    Panfilov village, Kyrgyz Republic - Gulnaz Emilbekova is a grade 10 public school student who hopes to become an airport dispatcher - someone who communicates with flight crews about safety regulations, weather conditions, and flight plans. To do that, she needs to achieve a certain competency in English. "I used to learn English from books, but never heard it in real life," says Gulnaz, who lives in the northern part of the Kyrgyz Republic, near Kazakhstan. "We don't have foreigners in our village."
