Panama Bilingue
This is a joint venture between Tulane University and the Panamanian Ministry of Education. Panamanian primary and secondary English teachers come study at Tulane for eight weeks, where they learn about U.S. culture, receive advanced English instruction, and fine-tune their English-teaching capabilities. Our goal is to increase English competency as well as improve English pedagogy. Students come to Tulane twice a year- in spring and in summer.

TA Evaluation


Display your proficiency to employers and grad schools through our English Language Passport system.

The English Language Passport (ELP) is a unifying system that guides the students’ learning by setting language targets and documenting their progress. Based on the Council of Europe’s European Language Portfolio, the ELP is an online portfolio of files that displays the English proficiency of the learner by linking documents that meet the language targets.

The EAPP courses will help you make documents to display to potential schools and employers. Below are three examples:
