How does American Headway deliver lessons that really do work in class?

Short answer: methodology.

Headway's balanced methodology combines the best of traditional approaches - solid grammar and practice, vocabulary development etc - and newer approaches, such as communicative role-play and personalization.

Authors Liz and John Soars have developed a set of principles which "... is a summary of all we believe when writing and teaching."

Here are three examples:
i) Grammar has a core place in language teaching and learning.
ii) A wide variety of practice tasks in all the four skills are essential to language learning.
iii) Everyday expressions, particularly of spoken English, also need a place in the syllabus. These can be functional, social, situational, or idiomatic.

Now, American Headway Second Edition adds a new generation of digital support to that classic methodology.

Top of the list of new resources is the Teacher Resource Center.

It's a password-protected bank of online resources which includes images, animated grammar PowerpointRG slides, video, worksheets, and more.

With a fast-find browser function, it's quick and easy for you prepare lessons your way. Find out more at

American Headway Second Edition also includes a new emphasis on testing to help students prepare for standardized international exams such as the TOEFLRG iBT. This includes new Spotlight on Testing lessons in the Workbook and access to a complimentary online practice test via the Student Multi-ROM.
