“I took two Spanish classes at my nearby college because I have a lot of Hispanic friends. I also took several museum classes in Washington, D.C. because they are convenient, cheap and I can spend the rest of the day in D.C.” - Merle K.
“I chose an au pair cooking class in Bethesda, Maryland. It took me 6 weeks and I got 3 credits. I chose it because it gave me a great opportunity to meet other au pairs and to improve my cooking skills since I cook for my hot kids a lot. Also, I learned how to use cups, ounces and so on, since we measure differently in Germany. My other class was a Washington, D.C. History class where we explored DC and all the monuments. It was a good way to learn more about the city where you live!” – Lisa L.
“I am going to go to an au pair weekend in Tampa or San Diego, but I haven’t decided yet. I’ve chosen these because you get all the credits, get to see another city, and get to know other au pairs!” – Lucia-Maria C.
“I took the Alliant classes in San Diego. You learn a lot about the U.S. and things that are important like communication. You also get to do sightseeing.” – Sarah R.
“I took a class to learn Sign Language. It’s really interesting and will be helpful in the future since I will most likely need it as an Occupational Therapist in Germany. Besides that, it really fascinated me and is something that I can put to good use!” – Bianca F.
“I’ve taken two classes already. First, I was in a drawing class that was really a lot of fun. The second class was “basics of writing a novel.” It was so great to learn more about stuff I love to do in my free time! One class is left and I’ll see what I’ll choose in January.” – Loreen F.
“In my first year I did a class in American language and government, because my host dad works in politics and I wanted to know more about it! I also took a special needs care taking class which will help mea lot in my future Physical Therapy career! In my second year I did an ASL class, as I love this language and my host kid doesn’t talk. Also I took the Nashville Travel class with BMCC. It was great to combine learning about the history of Nashville and actually going there!” – Bettina V.
