Fulbright Teaching Assistant Program
The FLTA program, established in 1968, aims to strengthen foreign language instruction at U.S. educational institutions by establishing a native speaker presence. Participants in this program teach their native language to American students at colleges and universities all over the United States. The FLTA Program provides a unique opportunity for young, international teachers of English to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency and extend their knowledge of the cultures and customs of the United States while engaging in nine-month non-degree studies. FLTAs add an energetic and up-to-date cultural component to foreign language classes as well as to student life on U.S. campuses. This interaction makes studying and learning languages much more meaningful and real.
