We are the Chen family, my name is Chen Yan and I am the host mother. I have three children in my family, the oldest one named Zhao Zilong who studies at junior school, would only come back home at summer or winter vacation which means you would not get touch with him frequently, the youngest one named Mo Qizheng is only 9 month year old, and my only daughter Mo Yufan is 4 years old, she now studies at kindergarten. Both of Qizheng and Yufan would have early-educational class, those classes were quite amazing such as Chinese calligraphy and we do hope you can join these interesting class with my children and in this way, you could have some extraordinary experience about Chinese culture. Not only having classes, during the learning period, we also hope you could have more communications with my children, both of them are all outgoing and kindhearted and we are pretty sure you could become good partners.
Beijing is a really amazing city, combining time-horned Chinese culture and modern elements together. If you have a close-up view of it i promise you would love it. As the capital of China, you could see scenic spots and historic sties which have a long history with your own eyes like the great wall, besides, you could also see some advanced building like the water cube which was regarded as a sign of modern China. So I hope you could go out with us at weekends to expand your horizon. Apart from this, I also want you could join our ordinary Chinese life, living in one place and leading local life is totally different from traveling. In this way, you could have chances to enjoy the most authentic Chinese food, experience real Chinese life and gain another wonderful experience.
After this, we could have more conversations about the culture differences or something you are interested in , you could talk your own culture to my children, to my husband and to me, we are all glad to chat with you.But if you have some troubles, please do not hesitated to talk to us, I and my husband are all glad to help. While here’s on thing you need to avoid, telling a lie is not permitted, particularly in front of children.
The things i mentioned before are all about my family, now let’s talk about you. In my opinion, you should be optimistic, easygoing, love children and good at communication. During your Au Pair period, we hope you could spend a bit more time with my children, be a good example for them and give some nice guides to my children. After this, I am glad to see my children to be more gentleman or more lady under your help.
One more thing may excited you is that we are going to sanya during our vacation, it is another beautiful city which located at southernmost in china. You would see different Chinese seascape there have another memorable experience.
If you feel like our family and you can meet my requirement, you are welcomed.
