Functions of American English is for adults and young adults at high intermediate and advanced levels who need to learn to communicate effectively with the English they have acquired.
FUNCTIONAL ORGANIZATION Students learn how to persuade, make suggestions, ask for information, apologize, and so on.
COMMUNICATIVE APPROACH Students engage in Communication Activities pair and small group work in which each participant receives some information that the others don't have, which creates the "uncertainty" essential in genuine communication.
SKILLS Listening comprehension and speaking are emphasized. Reading and writing skills are also practiced in every unit.
Functions of American English consists of a Student's Book, Cassette, and Teacher's Manual. the Cassette includes conversations showing the functions in use, and the Teacher's Manual has extensive suggestions for using the materials in the classroom.
"Students...engage in [the communication activities] with enthusiasm, their interest piqued and their judgement satisfied that the exercises are useful. The words of one student at the completion of an exercise 'It is important. I love it.' constitute a persuasive recommendation for the use of this lively text in the classroom." Modern Language Journal
"The authors deserve credit for having produced a good tape and well-organized, creative materials which utilize effective methods of simulating the kind of communication in the classroom which the students can transfer to their real-life situations." TESL Canada Journal
