There are course assistants in most of the Language Centre courses. Course assistants are international exchange or degree students who act as native peers for the local students learning assistant's native language. 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.
NB! All teaching at the Language Centre will be carried out online during the autumn term 2020. You can apply to become an online course assistant using the link below. It is highly recommended that you attend the course assistant info session before filling out the form. The info session will be organized 4 September from 15:15 to 16:45 in the Festive Hall at the Language Centre. NOTE: due to changing circumstances, the info session might be organized on Zoom. More information will be published in August.
