Course assistants are international exchange or degree students who act as native peers for students learning the assistant's native language. There are course assistants in most of the Language Centre courses. They work together with Language Centre teachers and help language learners e.g. with pronunciation, group work and discussion skills both in and out of the classroom.
The idea of the Course Assistant Programme is to invite international students who are native speakers of certain languages to assist in Language Centre teaching. This gives international students the opportunity to meet Finnish students, and it brings new aspects to language learning and teaching. Finnish students in turn get to know international students and learn more about their languages and cultures.
