The U.S. Embassy Speakers Program helps to bring embassy officials in contact with the Bolivian public in schools, universities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and other groups throughout Bolivia. The goal of our program is to broaden understanding of the United States, as well as to promote dialogue and exchange of ideas between Bolivians and Americans. The U.S. Embassy Speakers Program provides an opportunity for English language learners to practice their language skills and to reflect critically on important global issues. Spanish-speaking experts are also available for these type of talks.
Lecturers are available to talk about a wide variety of topics in towns across the country. Among the possible topics of conversation are: U.S. relations with Bolivia and Latin America; the role of the U.S. Embassy; American life, culture, economy, healthcare, and medicine; how to study in the United States (talk in English). Other topic suggestions are welcome. The U.S. Embassy speakers will present general information on the desired topic and then will engage the audience in thoughtful conversations on the subject. Lecturers can address groups of any size, from an individual class to large student assemblies. The U.S. Embassy Speaker Program is a free-of-charge service.
