Employ a Language Assistant

Hosting a Language Assistant in your school is an ideal way to improve language learning for your students.

Language Assistants are native speakers of French, Spanish, German, Italian, Chinese, Russian and Irish and are usually between 20-30 years old. They can work with your students to improve their language skills, increase their cultural awareness and boost their confidence.
