"Au pair" means "on par" or equal. Au pairs become an “on par” member of a French family, sharing a cultural exchange experience. Being an au pair means that in exchange for board, lodging and pocket money you help the family by taking care of the family’s child/ren and by helping out with light household chores. To be an au pair is a way to discover a new culture and improve your language skills without having to spend a lot of money. In fact you will actually be earning some money at the same time! Being a part of a French family will also give you a deeper view of the everyday French life.
