The Endeavour Language Teacher Fellowships (ELTF), funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations give an exceptional opportunity for practicing, retraining or pre-service language teachers to improve their language skills (in particular listening, speaking) while experiencing the culture of another country through a three-week in-country study program in January 2014.
The successful awarded with the study program will undertake an intensive program consisting of language training, field trips, cultural activities and will have the opportunity to meet local people and experience language immersion in everyday life.
The program offers return airfares, accommodation, tuition, some meals, field trips and cultural activities.
