  • Description
    CapEnglish is a dynamic, fun company and we are urgently looking for our next Language Assistant in Lyon, South France.

    As an LA you will gain invaluable classroom experience, whilst fully immersing yourself in French culture. You will work alongside the local French teachers but in English. You'll teach around 15-20hrs a week to young learners, 8-11yrs old.

    Your immersion continues at home as you will be living with a host family. Accommodation and meals are provided and you'll also receive a small monthly income. In return, you will help the family with their kids for a few hours per week (6-8hrs max).

    This is a great opportunity for young teacher who wants to grow in their international teaching experience as well as improve their French language skills.

    Our LA position in Lyon will be a 3-month CDD contract, starting in January. There is a small possibility to remain a further 3 months with the host family (to be discussed)

    The school: private catholic school in the heart of Lyon. This establishment enjoys a good reputation and offers a very friendly and supportive teaching team.

    The family: this host family is a lovely family of 5. The father is a musician and the mum is a property manager. They have 3 young boys (from 4-12yrs). They love music, lego, and outdoor activities.

    The location: Lyon is the third largest city in France, after Paris and Marseille. A Roman military colony called Lugdunum was founded there in 43 BCE, and it subsequently became the capital of the Gauls. The city is recognised for its cuisine and gastronomy, as well as historical and architectural landmarks; as such, the districts of Old Lyon, the Fourvière hill, the Presqu'île, and the slopes of the Croix-Rousse are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Well connected by train, you have easy access to many other beautiful landmarks throughout France, including Paris.

    Requirements: Must be a native English speaker, eligible to work in France (we cannot offer visa support), and passionate about working with young kids.

    At the end of the contract, there could also potentially be further teaching options with CapEnglish.  We have schools all over France that we partner with.
