The program provides early career teachers of English as a foreign language, or of related fields such as American Studies, or English/American Literature, the opportunity to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency and broaden their knowledge of the society and culture of the United States, while strengthening the instruction of foreign languages at colleges and universities in the United States. Assistants from Egypt help teaching of Arabic at select U.S. universities during their nine-month non-degree grant beginning in August/September 2020. The participants also interact with their host communities in conversation groups, extracurricular activities, and community outreach projects.
