The Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program is a program designed for early career English educators. The FLTA Program is a nine-month, non-degree program funded by the Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA) aimed at strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and universities and even some high schools. While fellows expand foreign language instruction, this program aims to provide these future English language educators with the opportunity to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency, and expand their knowledge of U.S. society and culture.

Korean FLTA grantees have the opportunity to teach up to 20 hours of Korean language per week, enroll in university courses, participate in campus events and participate in campus life by working with their university’s Korean language club. The FLTA program allows grantees and U.S. students they interact with the unique opportunity to learn more about each other’s respective cultures, societies, and languages. FLTA grantees return to Korea with high proficiency in English and authentic, lived experiences that they can use to speak about the United States, its values, people, and society with authority and confidence.
