  • Description


    We run a language and activity centre that provides trips for English school children and is based in the Yonne (89) in the beautiful Burgundy countryside.

    Our centre specialises in giving the highest quality courses in language tuition through classroom based lessons, artistic and craft workshops as well as a range of sporting activities and cultural excursions. All our work is focussed on the improvement of the French language skills of our visiting children.

    Our aim is to provide a safe and inspiring French language and cultural experience that exceeds the expectations of all children and staff that come to our centre.

    We are looking for a language student from the UK to help support our French teachers in the classroom and for activities and excursions as well as help with the cleaning and washing at changeover time. The role is ideal for students on a gap year after school before studying languages (including French) at University or for those looking for a placement in France during their University course. We also have a few additional positions available in June and July for students at the end of an academic year who are looking for something during the holidays. We do not operate in the month of August.

    All our teachers are French nationals and so this is a great opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the French language as well as the beautiful Burgundy countryside.
