The EL Fellow Program fosters mutual understanding, promotes English Language learning and enhances English teaching capacity abroad. Through projects sponsored by U.S. embassies, EL Fellows share their professional expertise, hone their skills, gain international experience and learn about other cultures. EL Fellows model and demonstrate up-to-date Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) classroom practices that help foster thoughtful and responsible behavior in students and teachers of English.
