"Texts must be interesting enough for students to want to read them
in their own language. Otherwise, how can we expect students to
want to read them in English?"
This is the authors' golden rule when they choose texts and topics
for every level of American English File.
It ensures you get material that learners will enjoy reading and
will want to talk about. Texts such as "Could you live without
money?" really help to generate opinion and discussion.
They create a desire to communicate.
Having created the desire, American English File then helps you to
develop learners' communication skills. One way it does this is
with a strong focus on pronunciation.
Research shows that poor pronunciation is a major contributor to
breakdowns in communication (Jennifer Jenkins: The Phonology of
English as an International Language).
American English File integrates pronunciation into every lesson -
the "little and often" approach. But that's not all.
The unique English File Sounds Chart puts a picture to each sound
in the phonetic alphabet, so learners find it easier to remember
the sounds and, ultimately, improve their pronunciation.
