Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program
The program strengthens foreign language instruction of Arabic in American institutions while providing young Egyptian teachers of English as a second language (ESL), as well as teachers of American studies, literature, and journalism and media studies, with opportunities to refine their skills, increase their English language proficiency, and expand their knowledge of American society. FLTA fellows teach a maximum of two Arabic classes at host institutions. They enroll in at least four courses (two per semester), one of which must be in U.S. studies. They also facilitate cultural events, language clubs and language tables in their host institutions.
