Teachers of English: The Center for Language Education & Development CLED offers professional development opportunities for teachers of English as a Foreign Language (EFL). The Teaching EFL (TEFL) Certificate Program is designed for individuals seeking to gain a grounding in EFL teaching methodology as well as learn from supervised teaching practice. This program has been developed by our Center which has extensive experience in the field. Our faculty have trained teachers from countries including Spain, Georgia, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Korea, Japan, Lebanon, Turkey, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Colombia, El Salvador, Panama, and of course, here in the U.S. The English Language Fellows Program places teachers with postgraduate degrees in TEFL/TESL, Applied Linguistics, or related fields to work on U.S. Embassy projects around the world. The Program is funded by the U.S. Department of State and is administered by Georgetown’s Center for Intercultural Education and Development (CIED). CLED is actively involved in the screening, selection and nomination processes, as well as the pre-departure preparation.
