English Language Teaching & Learning

The United States Embassy in Havana provides services and products for English Language Teachers and Learners.

Promoting English Language Teaching & Learning among the Cuban people is one of the primary objectives of the U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs Office, as we know that English language skills are necessary to compete in today’s global market.  In this section, you will find tools to help you learn English and better understand the United States, from its customs to its history and values. These resources are available online and also in our America Center.


English teachers and learners can sign up to participate in orientation sessions at the American Centers to learn about the many tools available online that can help them succeed. Participants also have access to English language teaching and learning resources from the America Center library.
