CapEnglish is currently looking for a Language Assistant (LA) to intern in the South of France.

As a LA you will gain invaluable classroom experience, whilst fully immersing yourself into French culture. You will work alongside the local French teachers, but in English. You'll teach around 20hrs a week to young learners, 3-11yrs old.

Your immersion continues at home as you will be living with a host family. Accommodation and meals are provided and you'll also receive a monthly income. In return we ask you to help the family with their kids for a few hours per week (up to 7hrs max).

This is a great 6-month opportunity for a young teacher who wants to grow in their international teaching experience as well as improve their French language skills.

The school: private catholic school in the heart of Nimes. This establishment enjoys a good reputation and offers a very friendly and supportive teaching team.

The family: this host family is an extremely lovely family of 6. The father is a French Banker and the mum is American, and happens to also be a teacher herself (so some extra teaching advice at the ready). They have 4 sweet kids ranging from 2-12yrs.

The location: Nîmes is a city in the Occitanie region of southern France. It is famous for its many Roman remains, which are mostly in an excellent state of preservation. Visit the magnificent Arena or take a stroll through the vibrant city, enjoying local French cuisines. Well connected by train, you have easy access to many other beautiful landmarks throughout France, including Paris.
