Hi all,

Anyone has experience hiring a maid from Mizoram? I'm considering replacing my current Indonesian with one.

They really don't speak English at all? Saw from a website that English is sorta one of their main languages. The maid agency also told me that they have at least 10 years of education in English. Do you currently have one or had one before? I am also currently considering getting a helper from Mizoram, as an alternative to Myanmar helpers.

Hi,

I hired one for my mum for housekeeping before and she's a graduate according to her profile.
No choice have to hire her even she's graduate as she the oldest. The rest likes 22 or 23 yo and have a face look like 17 or 18 yo.
Her English is poor, don't understand even I used the simplest english and speak in slow pace.
But she can clean very well.
Maybe she's a graduate, she's quite proud and she would comment if she think what we ask her to do is unreasonable to her. For eg, we ask her to clean the room everyday, then she will comment since no once sleeping in one of the room, no need to clean everyday.
We got her from Maid Specialist.
Decided to terminate her after 1.5 yr because realised she bullying my mum and aunt.

i guess some Mizoram maids can speak good english, but definitely not all.

if can telephone interview the maids, then can tell if their english is good.
