Besides teaching in Bieberstein, the Language Assistant is encouraged to attend any classes in Bieberstein he or she might be interested in (e.g. German as a Foreign Language), to take part in extracurricular activities and field trips as a supervisor at no extra costs. School terms usually start at the end of August, and end in July with holidays in October (2 weeks), at Christmas (2-3 weeks), in February (1 week), at Easter (2 weeks) and Pentecost (1 week).
