We work together with our partner organisations overseas to provide opportunities for young people to work as language assistants both in the UK and 14 countries around the world. We aim to improve both the language ability of the assistants and students in addition to expanding their cultural awareness.

In 2012-2013 we have sent over 2,500 English Language Assistants overseas and are hosting 2000 Foreign Language Assistants in the UK.
