A welcome day has been held for the language assistant courses offered at UIC Barcelona

For the second consecutive year, UIC Barcelona and MEDDEAS decided to work together.  MEDDEAS  specialises in support services for bilingual and plurilingual education in schools. 

MEDDEAS language assistants are native English speakers from the UK, the US and other English-speaking countries who receive tuition from UIC Barcelona via two courses and a postgraduate degree which are all taught online.

Additionally, students then go into schools all around Spain to work as language assistants.  This helps school pupils to improve their pronunciation in English and learn how to prepare for official English language examinations.
