Au Pair in Spain & Perfect Your Spanish

Au Pair in Spain & Perfect Your Spanish

If you’ve studied any foreign language on a university level, you were probably encouraged by your language teacher to study abroad to perfect your skills. It’s no secret that there is a big difference between “living in a language” verses “studying” one in a classroom. If you are learning Spanish then there is nothing quite like a brief stay in Spain push your skills into the fluent category. 

Au Pairing is one of the best ways to do this. Here are 3 reasons why you should Au Pair in Spain to improve your language ability. 


1. It’s a Cost-Effective and Stress-Free Way to Live in Spain

When travelling you tend to spend quite a bit of money on your flight before even considering basic living costs such as food and accommodation. When au pairing your food and accommodation are provided by your host family and anything else should be covered by the weekly stipend of €60 to €80. So if you stay long enough, you can make back the cost of flights or even make a small profit. 


2. Free One-to-One Spanish Lessons

Typically, when Au Pairing you will be living with a Spanish family and will be required to work 30 to 35 hours a week. This will be with Spanish children giving you unlimited opportunities to practice your Spanish. It doesn’t get any better than that!

3. Immerse Yourself in the Language/Culture

Did you know that in Spain there is a saying mi media naranja which is used to describe a significant other; literally translated it means the other half of my orange? Did you know that Spain is also famous for its oranges?  Colloquialisms such as this are the fragments of language which make the biggest difference when relating to native speakers. It should come as no surprise that such phrases are easier learned by living in a language than studying one in a classroom.            

There are hundreds of studies that have been conducted on the symbiosis of language, and into it’s connection culture; enough for it to be a thought of as a universal truth that the two are inter-connected.
