Benefits of Hosting an FLTA:
By hosting an FLTA, you will further the goal of increasing mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries. At the same time, an FLTA can enhance and complement your teaching of foreign languages in many ways. FLTAs add an energetic, up-to-date cultural component to foreign language classes as well as to student life on your campus in general. The availability of having an FLTA to host language tables, lead conversation sessions, and be involved in other co-curricular events offers U.S. students the possibility of working with a native speaker in a multitude of settings. This interaction with a representative of the language and the culture can make the studying and learning of the language much more meaningful and real.

Post-secondary accredited institutions wishing to host a Fulbright FLTA are free to tailor the program to meet their unique needs. FLTAs often teach beginning and intermediate classes or offer tutorial sessions to improve students’ language acquisition. On many campuses they serve as directors of language houses or language floors, offering students unique access to the target languages.

Please forward this message to your colleagues in other language departments who may wish to apply to host a Fulbright FLTA. We look forward to receiving your application and to partnering with you.

The Fulbright FLTA Program is only available to colleges and universities.
