The U.S. Mission in Vietnam is pleased to call for nominations of outstanding candidates to participate in the 2015 Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program.
The Fulbright FLTA Program is a nine-month, non-degree program that provides young teachers of English an opportunity to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency and extend their knowledge of the society and culture of the United States, while being teaching assistants for Vietnamese language to U.S students and strengthening Vietnamese language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities.
Fulbright FLTA participants will assist in up to twenty (20) hours of Vietnamese classes per week, and are required to enroll in at least two courses per semester, one of which must be in U.S. Studies. The remaining coursework should relate to their careers in English language teaching. Coursework is offered on either an audit or credit basis. Fulbright FLTA participants will also be expected to facilitate extra curriculum activities, cultural events, language clubs, conversation groups, and community projects.
