Teaching English is one of the most budget-friendly ways to travel, give back to a community, immerse yourself in a new culture, and gain practical teaching experience. Appreciation of cultural diversity and English language skills are increasingly necessary in a global economy. You can help others to expand their personal and professional opportunities, and broaden your own perspective, through your interactions within the school and community. Live abroad while doing something inspiring, fun, and valuable!
API has established strong relationships with schools, language academies, and Ministries of Education around the world to connect teachers, students, and communities. Classroom education experience and foreign language proficiency are helpful, but not required in all destinations. Participants without prior experience teaching English in the US or abroad may wish to enroll in the optional TEFL course we offer. Contact your Program Manager for details.
Cultural Embrace by API is now known simply as API. API (Academic Programs International) has been the parent company of Cultural Embrace since 2012, and API has sent thousands of students abroad since 1997. Our name has changed, but our mission will remain the same. We still aim to transform lives by providing enriching experiential programs abroad that foster increased self-knowledge, cultural sensitivity and understanding of the global nature of our contemporary world.
