Thanks to my host-family

I want to start off by saying that I was extremely lucky with my host-family. They have always been very welcoming and understanding, and fortunately we had very few misunderstandings. I have had a great 6 months in Shanghai, and I definitely recommend the city.

However, I want to adress a few things that isn't that great about this company. First of all, NEVER offer to pay for something and then let them pay you back. You will not get that same amount back. Secondly, be aware that the cultural programs are very rare and at odd times; I haven't even made it to one; so If you don't get along with those you come with, you may end up feeling very isolated and alone. Also, if your intention is to learn Chinese as a beginner, this is not the way, as the language courses are very rare and not that good. Last and most important: safety and communication. This didn't happen to me personally, but I heard of three girls visiting a different city, and ended up being drugged and robbed, without any possibility to return to their host-families. They reached out to the company for help, and their response was basically "This is your fault for going to a bar, and you are putting this whole company to shame". Their local coordinator had also since then, been ignoring them at all costs. I mean?
In general, they seem to just care about the satisfaction of the paying host-parents, not us.

Even though I'm not a huge fan of the company, I've had a good experience and I believe that you can too, just be very careful and ask the right questions, when it comes to picking a host-family.

Au pair Hangzhou

After 6 month of being an Aupair in China I can say that I enjoyed my time here I enjoyed exploring China and experiencing the Chinese culture.
My family was really nice and I‘ll miss this kids.
But still being an Aupair in China is different from other countries. What depends on your family but also on your mind setting and your durability.

Excellent experience

The experience has been awesome. My family and I really connected since the beginning. I'm going to miss them a lot when I go back to Spain because they are like my family now; they are my one and only Chinese family hahaha
My host family helped with everything as much as they can because sometimes it was really hard to lead with only Chinese the all day when I went outside of my house, but that made my Chinese improved a lot in these few months.

Great 6 month

I had a great time with my family. In these 6 mounth I was with my family, I expierienced a lot of nice and new things. At first I needed a bit time to adjust to the conditions but they helped me with everything they could.
The Mndarin classes were always fun and helped me a lot. Our teacher was pation with us and always tried to explain things so we could understand them.
I met a lot of new friends, with whom I will stay in contact even after we will leave China. We so much fun meeting up and they were always the first people I could speak with, when I had problems.

Great au pair company

LoPair is the best au pair company in Hangzhou from what I can tell. I've talked with many au pairs. LoPair is the most responsive to the needs of foreigners. Being an au pair in China is difficult, but LoPair will make it as easy as possible.
