Beaucoup de filles sont actuellement dans un processus d’interview avec différentes familles pour un départ cet été. Voici donc pour vous un concentré d’idées de questions que vous pouvez poser. Certaines questions ont leur réelle importance, d’autre permettent juste de mieux découvrir leur personnalité. A priori certaines questions ont déjà leur réponse dans la lettre des parents mais comme c’est différent pour chacun j’ai mis un maximum de questions =)
Certaines questions sont plus simples à poser à l’au pair, d’autres à la famille, voici quelques idées =)
(Désolée pour la mise en page un peu hectique, wordpress fait des siennes)
