A QUICK TOUR OF ALL FEATURES

MOTIVATING TOPICS

Motivation is key to learning! JETSTREAM has been written to be highly motivating for students, and includes interesting perspectives on relevant topics, stimulating and thought-provoking images and lots of personalization activities.

THINKING AND MEMORY

Encourage creative and critical thinking with THINK, GUESS and S – similar or different exercises. Focus throughout on memory training as a crucial component in adult learning. The more students exercise their memory in English, the more it will serve them in other aspects of their life.




GRAMMAR IN USE

Clear, concise grammar is introduced gradually, in context with realistic and meaningful practice. There is frequent recycling and review in the review section every two units. At the end of the Student’s Book, there is a full Grammar Reference section.


BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

The Explore feature offers an opportunity for students to go beyond the page and find out more about some aspect of the topic. They do the research online, make notes, and report back. There is a natural mixed-ability element to this activity. For schools that would like to integrate mobile devices into the classroom, these activities are an ideal opportunity to do so.


YOU FIRST!

Build students’ confidence by involving them and allowing them to use the language they already know. Helps the teacher target the teaching more effectively too!


SPEAKING

There are speaking activities at all stages of a lesson in JETSTREAM. They range from carefully controlled activities in Elementary to listening and reading texts that offer opportunities for more open and stimulating discussion in higher levels.




FOCUS ON VOCABULARY

JETSTREAM has a high vocabulary input with lots of practice and consolidation throughout. Flexible Vocabulary PLUS pages can be used in a variety of ways and provide an opportunity for vocabulary enrichment.

LANGUAGE IN ACTION VIDEOS

Lively video featuring engaging situations with familiar characters in visually appealing settings. Students are exposed to everyday language that they can practice on their own with the accompanying audio.


REVIEW AND CONSOLIDATION

Review sections every two units contextualize the language through reading or listening texts, allowing students to consolidate and put to use the language acquired. The Workbook provides further practice including a Review Quiz and a Check Your Progress test.


CROSS CULTURE

A regular feature offering an opportunity to reflect on and discuss cultural differences and similarities worldwide. There is usually a short reading text with a task, often leading to a discussion and a comparison with the students’ own culture.




STORIES

Four lively and enjoyable new stories written specifically for JETSTREAM provide practice in extensive reading, where students can read for meaning and pleasure without necessarily studying the text in detail.
