Uruguay, U.S. Renew Teacher Exchange Program

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay and the U.S. renewed on Thursday an international exchange program for teachers with a special focus on methods of teaching the English language.

The agreement was signed in Montevideo by Uruguay’s minister of Education and Culture, Maria Julia Muñoz, and U.S. Ambassador Kelly Keiderling.

The Fulbright Commission program allows Uruguayan and U.S. teachers to observe new teaching practices in their respective countries, Keiderling told the press.

“It’s extremely necessary” that Uruguay’s teachers “become acquainted with other pedagogical methods” and familiarize themselves with English, Muñoz said, adding that her ministry has increased its contribution to the program from $60,000 to roughly $100,000.

Regarding the ministry’s assessment of Uruguayans teachers’ competence in English, she said that it is gradually improving.

“We are doing well, but we have to do much more,” Muñoz said.

Also updated on Thursday was the accord between the Fulbright Commission and Uruguay’s National Agency for Research and Innovation to help Uruguayans pursue graduate degrees in the U.S., while American educators teach courses in the South American country.
