The Free Graduate TESOL Guide
The English Language (EL) Fellow Program fosters mutual understanding between the
people of the United States and those of other countries by sending talented, highly
qualified U.S. educators in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other
Languages (TESOL) on ten-month fellowships to overseas academic institutions in all
regions of the world. The program promotes English language learning and enhances
English teaching capacity abroad. Through U.S. embassy projects, Fellows share their
expertise, hone their skills, gain international experience, and learn other
cultures. Upon returning to the United States, they share their experiences and
acquired knowledge with their communities and professional colleagues.
