Host a German Language Assistant
German for Young People
© Mat Wright
German Language assistants are native speakers of German who have just arrived from a native-speaking context. Their up-to-date knowledge of their local culture makes them ideally placed to work with students on developing their conversational skills and increasing their understanding of other cultures. They can revitalize the skills of language teachers too.
Details of how to apply for a modern language assistant for the 2019/20 academic year can be found on the British Council Website.
