“This is an opportunity to learn new skills in a teaching environment, even if teaching is not a future career goal: skills such as classroom management and of course organisational, planning, time management along with many other skills. Overcoming challenges within the classroom on a regular basis improves your ability to adapt and use your initiative in certain situations. Learning a new language is another great advantage, even though it is difficult to learn the language, it is still a positive experience,” Kealan M., former Language Assistant with Meddeas.

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.
