More than 250 schools around Spain participate every year in our programs. Meddeas has delegates in the main areas (Madrid and North Spain) and its management knows each and every school participating in the program personally.

Accommodation details:
There are two lodging options: full board accommodation with a host family or independently housing, depending on your own interests. Families in these programs are linked to the school and chosen by its principal. In fact, they host the Language Assistant on a volunteer basis to experience a cultural and linguistic immersion.

The main idea of this cultural exchange is that, while out of the school, Language Assistants will spend half of their time interacting in English with the family and the other half interacting in Spanish, traveling or enjoying their spare time as they want. During the program, the family will cover meals and accommodation expenses.

What does a language assistant do?

  • Deliver conversational English lessons during the requested weekly hours.
  • Encourage oral practice in English.
  • Explain the culture of your own country.
  • Help in other subjects apart from English such as science, art, sport.
  • Act as a role model for correct pronunciation and grammar.
  • Collaborate with teaching staff in creating teaching materials and planning lessons.
