Regional English Language Office (RELO)
RELO is based in Lima, Peru and provides service to the Andean Region (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela). It supports public diplomacy outreach through English language teaching and training.

It cooperates with Ministries of Education, Bi-National Centers, professional teachers’ associations, Fulbright, Peace Corps, public and private universities and other higher education institutes, among other partners, in order to build a stronger understanding between the peoples of the Andean region of Latin America and the U.S. by furthering excellence in English language instruction and by incorporating civic, leadership, cross-cultural and information technology skills into the modern language classroom.
