NOTE: THIS POSITION IS CURRENTLY FILLED.
Abstract : Supervised in either French or English, this internship will aim at:

organizing events and activities (conversation workshops, international students welcome parties, games club, debating club, talks in foreign languages...) for university students and staff
advertising these events
designing and posting material online for students to study in autonomy
Place: Language Resource Centre, Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse. This year our tutors are all working on site. However, if the context of the Covid-19 sanitary crisis worsens and does not allow you to work on site, you will have the possibility to work remotely (by running conversation workshops on zoom, skype, hangout...) for as long as necessary.
Period : from 30th August to 19th December 2022 and/or from 2nd January 2023 to 2nd June 2023 (priority is given to students who wish to work for us both semesters)
Deadline to apply: February 5th 2022 (but we review applications when we receive them and we hope to recruit our tutors before then). Your university will need to sign the internship agreement before the begininng of the internship.
Funding: You will earn 3.90 euros per hour (total amount for a full month with 25 hours per week: about 390 euros). In addition, you have the possibility to receive an ERASMUS grant from your home university (usually about 400 euros per month). Please contact the International Relations Office of your home university for more information. You can also apply for student accommodation (rent: 270 euros per month) and for housing benefits ("APL": about 80 euros per month). Half of the transportation costs (10 euros per month for unlimited travel in Toulouse) are refunded.
Information about the Language Resource Centre
The intern will work at the Language Resource Centre, a room located near the department of languages of Paul Sabatier University. Paul Sabatier University is specialized in sciences but our students have English classes as most of them will need to use English in their future professional careers if they work as technicians, engineers or researchers. Some of the students who already have a B2 level in English study Spanish or German instead. There are also French classes for foreign students.
The Language Resource Centre is equipped with computers, TV sets, DVD players and furnished with tables, chairs but also armchairs and bookcases containing magazines, novels, resources to prepare for certification tests (TOEIC, TOEFL, Linguaskill...)
Language skills: as most students are French native speakers and study English, it is essential to be an English native speaker but also to have basic communication skills in French. A good command of other languages would be a plus.
Tutoring skills: some experience or qualification in language teaching would be appreciated.
Digital skills: some experience in event management and social media management would be useful. The intern will have to use communication tools such as Facebook and Moodle.
