Regional English Language Office

Program Overview

The Regional English Language Office (RELO) opened in the U.S. Embassy in Hanoi in 2015. Part of the Public Affairs Section, it cooperates with the Ministries of Education, teachers’ associations, universities, schools, and English language teaching (ELT) professionals on a variety of educational and cultural exchange programs and projects in order to enhance mutual understanding between the peoples of the region and the United States. The RELO in Hanoi helps to manage English Language Programs in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Lao PDR.

The RELO in Hanoi is one of 25 such offices around the world. Its work is coordinated by the Office of English Language Programs in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in Washington, D.C.
