Au Pair in Germany – If you think of going to Germany as an Au pair, to improve your language and discover the culture, the food, and the monuments of Deutschland. It’s a pretty good idea and bad at the same time, for the reason that Germany is an amazing land with loads of stuff to explore, but monthly pocket money of 260 euros, would make the mission hard but not impossible.
Starting from that, let’s talk about the advantages and disadvantages of choosing Germany as a host country.
Commencing with the goods, Germany is a touristic country. You will fall in love with the castles located in every German state.Much of these castles marked by their unique architectures have turned into museums and they are normally surrounded by elegant big parks.
The heart of Europe identified by its diverse natural and cultural landscape. Parks, gardens and green spaces are huge and the Rivers are almost in every city.
Germany is also one of the favorite countries for international students because of the study’s quality and fees which is 0. Don’t hesitate to make friends from all around the world!
In Germany, you are able to eat Italian, Turki, German, and much more. If you are a food lover like me, Germany will be the right destination for you to try food from all over the world, without talking about the variety of German bread. In comparison with other europian countries, Germany is a safe place. So you can stay out late even in the smallest city, you will be ok.
One of the benefits of being an au pair in Germany is the public holidays must be a holiday for you.
When you finish your au pair stay, or you want to leave the family, you have the possibility to find a voluntary year and stay in Germany an extra year, which helps you to improve the language and earn more experience.
On the other side, there are things that may not please you in Germany.
The language courses are pretty expensive in Germany, the family should help you with 50euros a month and it still not sufficient. it depends on which level you need to join, but not less than 250 euros a level.
Bad news! You may hate Sunday in Germany. An au pair in this country should have at least 2 Sundays off in the month but actually, you wouldn’t like Sunday too much. Like a relaxing day, on Sunday you will rarely find something open. Supermarkets, Malls, and others are closed on Sunday, so you will have just a few choices left to enjoy your day off.
The transportation could be not cheap in a few cities, which makes it hard for you to move freely if the family needs you to use the bus for the reason to pick the kids up or shopping, they need to pay it for you.
Each Country has bad and good sides, and what can be bad for you it’s good in the other’s eyes. Take it as an adventure and don’t hesitate to try any new thing you can.
