Virtually all au pairs will want to attend English lessons. Two to three hours per week is acceptable in the current climate of cutbacks, although more is always welcome and if available should be facilitated.
These lessons can make all the difference during the settling-in period and if possible you might consider adjusting your start date where the au pair won't be able to attend lessons immediately.
Your nearest college of further education might be a good place to start your enquiries as to availability.
In our opinion, useful bus or train services need to run at least hourly during the week, with some evening and Sunday service, otherwise there's a significant risk of the au pair feeling isolated.
