Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (Flta) Program 2012
The Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of State as a key component of the National Security Language Initiative, provides young college teachers of English or those training to be teachers of English, an opportunity to refine their teaching skills, increase their English language proficiency and extend their knowledge of the cultures and customs of the United States while strengthening the instruction of foreign languages at U.S. colleges and universities. Applicants must be between 21 and 29 years old at the time of application. Selected FLTA fellows from India will teach Bengali, Hindi, and Urdu at select U.S. campuses during their nine-month grants. Additional Indian languages may be offered.
