The American Center at the U.S. Embassy Dhaka is pleased to announce the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) program for 2020-21. The primary goal of the FLTA program is to strengthen foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities, while providing teachers of English and related fields with the opportunity to refine their skills, increase their English language proficiency, and enhance their knowledge of the United States. The FLTA is a nine-month non-degree program that is non-renewable.
FLTAs from Bangladesh typically teach Bangla-language classes to American students. Teaching Assistants and their students will have a unique opportunity to learn about each other’s cultures and to build mutual understanding between the United States and Bangladesh. Fulbright FLTA participants may assist in 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. Coursework is offered on either an audit or credit basis. Fulbright FLTA participants will also be expected to facilitate cultural events, language clubs, discussion groups, and language tables. They will also interact with their host community through other extracurricular activities and community outreach projects.
