The Public Affairs Division of the U.S. Embassy Abuja requests for applications for the Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program from qualified Nigerians with a desire to teach Hausa or Yoruba languages and cultures to American scholars in U.S. universities and colleges in 2021.

The Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program is structured to offer young foreign teachers a chance to teach Yoruba language and culture to American scholars in tertiary institutions and colleges. The program also affords an opportunity for candidates to refine their teaching aptitudes, increase their English language adeptness and extend their knowledge of the cultures and traditions of the United States by taking part in non-degree education while reinforcing the instruction of foreign languages at U.S. colleges and universities.

Becoming a part of the program carries with it a huge responsibility. Together with their studies, candidates teach language classes, oversee language labs and lead language table dialogues. They may also function as resource individuals in conversation cohorts, cultural representatives, assistants in language laboratories, coordinators of extra-curricular undertakings, guest speakers in civilization programs, head of language clubs, houses, tables and so on.
