The English Language Specialist Program sends U.S. experts in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) to work on high-level, short-term projects that contribute to the host country’s capacity to teach English and post’s public diplomacy goals. English Language Specialists support two-week to three-month projects at a variety of institutions and levels, mainly in the areas of teacher training, materials writing, and curriculum development. The program can also provide Specialists via digital video conference (DVC) or webinar, as a standalone program or as one element of a multi-phase program.  Through the EL Specialist Program, English teaching professionals worldwide gain improved access to informed and diverse perspectives on a broad variety of pedagogical issues, enabling them to broaden their perspectives and convey concepts about American society, government, and values.
