Meet an American
“Meet an American” is primarily a speaker program, allowing the Moldovan audience to get to meet native American speakers, converse with them, practice their English language skills and learn more about American culture.
For these sessions, the speakers prepare interesting topics based on their field of expertise: English language, diplomacy, culture, entrepreneurship, rule of law, etc.
Spelling Bee Contest for High School Students
In the USA, spelling contests date back to the early 1800s. Since 1925, the National Spelling Bee is held annually and stands for a huge part of American culture and language.
Each year, America House organizes a Spelling Bee Contest for high school students. By preparing for this competition and taking part in it, participants learn and practice the American standardized spelling, develop self-confidence, communication and public speaking skills, and the ability to thrive under pressure.
The Book Club
The “Book Club” meetings take place on the last Saturday of each month and aim to encourage America House visitors to read more in English, discover American writers, and borrow books from the America House library.
Each month a different book is selected from the America House library based on the theme of the month. Participants are not required to read the entire book or know about it before the session. During the meeting, they get to know more about the author and learn interesting facts about the book and the context in which it was written. They read portions or chapters from the book and have a guided discussion on what they have read.
The “Discover Moldova” program is a series of six events, organized by America House Chisinau in partnership with ANTRIM. The program aims to present the various touristic sites across Moldova to American visitors: U.S. Embassy staff, diplomats, Peace Corps volunteers, Fulbright scholars, exchange students, and others.

This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of the efforts to promote programs that prepare students for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
