Au pair in Germany. What does it involve?

Holidays already knocking on the door. Students can not wait to throw a briefcase into a corner and textbooks, but many pupils also solves the problem. How best to deal with two months of rest? A similar dilemma last year, plagued Paul Mrkvičková, twenty-year student at Masaryk University in Brno. She decided to work in the summer. „Attracted me the opportunity to earn money to go abroad. The Internet offered an au pair in Germany, so I said, it's not a bad idea. “

A similar dilemma last year, plagued Paul Mrkvičková, twenty-year student at Masaryk University in Brno. She decided to work in the summer. „Attracted me the opportunity to earn money to go abroad.

** Paul, to get jobs abroad is certainly not easy. What you have to meet the requirements that you may worry about the German kid? **

Agency, which mediated occupations, I had to send a CV and an entry fee. There must, of course, at least the basic knowledge and some experience in childcare. Later I received a call from a German family to get me tested. Instead I had to wait a long time, but I finally accepted as a replacement au pair. It usually turns to year-round part-time governess, who wants to take on summer vacation.

** Where and what kind of family did you get? **

I lived in a small town near Brielle Manheimu. The family received me very well, although we Valerie, mother of three Sarah, just getting into the eye. Šišlavou spoke a German, which I initially did little problems. When I asked her to speak more slowly, with very friendly cringed. Conversely father Branko, Yugoslavian origin, behaved nicely. And my daughter was a sweetheart.

** What was your typical day? **

This morning I got up early, I had to wash and dress little girl and then her until six in the evening to pay. I also cook, even though I soon discovered, and found that I'm not so much (laughs). Fortunately, most bought preparations with which was no problem. Goal I ironed shirts sewn from a very nežehlitelného material and once when I was doing accidentally fired a huge stain on Valeria's pants. Maybe because too fond of me (laughs). In the evening I had a day off. Before my eyes adjusted a bit, I stayed in an apartment assigned to me. But later I was bored so I started going on tours. I met Mrs. sixty. It was a noble dámička hat and a thick layer of makeup, but despite the age difference, we understand perfectly.

** What makes you most angry in Germany? **

Education of children. Because there is basically none. A child can do whatever he wants, and parents are not in any way be used to rebuke him.

** You must be over two months has seen a lot of hot moments. What was the hardest for you? **

Get the child's trust. The previous governess, the mob threw for her friend, the girl is told that it would not be at all happy, and I mean it. But the hardest part for me was goodbye. Sarah was crying and I reached out maybe even more.

** How can this work help in the next life and what would you advise the girls that reflect a similar brigades? **

It was a baptism of fire. By that, I had my apartment, I was very independent. I also know that it is not easy to take care of the household. And I learned perfect German, which helped me find a job in the Czech Republic. I work as a lecturer in a German company. Girls wishing to work abroad as a governess, I'd recommend that you try out in advance what it takes to care for family members. And most importantly – not to worry. It's a great experience in life.
