Launch of American English Website and "Trace Effects" Video Game

Dec 13, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- The U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs announces the launch of the new American English website, an extensive online resource center for teaching and learning about English language and U.S. culture, and its innovative video game, Trace Effects .


The website provides a variety of engaging, up-to-date materials and resources for teachers' professional development and for use with students in the classroom. It also offers free, high-quality, non-commercial English language learning resources directly to public audiences and strengthens the skills of English teachers and teacher trainers.

The video game Trace Effects, an expanded webinar series, distance education programs and other innovative, interactive elements are available on the site.

Trace Effects , a 3D video game experience geared for students ages 12-16, supplements classroom English lessons. Students explore American culture through puzzles, activities, and adventures in an interactive world. Through the game, students take a virtual journey through the United States, traveling to locations, including Kansas, New Orleans, the Grand Canyon, New York City, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. The game is also available in DVD format for both teachers and learners.

Promoting English language study is an integral part of the Department of State's efforts to foster mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries. For more information please contact ECA-Press@state.gov .
