English Language Officers Worldwide

English Language Officers (ELOs) organize and participate in teacher training seminars and workshops, advise posts on questions pertaining to English teaching, conduct needs assessments, and offer guidance on all aspects of an academic program. ELOs consult with host-country ministry, university, and teacher-training officials, as well as lecture and present workshops on EFL methodology and practices. ELOs also work closely with USIA/USIS-related English Language Programs (Binational Centers, USIA/USIS Direct English Teaching Programs, and USIA/USIS Affiliated English Teaching Programs). 

In addition to Washington-based ELOs , thirteen officers are assigned overseas. Three of these officers have country responsibilities and are located in these countries:

* Brazil 
* Russia 
* Turkey 
The ten other officers are based in the following cities and responsible for the region indicated: 
* Dakar (Senegal) - West Africa, Sahel, Ethiopia 
* Pretoria (S. Africa) - Southern Africa, Madagascar 
* San Jose (Costa Rica) - Central America 
* Jakarta (Indonesia) - East Asia 
* Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) - East Asia 
* Amman (Jordan) - Jordan, Syria, Israel, Gaza, West Bank 
* Cairo (Egypt) - Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Yemen 
* Tunis (Tunisia) - North Africa, Mid East Gulf 
* Tashkent (Uzbekistan) - Central Asian Republics, the Caucasus 
* Vienna (Austria) - Central/Eastern Europe
Close contact with English teaching professionals in the United States and abroad ensures that the ELOs reflect the best of American scholarship in their field programs. Online services and teaching resources are provided through the Internet.
