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.

Pros
  • Explore a new city
  • Lots of language practice
  • Meeting new people from different country and culture
Cons
  • 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.

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