U.S. Embassy and English Language Teachers’ Association (ELTA Serbia) will provide English language instruction to 25 students, ages 13-15, from economically disadvantaged families in Belgrade. The program will target students who have excelled academically and have limited opportunities to study English.
This program will give the Access 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 also 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.
The English Access Microscholarship Program is currently seeking qualified English Teachers to start classes on October 13, 2014. Classes are Monday through Friday, 3 hours weekly for two years.
The English Access Microscholarship Program is also seeking qualified English Teachers for Intensive sessions which will take place in January 2015 (one week).
