NFLC Language Consultant Opportunities

The National Foreign Language Center (NFLC) at the University of Maryland is a research institute dedicated to promoting communication within the United States in languages other than English. We are currently working on a project that provides adult language learners with interactive online tools to reinforce their foreign language skills. We focus on less commonly taught languages. We are currently looking for several individuals to help us launch projects in the following languages:

* Somali
* Yemeni

Minimum Requirements:
* Native, or near-native, proficiency in the target language
* English proficiency
* Knowledge of target culture (current)
* Teaching experience (target language)
* Ability to work with computers

Desired Qualifications:
* Knowledge of ILR scale of language proficiency
* Text analysis experience
* Materials or curriculum development experience

Specifically, we need educated native speakers of these languages (or individuals with equivalent proficiency levels) to create online activities in their native languages using software we provide.

The work is part-time, contractual, and the work can be done from your home computer. All candidates must have permission to work in the United States.

If you are interested in working with us, or if you know a qualified candidate who would be interested in working with us, please contact the NFLC via email at recruitment at nflc dot org and send your current resume or CV with your language in the subject line. Thank you!
