English Language Specialists assist U.S. embassies in delivering and maintaining quality English language programs overseas and promoting mutual understanding between the U.S. and other countries. U.S. Embassies identify and define the English Language Specialist assignments, which may include teacher training, curriculum and textbook development or host institution program evaluation.

In her role as an English Language Specialist, Christensen conducted teacher training workshops for two weeks with 60 secondary school teachers at the Jawahar Lal University. They worked on adapting English textbooks and materials teachers are currently using, focusing on how to make classrooms more student-centered and communicative.
