ELI Welcomes Brazilian High School English Teachers to UA
The UA English Language Institute (ELI) and the Capstone International Center (CIC) are pleased to be hosting a group of 30 high school English teachers from Brazil for a special six-week program of study (January 12 – February 23, 2013).
The customized program of study for this group consists of non-credit classes offered by both the ELI and the Office of International Programs in the UA College of Education. Instruction for the participants is designed to improve their English language proficiency, improve their knowledge and understanding of appropriate methodology for teaching English as a foreign language, and give them the opportunity to investigate life and culture in the United States.
The University of Alabama was selected by the Institute of International Education (IIE) as one of 18 universities in the US to host a group of high school English teachers from Brazil. Funding for the program is provided by the Ministry of Education of Brazil, and participants were selected from thousands of high school English teachers in Brazil.
The ELI and CIC are very pleased to welcome each member of this group of high school teachers to the UA campus!
