The term au pair is used to describe the exchange of students to overseas countries where they will enhance their knowledge of a foreign language, have a higher education and know closely another culture. Many Latin American young girls choose this option to develop in a country where they can afford their stay.
As has just been said, the main advantage of this kind of exchange is the cost of living: the host family must pay for expenses such as lodging and food in exchange for domestic chores. In this article you will know some Latin American au pair agencies.
This Peruvian agency offers cultural exchange for young Peruvian girls. AuPair International offers young girls exchange programs with families in developed countries like Germany, Holland, Austria and the United States.
The AuPair International program is aimed at young girls who want to improve their knowledge of a foreign language in a country where that language is spoken. Also, they will be able to take other courses and know other cultures. For more information, visit www.aupairinternationalperu.com.pe.
