English Language Programs

The U.S. Embassy funds and supports a variety of programs to enhance opportunities to learn English.  The funds are made available by the English Language Program of the State Department’s Education and Cultural Bureau. The aim is to support teaching English as a second language in primary and secondary schools, universities, teacher training colleges, and language resource centers.

The Embassy 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, curriculum development, needs analysis, textbook development, program evaluation, and English for Specific Purposes (ESP).

If you are a teacher or a principal and would like to receive notifications about current opportunities, please register  for the embassy’s mailing list.

2012 English Language Fellow (ELF)

  • Thread 2012 English Language Fellow (ELF) Miranda Hogsett worked with Bedouin women and students from Amal Hura Rabin to publish an English-language magazine featuring their writing. Entitled “Our Fingerprint: Bedouin Women Making A Change,” the magazine gives Bedouin women a voice and discusses their perspective on Bedouin culture and traditions.  Miranda’s 10-month fellowship, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, exposes students to American culture and helps to improve their English language skills. Her work helps to promote the empowerment of young women and the sharing of cultural values.
