The heroine of today’s interview with John was born in Ukraine, graduated from of Economics and Information Technology. As a student of the 5th year, went to Germany on the program Au-pair. GIC does not necessarily agree. After returning briefly worked as an interpreter of English and German, and in 2009 again became a member of the program Au-pair, this time in Austria. Ian now lives in the heart of Vienna and is a student at the University of Vienna, where she was studying for a degree ‘Intercultural communication / connection’. In addition to learning a lot of traveling and is a moderator of the branches ‘Youth Program’ on our forum suitcase. PARTICIPATION IN THE AU-PAIR: Germany or Austria? Ian, how did you decide move to live in Europe? There was no such desire. Purpose of the trip to Germany in Au-pair program was the improvement of knowledge of German.
After the incident with the expulsion from Poland came the fear that I will never again be able to visit Europe, to travel freely. Therefore, overcoming depression, I began to find ways to come back. In Austria, came only because relatively quickly found a foster family program Au-Pair. Here an important role luck played: I was given a visa despite the deportation of the European Union. Tell us in a few words about Au-Pair. Is it hard to become a member, and that this needs to be done? No, not difficult. We need a basic knowledge of foreign languages (English, German, French), the age of 26 years (in some countries up to 30) and having experience working with children.
