Au pairs AND Au pair language courses

I am hoping there are other mums out there with au pairs. We have a Spanish girl coming in September and I'd like to be able to introduce her to some other local au pairs and also get some advice on where to send her along to English language courses.

We are experienced au pair hosts and when we first started this, Waltham Forest College used to have good and relatively cheap courses for au pairs where they could actually meet other APs too. In recent years, the timings have been terrible (clash with school pick up time) and they've gotten much more expensive. Plus, our AP was usually the only AP in the class, everyone else was much older, which was kind of a bummer for them.

They've experimented with classes in town, again with mixed results.

I really need to get next year's AP back on a 'traditional' AP track, meeting other local people, going to pubs around here etc. We've had a complicated couple of years where the girls haven't really settled because they've tried to rely too much on activities in other parts of London.

Can anyone help?
