Læger uden Grænser looking for a French tutor

Do you have experience tutoring in French language to Danish speakers? Then we have a volunteer position for you at Læger uden Grænser.

Læger uden Grænser sends medical and non-medical profiles to provide emergency medical relief globally. One important skill for everyone working for MSF is the ability to communicate effectively. Our field teams are made up of people from all around the world, and when they find themselves together on the front lines of the world’s humanitarian crises, it is essential that they understand one another. That’s why we insist that our international field staff be able to work capably in English, French or Arabic, which are the primary languages of communication in different MSF projects across the globe.

As many MSF projects overseas are in French speaking countries, many Danes interested in going to the field with Læger uden Grænser take French classes during their pre-field preparation phase.

For our doctors, nurses, midwives, HR administrators, improving their French and working in a different language can help them grow professionally and communicate more strongly with their staff and teams in the field.

Læger uden Grænser is looking for a volunteer who is willing to put in a few hours weekly or monthly to be matched with those who are preparing to be expats in a French speaking country in the field with MSF. Many of our profiles are taking online classes through Rosetta Stone and are looking for support with the course. Do you have experience as a French language tutor or teacher and are able to work with people with various levels of experience with the language? Do you have the flexibility to do sessions on Skype or meet in person locally in Copenhagen? If so, please send a CV and application to us.
