Saulet Alpysbayeva

For many years now at Indiana University, the Department of Central Eurasian Studies (CEUS) has welcomed Fulbright Language Teaching Assistants (FLTAs) from the Central Eurasian region into CEUS classrooms. The Fulbright FLTA Program as part of the larger Fulbright Program, works to deepen U.S. citizens’ knowledge of foreign languages and cultures, while allowing international teachers to enhance their teaching skills on U.S. campuses.

Today the IAUNRC sat down to speak with Saulet, the 2015-2016 FLTA from Kazakhstan.
