How does culture affect the classrooms English Language Fellows teach in? Every fellowship project is unique, and Fellows’ classrooms offer exciting opportunities to build cultural awareness and teach in new contexts. Twelve Fellows shared photos of their global classrooms as part of the #MyClassroom social media campaign on the English Language Fellow Program Facebook page. We compiled these classroom photos, along with quotes from the Fellows, into this fun #MyClassroom video.
These classrooms cover the world geographically, from Cameroon to Panama to Kyrgyzstan, and represent the different types of environments that Fellows experience on assignment. In this video, you’ll see teachers who work at universities, sometimes in libraries or language labs, with a range of technological capabilities and in diverse climates. English Language Fellows have the chance to experience new cultures and customs in their classrooms, along with the opportunity to develop new skills.
The commonality these classrooms share is the fact that they’re filled with eager English language learners and the Fellows who are dedicated to teaching them. The pride Fellows take in their classrooms and students shines through in their photos.
