Apply for the Opportunity for English Natives

Opportunity for English Natives: Erasmus In School is a free online platform that connects teaching assistants with schools or companies across the world. Depending on the placement providers, some opportunities cover accommodation and a stipend for living expenses.

As a language assistant, you will support the main teacher in the teaching of a foreign language.

The role of a language assistant is to improve the pronunciation and verbal fluency of pupils and teachers, develop the listening comprehension, share their culture, and contribute to the creation and development of international school projects.

All language assistants must have a criminal record certificate issued by their country of origin as well as medical and visa insurance if necessary.

Teacher assistants will be provided a competitive hourly pay of $15-20, visa support, ongoing training and flight reimbursement. There are currently openings in Taiwan, Reunion, and Spain with LA positions that provide monthly remuneration, meals, and, in some cases, housing.

Application process is ongoing.
