A challenging syllabus encourages students to achieve more
The very clear methodology, objectives for each lesson, and carefully staged activities provide students with all the support they need. Every unit opens with a clear vocabulary and grammar presentation to introduce new language.

Mixed ability support
Extensive support for mixed ability classes, with differentiated activities and additional tips in the Teacher's Book helps to save time and ensures that every student can work at the right level for them.

Extra skills practice
Skills Time! lessons provide a strong structured skills programme so students' listening, speaking and literacy skills are continually improving. New and updated content for the 2nd Edition means learners engage even more with topics that are relevant to them.

Fluency Time!
Fluency Time! sections introduce functional, 'Everyday English'. Students learn key phrases that help them in real-life situations, such as introducing people, making arrangements, or communicating at the dinner table. This means students can practice speaking and start holding conversations from the very beginning.

The Fluency Time! sections are supported by a Fluency DVD. Students can see American children using the new language in situations that are familiar to them, for example, at the park and at school. They can also use the DVD as a model to act out their own stories.

There are new project and craft activities in the Fluency Time! sections, too. Kinesthetic learners love the hands-on tasks. Students can use their completed craft projects to practice the Everyday English phrases in a more personalized dialogue.

CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning)
Cross-curricular lessons present language in natural, real-life contexts. Students can learn something new through their English, offering them extra motivation.

21st century skills
Activities that develop students' 21st century skills (creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking) are clearly labelled in the Teacher's Book. These '4 C's' help to develop children's thinking skills and communication abilities, preparing them for using English in the real world.

Phonics is straightforward and fun!
Children learn to recognize and produce the sounds of English, the letters that form them, and the words that contain them. This means each sound is taught in a way that's easy to understand. The progression is specially written for non-native speakers.

Do you need help preparing for tests?
Print-ready and customizable course tests save you time. New additional preparation and practice material for Cambridge English (YLE) and Trinity exams help improve students' exam skills.

Strong values
It's not only about academic success - American Family and Friends 2nd Edition develops the whole child too. The values syllabus, found in the songs and stories, helps children develop social and emotional skills which guarantee success in the classroom and at home.
