I always use "American Tongues" in my Intercultural Communication class to
illustrate a variety of things about language and communication.  I also refer
students to the DARE site for more on language in the US.

My husband, Richard Wiseman, teaches at Cal State Fullerton
(rwiseman at  He also uses the film in his intercultural
communication class.  He wrote the instructor's manual for a widely used text
for this course (Gudykunst & Kim, Communicating with Strangers) and in the
manual recommends use of the film.

Hope this helps!
