The University of Notre Dame is hosting its ninth Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) orientation for the upcoming academic year. Sixty teachers from 28 countries, representing 15 languages, are staying on campus Aug. 9-13 (Saturday-Wednesday) and will attend a series of workshops designed to enhance their teaching in the United States.
The orientation prepares the teachers, most of whom have never been to the U.S., for the academic year ahead, when they will go to an American college or university. Sessions during the orientation will cover topics ranging from academics, including successful language teaching methods, to cultural introductions such as shopping and tipping in America. The Fulbright teachers’ experience on campus will include dinner at Legends and lodging in Ryan Hall.
