English Language Programs and Resources
The Regional English Language Office (RELO), part of the Media and Cultural section of the United States Embassy in Bangkok, seeks to improve English language learning and promote the effective use of English as a medium of global communication in Southeast Asia (Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam). Our activities also help to foster mutual understanding between Americans and peoples of other nations.
