Eight Nigerian teachers have been sponsored to travel to the United States to teach the Yoruba language and culture in universities and colleges for one academic session.

The teachers will travel to the US under the 2023 Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA).

The US Missions in Nigeria disclosed this via Instagram account on Saturday

According to the message, the beneficiaries are expected to polish their teaching skills and share their experience in American society to solidify the relationships between the two countries.

“Join us in wishing the 2023 Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA) scholars a rewarding teaching assignment!,” the US Consulate said.

“Eight Nigerian teachers are departing for the United States to teach Yoruba language and culture to American students in U.S. universities and colleges for one academic session.

“During the program, participants will refine their teaching skills and extend their knowledge of the society and culture of the United States while strengthening the ties between Nigeria and the United States.”

The Fulbright FLTA Program is a nine-month, ECA-funded, non-degree program for early career (not more than seven years of teaching experience) English teachers or professionals in related fields to teach their native language in an American college or university.
