California Lecturer Wins Prestigious Fellowship To Train Teachers in Tanzania

LeeAnne Langton, a lecturer in the English Department at Cal State Long Beach (CSULB), has been selected for a prestigious Senior English Language Fellowship for 2012-13, an honor that will have her training English teachers and developing curriculum for 10 months at St. Augustine University in the East African country of Tanzania.

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by Georgetown University, the English Language Fellow Program fosters mutual understanding, promotes English language learning and enhances English teaching capacity abroad by supporting highly qualified U.S. educators in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) as they participate in 10-month-long fellowships at academic institutions throughout the world.

“This is a dream come true for me.  I worked in East Africa as a member of the Peace Corps, and when I returned to the U.S., I enrolled in graduate school at CSULB.  Ever since then, I’ve wanted to go back,” said Langton.  “When my daughters went away to college this year, I was recruited for the fellowship by the State Department.  The CSULB English Department gave me permission to accept and I’ve been excited ever since.”
