Would you like to see what a Slovenian school looks like? Do you want to teach Slovenian children about your home country? How to make your favourite food or play your national sport?

The World in Classroom is a project coordinated by LLP National Agency with aim to bring together international students with Slovenian schools.

International students can work as teacher assistant, carry out a project with the class, and/or give a lecture on a certain topic, depending on what you and teacher discuss. You can attend language, history, or geography classes, take cooking lessons, or participate in photo/painting exhibitions, blog, play music, etc. (These choices depend on what you would like to do and school resources). 

If you’re interested in participating, you can apply at LLP National agency Slovenia – CMEPIUS.
