Language Teacher Assistant in Australia!
Here is a new testimonial! This one is from Tina, a 27 years old German girl. Currently, Tina is a teacher assistant in Australia.
The Language Teacher Assistant program in Australia is a program allowing students who want to become teachers to live and teach in Australia: during the program, participants assist a teacher of their native language.
This program is a great opportunity for students since they will become fluent in English and acquire practical teaching skills that will be useful once back home. Here is Tina's interview. When she did it, she had been in the program for 2 weeks!

- Explain how you feel about your duties and the expectations of the school. I assist the German teacher in the classroom and prepare exercises at home. It is good to see that I can support the students in learning German.
