Families that invite foreign au-pairs into their home are expected to treat them as they would the son or daughter of a family friend, and to provide them with accommodation, food, pocket money and an opportunity to improve their knowledge of the language of the country. It is an ideal way for au-pairs to learn the language and way of life but it is important for them to try to adapt to the families’ ways of life.
