Every year over 100 college and university graduates from the United States teach in Austria under the auspices of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture’s (BMUKK) Foreign Language Teaching Assistantship Program. The purpose of this program, which draws assistants not only from the English-speaking world but also from France, Italy, Russia, and Spain, is to bring talented and enthusiastic young people from abroad into the classrooms of secondary schools in communities large and small all over Austria. Ultimately the job of these native speakers as teaching assistants is to make learning a foreign language a lively cross-cultural encounter for their students.
