The Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP) is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year. TCLP is fully-funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State, and helps U.S. K-12 schools to launch new or expand existing Arabic or Chinese language programs. U.S. schools can grow their critical language programs by placing fully-funded TCLP teachers from Egypt, Morocco, or China to teach Arabic or Chinese as a foreign language for an academic year. By sharing their languages and cultures, the teachers bring global competencies to their host schools and communities. Host a teacher in 2017 by starting an APPLICATION today!
Since 2006, TCLP has sponsored 212 highly trained teachers that have worked in 148 schools across 37 states and impacted over 74,000 students! TCLP teachers have also collectively conducted over 14,200 hours of cultural outreach to bring international experiences to their host schools and communities.
