AU-PAIR очень популярная международная культурно- языковая программа молодежного обмена. В ней участвует много стран. Есть международная ассоциация, которая каждый год выбирает лучшую семью в номинации: the Host Family in Excellence Award. В этом году принимающая семья нашей AU-PAIR номинирована на это высокое звание. Мы очень рады этому, но самое главное рады тому, что семья так много дает своей AU-PAIR. Ниже рассказ Тани о своей семье. Думаю, что из этого рассказа понятно, почему именно эта семья претендует на высокое звание the Host Family in Excellence Award.
10 reasons why my host family is the best in the world!
Last year in the end of November a 22 year-old Ukrainian girl was getting on the plane, full of dreams and expectations for first full year in the USA as an au-pair in a family.

I have improved with her support so much! Now I enjoy driving and I'm very confident and safe! Great job, my host mom!
I am a vegetarian and never kept it a secret, so my host family knew I might need some special attention in this issue. But I never expected my host mom to care about my health so much.
