témoignage d’une famille française en stage de langue dans l’ouest irlandais

Bonjour,
Nous voila de retour de notre périple en Irlande!
Tout s’est merveilleusement bien passé : les enfants ont pu tirer profit au maximum de leur cours d’anglais; le B&B conseillé par votre organisme était absolument super à tous points de vue; tout était parfaitement organisé (navette de l’école en face du B&B, cours…) et pour ne rien gacher, le Kerry est un endroit magnifique.
Bref, je tenais à vous dire que nous sommes ravis et que je ne manquerai pas de vanter les avantages de cette formule!
Bonne fin de journée,
Sophie L and family

Charlotte H and her family live in Wimbledon, the home of English tennis!   Charlotte works in a hospital as a consultant paediatrician and her husband works in management.  They are a British family, Anglican.  They live in a house with a garden where they have two rabbits.  Their sons will be 14 and 16 in the summer.  The older boy goes to and from school on his own so the job for the au pair is to take and collect the younger boy to school on foot.  Cooking a simple meal  for the boys after school, helping to keep the home clean and tidy, doing the children’s laundry, hoovering.   Generally 25 hours a week plus 2 evenings’ babysitting and the pocket-money is £70 a week plus £10 a week for travelling expenses in London.  Family interests are: tennis [naturally!], music, singing, trips into Central London, cycling and cooking.    They need an Au Pair to arrive in late-August/beginning of September and to  stay until the end of July 2012.

 

Susan L is a single parent living in North London [Southgate].  She has two sons age 10 and 9 and a cat.  Susan works full time as a new business director.   It is a regular 25 hours a week plus some babysitting [not a lot],  very light domestic jobs because a woman goes in to do the heavy cleaning every week.   They live in a house with a garden.  Pocket-money £70 a week plus free weekend travel in London.   Weekends free.    They would love to host an au pair who enjoys cooking.   To start at the beginning of September and to stay until the end of July 2013.

 

Simon W and Lizzie T live in a large house with a garden in Muswell Hill, a nice part of North London.  They are an English family, practising no religion.  Their children are Sam 15, Georgina 14 and Anna 12.  They have a rabbit and a hamster J    They employ a woman who does regular cleaning so there is not much housework, just generally to help to keep the home clean and tidy and to perhaps do some light shopping and unpack the food deliveries.    The main job for the au pair is to organise the children’s lives and cook them an evening meal  because both parents work full time.  Simon is in corporate finance and Lizzie is an employment lawyer.   25 hours a week plus 1 or 2 evenings’ “babysitting” and the pocket-money is £85 a week.  She will have her own bathroom.

To start in late-August/beginning of September and to stay until the end of July 2013.

 

Hilary M and Eamonn R live in a large house in Barnet, N. London with their two children Caelan [a boy] age 9 and Siofra [a girl] age nearly 8.  These are Irish names because Hilary and Eamonn came to London from Ireland many years ago.  Hilary works as a medical doctor and Eamonn is a journalist.   They both work full-time.   They are a Catholic family.   They have no pets.  Their au pair is responsible for getting the children ready for school in the morning and taking them to school.  Then to collect them and care for them after school until a parent returns home.   They also need help to keep the home clean and tidy [a woman goes regularly to the house to do the heavy cleaning].   They pay £80 a week plus travel expenses [in London] and a mobile phone.

témoignage d’une de nos familles d’accueil

Hi Sandrine,

 

I hope that you are keeping well.

 

I have had such a lovely report from the family about Rachel that I want to share it with you.   I have cut and pasted it below…..

 

“Hi Maggie,
Thank you for your message. I wanted to wait until I had a moment to respond in full.

 

Rachel is absolutely amazing and we feel so blessed that you found her for us!!! She has become a real part of our family. You were right when you said that age does not have a lot to do with maturity. Rachel is such a mature 18 year old that I often forget how young she is.

 

Rachel is such a lovely girl with a sunny and upbeat disposition. She is a joy to have around. From the moment she arrived she has been enthusiastic about being here, learning English, making friends, discovering London. She shares that enthusiasm with the kids and when she has the opportunity, she takes them to museums or exciting places. She takes my youngest to the swimming pool — all her own idea.

 

The children have grown very attached. We are all dreading the end of her stay. She is incredibly warm and loving toward the children in a very natural way. She helps my eldest with piano (she is accomplished herself) and is very able to jump in with homework help or coming up with crafts for them to do. She is extremely helpful around the house, always asking what she can do to help.

 

I believe we have found a very good balance of living together and yet maintaining some privacy and independence. In any case, when Rachel is around we never mind because she is so lovely. She partakes in some family meals with us (we usually only have one in the week anyway — on Friday night) but seems content to eat on her own in the week. Weekends she is always out and about but we manage to stay connected and have good chats about her plans.

 

She did find a Chinese class at Morley college but dropped after about a month as the teacher sounded disappointing. She said she was happy to find the book that went with the course and now she practises on her own.

 

Rachel is a very special girl and we feel so lucky to have this year to get to know her. I feel so lucky to have her support with the kids, especially as they adore her and I trust her. It will be a sad day when she leaves but I hope she takes away from this experience lots of good memories and an excellent command of English (which I help her with whenever possible).

 

Thanks, Maggie. All the best,

Ellen
