HE "ASSISTS" THE CLASS THREE TIMES PER WEEK: WRONG!!!!!!!
This sentence is used by Spanish people a lot and I guess I hear it frequently because we organise English classes for companies. The mistake comes from the fact that Spanish people translate the verb "asistir" into "to assist" but this is wrong.
The real meaning of "to assist" in English is "to help". For example: "I need to assist him with his application".
So the correct way to translate "asistir" is to use the verb "to attend". For example: "Last week I attended all my English classes".
Hope that helps!
