Real English in your classroom
American Speakout follows a balanced approach to topics, language development and skills work. Speaking activities are prominent, but not at the expense of the other core skills of reading, writing and listening, which are developed systematically throughout.
Build confidence in English
- Authentic, real world language, challenging activities and recycling of language builds student confidence in understanding context and communication.
- Video clips and interviews on the street expose students to a wide range of language and accents, familiarising them with English as it is spoken.
Spend more time on task
- Speakout encourages students to talk and write about their own experiences to help them as they practice.
- Clear objectives in every unit help students focus on what they will achieve so they can see how they are improving.
Achieve personal goals
- Speakout gives students practice in working collaboratively and building communication skills that are essential for study and the workplace.
- GSE/CEFR mapping helps students track their progress and see the relevance of what they are learning.
