English Language Assistant Program

Offered by the Centre International d’Etude Pédagogique (CIEP), the English Language Assistant Program allows native English speakers to go to France for 7 months to teach English to primary and secondary school students.

The program’s main objective is to permit language assistants to familiarize themselves with French language and civilization while bringing the authenticity of their native language and the richness of their culture to French schools and the children they educate.
