The English Access Microscholarship Program is currently seeking qualified English Teachers to start classes in autumn 2017. Classes are Monday through Saturday, 3 hours weekly.
U.S. Embassy and English Language Teachers’ Association (ELTA Serbia) provide English language instruction to groups of 25 students, ages 13-15, from economically disadvantaged families in Belgrade, Nis and Bujanovac. The program targets students who have excelled academically and have limited opportunities to study English.
This program will give the teachers the opportunity to be part of a committed and professional team. Teachers will learn and share best practices in English teaching and grow professionally. This experience will strengthen their opportunities to participate successfully in their community’s socio-economic development and apply for future U.S. educational and exchange programs. In addition, the participants will become familiar with many aspects of U.S. culture and thus develop a deeper understanding of current issues in U.S. society.
