Uzbeks come to Durham Tech


Karin Abell shares information on Durham Tech’s ESL program with a group of education leaders from Uzbekistan who visited on Aug. 1 as part of the US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP). The Uzbeks were specifically interested in learning more about ESL programs in the US educational system, including integrated programs for teaching ESL and testing and evaluation. IVLP, which began in 1940, seeks to build mutual understanding between the US and other nations through short-term visits to the US for current and emerging foreign leaders.
