American JETSTREAM Intermediate

Stimulating topics, extra vocabulary and an emphasis on speaking help students to use their English effectively in work and life

American JETSTREAM Intermediate develops students’ language and skills enabling them to use English effectively in work and life.

  • Communicative roleplay activities, based on scenarios and dialogues, develop students’ interactive speaking skills
  • In Mini-talk tasks students prepare their ideas and present their talk to classmates, practicing productive speaking skills
  • Listening reflects a variety of real-life situations, including conversations, interviews, talks, reports and radio shows, and focuses on listening sub-skills
  • A Song, Poem, Video or Music Link in every unit encourages students to use English in a fun and less formal way
  • Optional Video tasks ask students to record an oral presentation on camera and share with others
