From £1250
Duration 28 - 84 Days
Live in the beautiful city of Montpellier in Southern France, learn the language, embrace the culture, meet new friends, and most importantly help your host family learn English.

This is the perfect opportunity for all native English speakers who would love to further and develop their French language skills, whilst simultaneously teaching their host family English, helping them build on their already established understanding of the language. It’s a win-win situation! And with the Mediterranean only 15 minutes away and the old Cevennes Mountains nearby, Montpellier is idyllic, beautiful and cultural, so it is the perfect place to become immersed in learning, experiencing new things and meeting new people.

For those taking a gap-year this opportunity is perfect because it enables you to gain experience from teaching and learning; its numerous faculties mean that you will be surrounded by students in all fields of study who are your age (law, sciences, art and literature, etc.), and its low cost of living will make it easier for you to socialise and enjoy yourself! Food and accommodation will never be an issue in this internship, as your host family will welcome you into their home, give you your own room and provide you with 3 meals a day.

Lacking teaching experience is also not an issue because you will be provided with course books, a starter pack with some great ideas of activities, and recommendations for good dictionaries and grammar book to refer to, as well DVDs, books, magazines and newspapers in English help you plan fun and interesting lessons. There are also a wide variety of free web resources available with useful teaching tips and printable worksheets etc, so you won’t be put too out of your comfort zone!
