Key Features

The American JETSTREAM concept combines engaging content, exposure to relevant language, and enjoyable learning activities to help students use their English effectively in class, at work and in life.

Interesting topics, thought-provoking images, opportunities for personalization - like You first! - and a wealth of purposeful tasks and game-like activities keep American JETSTREAM students motivated for successful learning.

For many learners of English, speaking is the most important language skill. American JETSTREAM offers varied speaking activities and Language in Action sections which review and practice functional language. Videos provide stimulus for discussion and emphasize the importance of body language in communication.

Grammar is introduced gradually, always in context, with realistic and meaningful practice activities. Reviewing and recycling take place in Reviews and a complete Grammar Reference is included.

American JETSTREAM includes extensive vocabulary input to ensure students learn all the high-frequency words and expressions they need. Vocabulary Plus pages enrich learning while features such as Focus on, Preposition park and Wordbuilder focus on the uses and meanings of new lexis.

We know how busy and demanding a teacher’s life can be. That’s why American JETSTREAM comes with a Teacher’s Guide which takes you through each lesson, step by step. There’s a wealth of support online, too, including extra material and practice tests, which makes American JETSTREAM extremely enjoyable to teach with.

American JETSTREAM is informed by some of the key principles of Holistic Learning. These include the beliefs that different learners prefer different kinds of input, engaging students’ emotions benefits learning, and that good teaching and good material can boost students’ confidence.
