Zerafshan Valley - to the Yagnob. Would you like to join ZTDA and invited journalists on the 5day expedition
to the Ancient Sogidana?
In the 1st millennium B.C., Soghd (Sogdiana or Sogdia) was a center of a developed ancient civilization with
high levels of culture, arts and crafts. In the VIIIth century the troops of the Arab Caliphate invaded Central
Asia, and with fire and sword spread a new religion – Islam. The Sogdians escaped to this inaccessible
mountain gorge. At the eastern edge of the Zerafshan Valley, it is still possible to hear the Sogdian language
spoken. This was the language of the Persian kings – the language of Roxanne, the wife of Alexander the Great.
This Yagnob Tour combines walking in some of the least frequented mountains of Central Asia as well as
exploring extinct culture, meeting with people speaking language echoes from thousands of years ago.            Dates of t

The U.S. Embassy Dushanbe Public Diplomacy Section is pleased to announce the 2011-2012 competition for
the Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) Program.
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the FLTA Program is a
nine-month non-degree program aimed at strengthening foreign language instruction at U.S. colleges and
universities, while providing current or future teachers of English with the opportunity to refine their skills,
increase their English language proficiency, and extend their knowledge of U.S. society and culture. FLTA
participants also interact with their host communities in conversation groups, extracurricular activities, and
community outreach projects. FLTA participants must return to their home countries upon completion of the
FLTA participants may assist in or teach up to twenty hours of language classes a week and are required to
enroll in at least two courses per semester, one of which must be in U.S. Studies. The remaining coursework
should relate to their careers in English language teaching. FLTA participants will also be expected to facilitate
cultural events, language clubs, and language tables.
All FLTA participants receive free tuition, a monthly stipend, accident and sickness coverage, and travel
FLTA participants will be required to attend an orientation arranged by ECA during the summer of 2011 before
arriving at their host institutions in August. FLTA participants will also be required to attend a mid-year
enrichment workshop that will be hosted by ECA in the United States to share and discuss foreign language
teaching best practices and their current teaching experiences with other FLTA participants.
Applicants must be teachers of English or in training to become teachers of English, and at minimum must
possess the equivalent of a U.S. Bachelor’s degree by June 1, 2011 to allow time to submit an official transcript
prior to the start of the FLTA Program. Fluency in English is mandatory, demonstrated by a score of no less
than 550 (paper based TOEFL); 213 (computer based TOEFL) CBT); 79-80 (internet based TOEFL) IBT) or
6.0 (overall score International English Language Testing System) IELTS). Satisfactory TOEFL or IELTS
scores should be obtained from candidates prior to inviting them for the interview stage, if possible. Applicants
must demonstrate maturity, dependability, integrity, and professionalism. Applicants must be residing in their
home country throughout the nomination and selection process.
Applicants must be at least 21 years old and no more than 29 years old by the August 27, 2010 application
deadline. The FLTA program does not support dependents or family members. By extension of this policy,
pregnant candidates may not participate in the program if the birth is due during the program period.
Selection will be based on the candidate’s leadership skills, ability to motivate students to learn, and interest in
teaching Tajik language and culture to U.S. students. Ideal candidates for the FLTA Program have a desire to
meet people and become a part of their host community by participating in community events and campus
activities. FLTA participants should also be creative and self-reliant team players, who are able to maintain
excellent relationships with faculty, staff, and students. Preference will be given to those candidates who have
little or no prior experience living in the United States. Participants must be flexible with placements at smaller
or more ethnically diverse U.S. academic institutions in order to meet the goal of the FLTA Program to place
participants in all 50 States and at diverse institutions.

Our specialty:
E-tickets are our specialty. We feature electronic ticketing for the international community in Tajikistan
An e-ticket (electronic ticket) is a paperless electronic document used for ticketing passengers, particularly in
the commercial airline industry. Virtually all major airlines use this method of ticketing.
The principal advantage of e-ticketing is that it reduces booking expense by eliminating the need for printing
and mailing paper documents. Another advantage is that it eliminates the possibility of critical documents
getting lost in the mail or being sent to the wrong address.
A passenger traveling on an electronic ticket is given a copy of the itinerary. This document is not a ticket, but
it indicates that you do have an electronic ticket.
For many people, the fact that you cannot lose the ticket is the saving grace of an electronic ticket. Many people
who have accidentally left their paper ticket at home or the office have been able to retrieve the information at
the airport.
Electronic tickets eliminate this possible stress, particularly for frequent travelers; not having to worry about a
forgotten ticket is a big advantage.
