CAPS in a life changing opportunity for people to come to Spain as a Conversation Language Assistant, live with a volunteer host family and help students in their school improve their English skills.

The CAPS programme lasts for one academic school year (nine months September/October to the following June). We are looking for committed, young, dynamic and creative people who are ready to take on a life changing experience. Each assistant needs to be willing and committed to help Spanish students from infant, primary or secondary schools improve their level of English by assisting the main teacher for 25 classroom hours per week.
