minutes.

Jane: Hi! I find your profile quite interesting. Why are you interested in working as an
au pair?

You: Hello Jane


Nice to meet you! Because I would like to improve my level of English. I also find the experience of
living in another country interesting. I think that working as an aupair is an easy and safe way to
have work and accommodation insured.

Jane: Oh, I see! Have you had a look at our profile as a host family? Would you like to
work for us?

You: yes, I would, because I have been talking to a friend who was working with you and my friend
told me that you are a very good person

Jane: I can only offer you a salary of £70 per week, but you won’t have food expenses.
How do you feel about it?
You: I would love to earn 20 pounds more per week, because the standard price of living in this city
is very expensive, but for my first job it's fine.
PART 4
You are a member of the ‘PERFECT AU PAIR’ service. On your last visit to their website
you saw a private message from a host family.

Dear au pair,

I am sorry to inform you that we won’t be able to keep your £70/week salary due to
recent financial problems. For this reason we have found ourselves forced to reduce
it a 10%.
We feel so sorry about it and will appreciate your comprehension.

Kind regards,
Jane

feelings about the message you received and suggest possible alternatives. Write
about 50 words. You have 10 minutes.

Hello Sara,
What do you think about the decrease of 10% of my working salary? I can’t believe they are going to
lower my salary and work the same hours. If you ask me, the family should offer me fewer hours of
work if they plan to pay less. I just signing up and already a decrease of my salary.

Juan
Now, write an email to the host family who sent you that private message, explaining Commented [2]: Me gusta mucho cómo lo has esrito.
¡Sigue así! :D
your feelings about the change and suggesting possible alternatives. Write about 120-
150 words. You have 20 minutes.

Dear Sir or Madam

I am writing in relation with the previous e-mail and I want to show you my disagreement about the
decrease of 10% of my working salary to take effect from next week.

I have been working with you for three weeks and I feel It is unacceptable to decrease my salary so
soon after signing up. I think you should rethink the my salary decrease If I am not doing my job very
well.

I would like to suggest several alternatives:


1. First of all, personally I believe that If you have to decrease my salary, you should reduce my
working hours.
2. Secondly, If you do not want to reduce my working hours, I would love you to pay me monthly
a transport card to be able to travel around the city.

I look forward to hearing back from you If my recommendation is acceptable if not, I will look at other
job offers.

Thank you for your attention.

Yours faithfully.

Juan
