The University of Notre Dame is hosting its eighth annual Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) orientation for the coming academic year, bringing foreign language teachers from 28 countries to campus Aug. 5 through 8 (Monday through Thursday) for a series of workshops designed to enhance their teaching in the United States. The program also will introduce them to important features of American culture in preparation for their teaching experiences across the country.

Most of the scholars participating in this year’s orientation have never been to the U.S. and will participate in workshops covering everything from how to prepare a syllabus to the rules of American football. See the schedule of events for a complete list of workshops as well as other orientation details.
