American Corners

About American Corners in Kyrgyzstan

The “American Corners” Program was launched in Kyrgyzstan in 2003 as a partnership between the U.S. Embassy Bishkek and local institutions.  An American Corner is an information resource center modeled in the American style with the purpose of providing comprehensive and up-to-date information about the United States, and thus promoting mutual understanding between the American and Kyrgyz people.

Today there are 5 American Corners in Kyrgyzstan serving the populations of Jalalabat, Batken, Talas, Kant and Karakol.   Each center is equipped with public access computers with Internet connection, audio and video equipment, copy machine, and satellite TV.  Corners’ libraries include reference materials, books, ESL resources, CD, videotapes and DVDs.  American Corners are open to every citizen who is interested in learning more about the USA.  The Corners hold a variety of programs such as English Language Club, Movie Night, Conversation Classes, holiday celebrations, lectures by guest speakers, and Fulbright fellows.
