LTS graduates go on to work all over the world, work with various levels and ages, and teach a variety of languages. Here are some of the positions that the class of 2016 have been offered:
Katie: I will be going to Oaxaca, Mexico, to work in the language department of a local university as a teacher/researcher and eat lots of enchiladas.
Siri: I’m going to resume my work at the Royal Thai Armed Forces Language Institute, Thailand.
John: I will be teaching Spanish part-time at our local high school (Triangle Lake) and teaching German part-time at Gutenberg College, a small private college here in Eugene.

Sara: I am heading to a Chinese and ESL teaching position for elementary third grade students in a public school in Beaverton, OR. I will be teaching Chinese and English language arts and other immersion program subjects in Chinese, such as Math and Science. I am excited to be heading to this wonderful opportunity.
Kateland: I’m going to be teaching in Indonesia with the Peace Corps for two years starting in March, 2017. I will be in a rural secondary school in either East or West Java, where I will co-teach English with an Indonesian counterpart, as well as take part in community and youth development.
Annelise: I’ll be teaching English at a university in Oaxaca, Mexico, where I will hopefully also get to be involved in curriculum design.
