What is mother help?
Mother help is simply to live with a host family like a family member while taking care of the host's home child. It's about a homestay program where meals are added along with free accommodation instead of being a host child's sitter.
In the United States, many women return to work immediately after delivery, and it is common for them to work together. Therefore, the service to take care of your child is very useful. As well as working moms, sometimes you need a break and want to do something you like in your spare time! The relatively wealthy people are being used.

Homestays, dormitories, room sharing etc. can be listed as destinations for international students to choose from, among them homestays.
As a family member, I spend time with my family and always have a chance to speak English and I have a good chance to improve my speaking ability. The ability to experience American culture is also a great attraction. It is important to put yourself in an English language environment to improve your speaking skills.
Communicating as you care for your child will inevitably improve your listening skills and you can expect to improve your speaking skills. You can learn grammar if you go to a language school, so if you use what you learned in school in practice with mother help, you can do input and output well.

If you join Mother Help, you will be able to stay in the US at a bargain price, as it will be free of charge, as well as with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Los Angeles is particularly expensive for housing. For example, if you try to share a room in Santa Monica or a popular public area, the monthly rent is 150,000 to 200,000 yen, which is Zara.
However, if it is mother help, there is no need to worry about the cost of accommodation, and there is no need to pay for food. You can go to a language school and enjoy sightseeing in your free time, so you will not only save money, but you will also be able to live a good cheap study abroad life.

The work as mother help is mainly as follows.
