Student teacher Eva from Germany has just arrived at her host school in Lithuania where she will work as a teaching assistant for the coming three months.
Carlos from Spain relives plenty of great memories when he returns to Lithuania after the end of his assistantship there. Both Eva and Carlos received assistantship grants through the Comenius programme.

As Comenius Assistants, future teachers receive an EU grant to spend 3 to 10 months in a school abroad and where they assist in teaching.
This is an opportunity for them to boost their language skills, get to know another European country and its school education system and improve their teaching skills. Schools profit from hosting a Comenius Assistant as his or her active involvement helps increase pupils' language skills, their motivation to learn languages and their curiosity about other countries and cultures.
