More and more Au Pairs choose China as their gap year destination because they are attracted by the rich culture and its fascinating landscapes that China offers. For the time-honored history of the country – compared to the rest of the world – it is influenced by many different cultures and still offers a great cultural variety.
Our host families mostly live in Shanghai, either in suburban areas or downtown. Many city-based Chinese families live in apartments and only have one child due to China’s former Single Child Policy- the Chinese government ended the Single Child Police in 2015. No matter where your host family lives, you can be sure that it’s a comfortable home where you will have your own room.
Living with a host family will give you an up-close experience of everyday life within an exceptional Chinese family while creating opportunities for you to teach people about your country and culture as well. Chinese children are very inquisitive, so you can be assured they will ask questions and be very eager to learn.
