Dear Anonymous,

Thank you for reply!
Yes, it’s true that Macedonia has a rich culture and many stories to tell.
Maybe the Macedonian government will also decide to open a Macedonian Corner in the US and this will definitely be a great idea!
America is the home of people from different nationalities and opening a Macedonian Cultural Center and promoting the Macedonian culture will of course contribute to the diversity.

The goal of the American Corners is not only to promote the American Culture. Among other, we serve as an Alumni center for Macedonians who have been to the US, people who want to improve their English come to Conversation Clubs, there is a Story Hour for small children, we do trainings such as Public Speaking, PR, Program Management etc. – and you can get a certificate upon competition, which you can state in your CV.
All of this is FREE!

If you want to go and study in the USA, you can come to us too. The Educational advisors will help with the application process.
Free of charge.

We are well aware of the unemployment rate in Macedonia, so no need to burden or members with membership fees…
ALL our services are free.

We hope that maybe you could come and visit any of the three corners (Skopje, Bitola and Tetovo) and see the benefits of becoming a member yourself.
You are welcome to come every working day from 10:00 to 20:00 or Saturdays from 11:00-16:00.

We will be expecting you!

Actually, there is a Macedonian Cultural Center in New York City that presents the Macedonian culture. This center as well as the American Corners is a great benefit for cultured, open minded people who want to learn more about other cultures! If you are intrested to learn more about this center you can contact the Macedonian Ministry of Culture for further information.The "point" is exchanging of cultures enriches oneself.
