The U.S. Embassy in Tashkent welcomed 25 American English teachers this week to begin 10-month teaching and professional development programs throughout Uzbekistan, joining local teachers to provide direct classroom instruction to students.

The group includes 17 English teaching assistants, early-career instructors who will co-teach with local English teachers in classrooms from 10th grade to the university level, and eight English Language Fellows (EL Fellows), seasoned educators in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) who will enhance English teaching capacity at the university level.

Fifteen of the teaching assistants are part of the U.S. Department of State’s Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) Program and two are returning ETA alumni participating in the U.S. Embassy Tashkent’s English Language Educator program to continue their English teaching support in Uzbekistan. EL Fellows hold Master’s degrees in TESOL or a related field and have an average of 10 years of teaching experience.

The 25 American educators are from all over the United States – from California to Florida – and will support English language teaching and learning in 11 different regions of Uzbekistan. They will also serve as cultural ambassadors for the United States, fostering mutual understanding between the United States and Uzbekistan, while at the same time enhancing English language education by demonstrating up-to-date best practices in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).
