The Au Pair Mix – Some thoughts at half-time of my au pair stay

Hi guys,

I’ve been here in Dublin for three months now, half-time in my au pair stay. I’ve had good days and bad days, I’ve laughed and cried, travelled through the country and become part of a family. I’ve found new friends and missed my friends and family at home. But all in all, I’ve had (and am having) a great time and learning a lot as an au pair. Take a look at my new video with my latest thoughts about this au pairing life:

The real problems when you’re an au pair

It was a friendly and interesting and honest talk, so I thought I could share some of it in a post with you. Because we were talking about the real problems one has to deal with as an au pair. For example: Continue reading

The “orange” nightmare or how good is my English now?

Hi guys,

English is a great language and I think much easier than German. But not as easy as I thought. Sometimes it’s one simple word that I can’t say right. For example, the word “orange”. My host kids always correct me when I say it. It’s just a nightmare because I can’t even hear what I’m saying wrong. 😀 But apart from this, I really like improving my English here in Ireland. What’s the rest of the story? Take a look at my video, where I tell you more.

Talk to you soon!
