Language Assistants

Part of a knowledge economy is an understanding of other people’s language and culture.

Learning a language is so much more than attending a class, studying grammar points and memorising words – a language is a communicative tool, enabling us to converse and understand others – languages need to be spoken!

Come to Ireland and teach your own language whilst living in an Irish family home. You may be asked to assist younger children with homework, revise specific oral and written skills for **Junior or Leaving Certificate students or simply speak your language to all the family!

You should be a university student or a recent graduate and have the ability to teach your own language. You must have some previous teaching experience, a good knowledge of your own language and culture and a keen interest in travelling and foreign languages.

You can choose to attend English language tuition whilst working as a Language Assistant or you can select the Language Assistant 10+5 option.

**Secondary level school students in Ireland aged between 14-18 years old, sit a State exam, either the Junior Certificate or the Leaving Certificate. In both cases, students are required to do an oral and written exam in the languages they are studying. Language Assistants can help students achieve a higher mark in these exams.

"My name is Laura, I’m 25 and I’m from Spain. Last year I decided to go abroad to live a new experience, that is why I went to Ireland to work as a language assistant.
Everything I can say about my stay in Ireland is good! So I really encourage everybody to do the same if they want to go abroad, improve their English and meet new people and a new culture".
