in the future

Maybe next summer I’ll return to Cambre we’ll see!

Carla

Carla vino a pasar una temporada como tutor de inglés en San Xenxo, Pontevedra, un destino muy popular en los meses de verano; conocido por su ambiente y magníficas playas. Si bien en un principio le resultó difícil conectar con los niños, no se rindió fácilmente. Finalmente se ganó la confianza y el cariño de los niños y todos disfrutaron del intercambio cultural. Y Carla ciertamente disfrutó de la comida casera preparada por su familia…

Firstly, I would like to say that my au pair experience has been an extremely positive one and made my summer of 15’.

The initial process of applying and getting in touch with the family was simple and well constructed and organised.

My au pair family was absolutely wonderful, especially Clara, the mother, who always made sure I felt comfortable, at ease and relaxed. I have to say that the rest of the members of their extended family were equally lovely, always ready to help.

I believe my task wasn’t an easy one though. As it is summer, children were always very active in their daily activities. As such, they were predominantly surrounded by family and friends who speak Spanish. As they are still very young, Clara and I decided not to establish any concrete activities or hours in which I would constructively teach them English. I do believe that, as you said in the early beginnings, establishing a timetable and some activities would have been easier in terms of my approach with them. Nevertheless, Clara did not wish to force them and we let it be a more relaxing approach. This was wonderful for the children as they weren’t overwhelmed with strict and structured activities.

In terms of the cultural experience, It was all and more than I hoped for. I was familiarised with much of the Spanish customs and traditions. In addition, the family always encouraged me and helped me visit other places and attend events in Galicia for which I was very grateful. And the food prepared by Clara and the rest of the family were extraordinarily good.

Chelsie

Chelsie viajó desde Canadá hasta Oleiros, A Coruña, para quedarse una temporada con otra estupenda familia. Cuidó y les enseñó inglés a tres niños muy cariñosos (¡y muy activos!). Pasaron mañanas y tardes haciendo deporte, inventando juegos y compitiendo en la wii… (para sorpresa de los niños, siempre ganaba Chelsie). Toda la familia se encariñó mucho con Chelsie y esperan volver a compartir juntos el próximo verano.

 I loved my time here and I’m really sad it is over, Galicia is so beautiful and I love the kids and friends I’ve met.

I hope to be able to come to A Coruna next summer; I miss it and the family so much!

Thanks for everything Carla, I will keep in touch about next year :)

Amy

Amy llegó a La Coruña a principios de mayo y se ha quedado enamorada de la ciudad y su gente. Aquí nos deja su comentario sobre sus experiencias como au pair  en Galicia para que inspire a nuestr@s futur@s au pairs…

I am great thanks, still in A Coruña so yes I am very much enjoying it!! I have extended my stay until I start a job in London in November… If I didn’t have this to go back to I might never leave haha!! I have loved my time with Betty and her family, the au pair experience has been really rewarding. I have found the Galician people to be very warm and the country is really beautiful… There is a lot to recommend!! I have only positive things to say Hope you are well and also thank you so much for matching me with Betty, I am so grateful!
