definition of family

A host family is a family consisting of at least one parent and one child under the age of 18 that invites an au pair from a foreign country for a specified period of time.

languages of family

Danish is the first national language. English is the second. Often more than one of Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, English or German are fluently spoken.
