They share expertise in American English and culture with local teachers and students, while participating in and discovering the culture and customs of their host country.

“I enjoy promoting this wonderful opportunity to other teachers and I also enjoy being a part of the process of connecting the right teachers to the right projects. I know how great my experience was with the English Language Fellow Program and I want to be able to make that happen for other teachers.”
