The "Teaching Assistant Program in France" offers you the opportunity to work in France for 7 months, teaching English to French students of all ages. Each year, over 1,100 American citizens and permanent residents teach in public schools across all regions of metropolitan France and in the overseas departments of French such as Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique and RĂ©union.

Thanks to a special formal arrangement with the government of the region of Lombardy, Italy, Boston College is pleased to be able to send one student each year to work as an English-language assistant in the schools of the towns and cities of the region (excluding Milan). The program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Students who apply must first secure nomination from the Italian section of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures.

Assistants are paid a stipend, though not enough to meet all expenses of one's stay in Italy. The assistantship can last from three months to a full (Italian) academic year (October through May).

For further information and application forms please consult the SITE Program's website.

For additional information and to apply to the program contact Professor Franco Mormando.
