Language Assistant Program - Nimes

I was a language assistant with CapEnglish for 6 months in Nimes. I worked at a school there teaching kids from the ages of 4-10. I had approximately 20 contact hours a week. During that time I also stayed with a host family. Overall, it was an amazing experience. I really enjoyed my time both at the school and with my host family. I felt immersed in daily French life and even learnt a little French along the way! As long as you come with an open mind and are willing to face the challenges of living abroad, you'll have a great time! I recommend this program to anyone wanting to start teaching English abroad. Bonne courage!

Language Assistant

Teaching at the school was very enjoyable. I was nervous at first but the pupils were kind, well-behaved and engaged. You will grow attached to them so it was difficult leaving. The teachers were also helpful and quick to come to my aid if needed. Overall the school had a very nice atmosphere and I always finished my day feeling positive.
On days in which I was teaching the younger children (aged 4-8) alone for the Periscolaire group, I felt stressed as I could not control them at all. They were very different to the 10 to 11 year olds I was teaching as an assistant. The school didn't make me aware of how to deal with them ( even after contacting them many times) so I would recommend skipping this and going straight to CapEnglish who can contact the parents of the misbehaved children directly.

  • Explore a new city
  • Lots of language practice
  • Meeting new people from different country and culture
  • Teaching hours weren't consistent
  • Misunderstandings with host family

LA CapEnglish in Nîmes

I worked as the Language Assistant for Cap English in Nîmes for 3 months, it was one of the best experiences of my life. Cap English were great to work with and always ensured that their employees were happy and comfortable. They were so helpful during this whole process as it was my first time teaching and moving abroad. I felt fully supported and I would recommend this job to everyone! As well as that, the school is amazing with lovely teachers and the city is outstanding. Although I didn’t speak French, they were so welcoming and supportive. The children are amazing and eager to learn.

Experience Of A Lifetime :)

After having spent six amazing months working as a LA for CapEnglish, I couldn’t recommend the experience enough. Not only are you welcomed into France by a caring host family who provides all your meals and takes you on holiday, yet the five hours of work a day leave plenty of time for you to explore the city, meet other foreigners, and pursue your own hobbies. Assisting at the school and living with a French family helped me improve my language skills enormously, and I would even say I picked up more French while at work than at the language school. All the teachers at the school were incredibly patient, helpful and welcoming, and I felt accepted from the first moment. I would also like to thank both Riana and Al from CapEnglish for their constant support, and the effort and time they invested into making this experience possible. Whether you are keen on brushing up your French skills, living in a foreign country or just looking for a bit of fun: just do it! You will definitely not regret it.

  • Free accommodation/ meals
  • Fulfilling job
  • Lots of free time
  • No Visa support for travelers outside the EU

Why did you choose this program?

I chose Cap English because I liked their approach to young learners.

As a teacher, it's important for me to share the same values as the institution I work with. Even from the Cap English website, I could see that we were going to be a good match since I could see myself reflected in their paragraphs.

What did your program provider (or university) assist you with, and what did you have to organize on your own?

The Cap English team has helped me a lot from the selection process to the moment I gave my first lesson. Even now, I feel like they have my back with any concerns or questions that I may have.

Cap English have effective communication. Even though they operate throughout the entire country (France), they are just one phone call away and aware of your work, making sure you have everything you need to succeed.

What is one piece of advice you'd give to someone going on your program?

Living, working and studying abroad opens your horizons but it also helps you reevaluate the person that you think you are up until now. You will find yourself eating things that you would never think possible before, meeting people that otherwise you would have never met. By the end of the year, you will know a lot more than just the cliches everyone knows from the country, but also you will know a lot more about yourself.

Get out of your comfort zone and try it! It's possible and easier than it seems!

What does an average day/week look like as a participant of this program?

As a Cap English teacher, your schedules give you time to prepare your lessons with the advice and material they have at your disposition, but you also have time to enjoy life and sunny days in the city.

You would be attending different schools as a Cap English ambassador; some of the material will already be there, so no need to carry around a big suitcase. You'll have free hands to discover your city once the lesson it's over.

Going into your experience abroad, what was your biggest fear, and how did you overcome it? How did your views on the issue change?

When I arrived in France, I knew how to say three phrases: bonjour, s'il vous plaît, merci (good morning, please and thank you), so I panic every time someone spoke to me, but it turns out these three magic words and a big smile are the keys to be well-received everywhere you go.

Now I'm able to speak fluent French, but it took a lot of mistakes and mispronunciations. Practice makes the master; mistakes are just part of the learning process.

Do you have a favorite story you'd like to share?

Funny story...

I found love while dancing salsa. I didn't even like it that much while living in my home country (you see, rediscovering myself) and now I have salsa lessons every Monday with my soon to be husband and I have fun and enjoy it like I never did before. And of course, he became an awesome French teacher for me.
