Au pairs are generally aged between18 to 27 and their chief purpose for being in the country is to learn the language and assimilate the culture.
An au pair generally lives with you and treated as part of the family and are unlikely to be classed as a worker or an employee. Au pairs earn board and lodging and a small amount of money each week in return for informal childcare (Childcare that is largely unregistered by the state for quality control, child protection and/or taxation purposes: Family & Childcare Trust, Informal Childcare in the UK.) and light housework.
