The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA), is a nine-month, State Department-funded, non-degree program for early career English teachers or professionals in related fields (e.g. American Studies, American/English Literature, etc.). Participants have the 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 their native language to U.S. students and strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. Colleges and universities.

Fulbright FLTA participants also interact with their host communities in conversations groups, extracurricular activities, and community outreach projects. Fulbright FLTA participants must return to their home countries upon completion of the program.

Fulbright FLTA participants may assist up to twenty hours of language classes a week and are required to enroll in at least two courses per semester, one of which must be in U.S. studies. Course work is offered on either an audit or credit basis. Participants will also be expected to facilitate cultural events, language clubs and language tables.
