The Office of English Language Programs

The U.S. Embassy supports a variety of programs and activities to promote quality English and expose foreign audiences to American society, values, and culture.

The Office of English Language Programs provides guidance on cultural enrichment activities, academic expertise, advisory and consultative assistance, and materials resources.  In addition, the Embassy oversees several exchange programs that bring American academics and specialists to Israel to conduct activities related to training, methodology, and curriculum development.  Many local EL professionals are selected each year to participate in professional development and leadership exchange programs in the United States.
