Foreign language assistant

Over the past few years, we have been able to welcome native speakers to our school that have supported us in the process of language learning.
They help the students in lessons, give them support in their project work and are a great asset for our school. The students have the chance to practice their conversational English skills in and after the lessons.

The exchange program for foreign language assistants celebrated its 100th anniversary in the school year 2004/2005, which makes it the oldest of all exchange programs.
Supported by the PAD (Pedagogic Exchange Service), young people from Great Britain, Ireland, the United States and the Czech Republic were given the opportunity to assist the teachers at Schiller-Gymnasium for the duration of one school year.
“Being native speakers they have so many different ways to make foreign language teaching authentic, realistic and really motivating for the students [...]” (‘Wegweiser’, PDA, Bonn, 2006, p. 11)
