Fulbright English Teaching Assistant

My experience as a Fulbright fellow teaching English in Athens,Greece was the most memorable experience of my life. I worked directly with bilingual students on helping them increase their English language proficiency.My teaching duties were at a private Greek school.I also became involved with the American Corners program at the United States Embassy and was able to promote the English language and the United States by traveling around Greece giving presentations to various English learners.

I found the Greek people to be very open and friendly. Although adjusting to the language was difficult at first, after taking lessons and immersing myself in the culture I slowly began to understand and really make my home there. I joined and English teaching organization and made many friends that were doing the same thing, and I also met many people through my Greek classes. It was the most amazing experience of my life and I would recommend the Fulbright program to anyone.
