READ MORE
All of the qualified Language Assistants selected by Meddeas hold at least one official European qualification: a Bachelor’s in Pre-school or Elementary Education, or any degree plus a Master’s in Secondary Education. They are also independent English users, with a minimum IELTS band score of 6 or equivalent.

Visa assistance

The school will receive support for visa administrative procedures. We have partnered with a Designated Sponsor Organization to assist in the J1-Visa process so that our Language Assistants are cared for and ready to teach.

Issuing a visa is often a cumbersome and time-consuming task. Meddeas facilitates this process for the school by providing clear steps for all the parties involved, and guiding the Language Assistant until the visa is obtained.

Constant support in the U.S.

The school can rely on us to deliver an orientation session and to guide the Language Assistants in the U.S. Our dedicated Support Team works closely with the participants and schools.

Upon arrival in the U.S., Language Assistants need guidance on how to open a bank account, how to get around or sign a rental contract. Meddeas provides ongoing support and relieve the school of those matters. Participants also have a 24/7 emergency contact if they need immediate assistance. This is possible thanks to our partnership with a Designated Sponsor Organization.

Advantages of Having a Qualified Language Assistant from Spain

A qualified Language Assistant from Spain in your school is a unique opportunity to promote intercultural understanding, and ensure that the students become fluent in the Spanish language.

The students and the staff have the chance to learn first-hand the Spanish language, which is the second most spoken language in the world, by number of native speakers. Spain is the origin of the Spanish language, and our selected Language Assistants are linguistic models.

It is a marvelous opportunity to include a native Spanish speaker with a degree in Education, and who has been trained in the European school system, in your school. Our Language Assistants can implement innovative teaching methods that will certainly add to your academic repertoire.
