 The Fulbright English Teaching Assistant (ETA) program is a collaborative effort between the Unites States and host countries around the world. Bringing together newly graduated American university students with local English teachers, the program offers English language teaching and cross-culture learning to the host country. In Taiwan, the program first started in 2003 in Yilan county, and has since expanded to other areas including: Kaohsiung, Kinmen, Taipei, Taichung and Taitung. In order to know the impact of the program, much research has been conducted by visiting professors, scholars, and our research team over the past several years.
