Specialist Program

English Language Specialists assist U.S. Embassies in delivering and maintaining quality English language programs overseas and promoting mutual understanding between the United States and other countries. U.S. Embassies identify and define the English Language Specialist assignments, which may include teacher training, curriculum and textbook development, or host institution program evaluation. In some cases, digital video conferences or webinars are used to deliver trainings or consultations.

There are many benefits — both personal and professional — for those in the program. In recognition of the work that they do, Specialists also receive a competitive benefits package.  For more information on these benefits, click here.
