Teaching and learning English creates an opportunity for the U.S. to foster interaction among foreign audiences about American values and culture. For this reason, English language is the focus of one of the five core programs that support the vision of American Spaces to connect the world with the U.S. English communication occurs daily in all types of American Spaces: American Centers, American Corners, and Binational Centers. English may be the means of communication in performances, lectures, and exhibitions that take place in American Spaces. Many of the books, magazines, and materials available at American Spaces are printed in English. Some American Spaces host formal English language classes or tutoring sessions.
