The Role of a Language Assistant
During one academic year, participants will teach 20 hours a week in one of the 200 schools Meddeas works with. A Language Assistant is a native-level speaker of English, French or German, who supports the school’s language teachers and helps students with conversation practice. The tasks differ from the ones in a teaching assistant role and include encouraging oral practice of the foreign language; explaining the culture of their home country; helping in other subjects such as science, art, P.E.; acting as a role model for correct pronunciation and grammar; and collaborating with teaching staff in creating teaching materials and planning lessons.
After teaching English abroad, Language Assistants add transferable skills to their CVs, such as public speaking, language skills, creativity, team working, topic preparation, patience, maturity, autonomy, and cultural awareness.
Desirable candidate profile:
– Native-level English speaker
– Recent graduates (last four years) OR last-year university students
– No previous teaching experience needed (but valued)
– Someone who enjoys working with children and/or young people
– Energetic and creative
– Competence in the Spanish language is not required
– No criminal records
Desired Skills: intercultural skills, cultural awareness, creativity, language skills, team working, public speaking, patience, maturity, autonomy

Our Language Assistant programs are open to recent graduates and students about to graduate. We also have specific programs for undergraduates.

Meddeas offers participants support from professional and experienced staff during the challenging process of moving to a new country and choosing a valuable training.
