The English language Assistants in France is a popular and successful programme that gives a unique opportunity to discover the French language and culture first hand. By living and working in France, the English language assistants improve their knowledge of the French language and culture and they also are invested in sharing their English language skills by teaching at various positions in schools, colleges or training institutions.
Every year, young Indian students learning the French language are selected, holding a Bachelor’s degree in French or a DELF B1 diploma along with a minimum band score of 7.5 in the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination. The English language Assistants teach English or assist the English teacher, according to the academic level – Primary, Secondary or Senior Secondary for a period of 7 months.
The programme is an opportunity for them to improve their linguistic skills by living and working in a French environment. On one hand, the French schools receiving the young Indian assistants benefit from their knowledge as native English speakers. On the other hand, assistants help their students to explore the fine nuances of the English language as well as discover the richness and diversity of India and its culture.
