The ultimate goal of a Language Assistant is to make students speak! A communicator has a natural talent for making people feel relaxed and confident, so that they can speak in a foreign language without feeling embarrassed.

Despite being young, a Language Assistant is essentially a professional. The school expects them to fulfill the duties and responsibilities assigned. A professional is hard-working, committed and respectful. A professional is never late, wears a formal outfit and shows politeness.

There is something inside that pushes people forward. Someone proactive has ideas of their own and dares to put them into practice. No one has to tell them what to do. When other people stand still, someone proactive takes the initiative and makes the first move!
