《走遍美国》(Family Album, U.S.A.)电视影集,代表了极高的制作水平。它的编剧兼导演William Greeves,以及动画制作群英会Dovetail Group, 都曾几度获电视界最高荣誉的艾美奖(Emmy Awards)。它的演员都是优秀的专业演员,美语发音清晰,体态语言丰富,和常见的一些粗糙作品不可同日而语。

  《走遍美国》这套教材,是以快速增进听说能力为主要目标,但也同时兼顾了语法、阅读和写作能力的全面培养。它把语法教学巧妙地结合在“学习焦点”(Focus in)一节中,用轻松的歌谣、说唱、卡通、游戏等方式,使原本枯燥的语法学习,变得活泼有趣,达到寓教于乐的效果。
