As an EAL Teaching Assistant, you do not need to necessarily speak the language of the children in question, but the ability to speak multiple languages and the understanding of what it takes to learn a language and immerse yourself into a different culture will greatly help.
Your role as an EAL Teaching Assistant will just involve you providing further 1:1 and group support for children in and out of the classroom. It will help massively if you're a creative person, able to think on your feet and outside the box, making learning more visual and creative.
