Conversation Assistant Program

The Principality of Asturias, in collaboration with the University of Oviedo, offers Erasmus students whose native language is English, or who have a good command of it (a series of interviews is held in these cases), the opportunity to collaborate as conversation assistants in English classes at Asturian schools and universities.

The number of Erasmus conversation assistants incorporated into Asturian classrooms has steadily increased in recent years.

The role of the participant in this programme is to strengthen students' oral skills, assisting the teacher in the classroom. At no time will the participant take on solo teaching assignments, and the weekly schedule consists of six hours spread over two days. The Erasmus student may voluntarily participate in other extracurricular school activities.
