In partnership with Comisión México-Estados Unidos (COMEXUS), Global Launch provided 194 English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers with six weeks of technology-rich, academic, and immersive English curriculum on the Arizona State University campus in Tempe. Participants worked with leading education experts to master advanced teaching methodologies, explored the latest in technology-infused classrooms, identified sustainable strategies for reform, and discussed techniques for supporting a self-initiated, self-directed culture of excellence in Mexico’s public education system.

Since 2015, Global Launch has served more than 400 educators from Peru as part of the PRONABEC program. Participants discussed best practices for promoting bilingualism in Peru’s public education system, examined past and current teaching methodologies, and improved their English language competencies. Goals also included addressing the needs of students in less than ideal situations and creating a vast collaborative network of ideas for teachers to encourage, inspire, and redesign their classrooms. Experiential activities, such as guest speakers, field trips, and an English Ecosystem helped to solidify what the participants learned in the classroom.
