“My Fulbright ETA grant experience has been both professionally rewarding and somewhat unexpected. I applied for the grant to gain experience working in international education and also, in part, to practice my French. Despite these expectations, when I learned about my placement in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium, I decided to see where the experience would take me, and I never regretted it. In the end, I got an opportunity I never otherwise would have to learn about a completely new language and culture, which has contributed so much to my professional and personal development while in Belgium”.

“Now a graduate teaching associate in the English department at the University of Tennessee, I still find myself relying on practical knowledge I acquired during my time in Belgium. Having already developed a course curriculum, prepared lectures, led classroom discussions, and graded written assignments as an ETA, I felt prepared to begin teaching college composition courses in the fall.”
