The Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP), funded by the US State Department and administered by American Councils, places fully funded EFL teachers from China, Egypt, and Morocco in US K-12 host schools for an academic year. The exchange teachers teach either Mandarin Chinese or Modern Standard Arabic, and will also serve as a cultural resource in the host school and community. TCLP funds teachers’ salaries, healthcare, R/T airfare, training, PD funds, and ongoing program support. Host schools provide mentorship and community support for TCLP teachers. The program also offers additional partially funded options. TCLP is a GREAT way to start or grow an Arabic or Mandarin language program at your school. An online informational webinar for potential school applicants will be livestreamed on December 8 at 4 pm EST.
