About Meddeas

Meddeas is a Spanish organisation with presence in five countries that supports multilingual teaching in more than 200 educational centres. It offers the opportunity to teach English in Spain through Language Assistant programmes and provides consultancy services. Recent graduates from all the main universities in the US have already joined our programmes.

“Having arrived knowing only a few key phrases like ’una cerveza por favor’, being immersed within the language and culture ensured I quickly developed my knowledge of the language and by the end I could cope fairly well. I am now MFL co-ordinator in my school.”

“Since I have arrived in Bilbao everything has been great. I have not experienced any problems and Meddeas is often contacting everyone on the program with information, so I feel secure that if I did have any issues Meddeas would be available to help me at anytime. I am enjoying my experience so far thoroughly. I love living in the city and meeting new people but most of all I love working with the children. The school is wonderful and so are the children and staff."
