The ACCESS Microscholarships program for high school students wishing to study American English has been launched in Yekaterinburg, thanks to the English Language Teachers Association of the Urals (ELTA-Urals) and the English Language Office of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. On December 19 Consul for Education, Culture and Media, Peter Burba welcomed the students of the first ACCESS group in Yekaterinburg and wished them an interesting and successful training. On December 21 the students met with Consul General Marcus Micheli, having been invited to the American Christmas party at Yeltsin Center. The ACCESS Program provides an opportunity for children from low-income families for free English classes twice a week with professional teachers and U.S. textbooks and learning materials. The ACCESS classes are also regularly visited by native speakers and English Language Fellows and Specialists.  During summer breaks, the students take part in the English language and American Studies camps which feature local and American instructors. Learn more about programs and resources for teachers and students at the official page of the U.S. Embassy’s English Language Office.
