A language assistant in your school


Spanish storytelling at Clayport Library

The British Council will accept online applications from schools which wish to employ a language assistant up until 31 May 2017.

Language assistants are native speakers of French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese and Irish who have just arrived from a native-speaking context. Their up-to-date knowledge of their local culture makes them ideally placed to work with students on developing their conversational skills and increasing their understanding of other cultures. They can revitalise the skills of language teachers too.
