This website is intended to expand
outreach to audiences and exchange alumni abroad; to
provide free, high quality, and non-commercial English
language learning resources directly to public
audiences; and to strengthen the skills of English
teachers and teacher trainers.  Audiences who may
benefit from the resources on the American English
website include teachers, students, government education
officials, teachers' organizations, exchange program
nominees and candidates, and other key contacts. A
combination of interactive elements, including Trace
Effects, expanded webinar series, and distance education
programs will help to increase access to American
English language learning, teaching and U.S. culture and
to build a global brand of "American English."
