English and Demi Pair in New Zealand 2023

The term "demi pair" is derived from the more common "au pair", which is French for "equal" or "mutual". It implies that giving and taking between you and your host family should be well-balanced. The other part of the term, demi, means half, indicating that you work less than an Au Pair would and are afforded more time to study. As a demi pair, you basically do the same things as an Au Pair: You live in a host family, you care for their children and do light household tasks, you bring the children to school or pick them up – and in your free time, you get to study English, go out with newfound friends or simply enjoy your host country.
