"Global" is a new six-level general English course for adult learners. It is an information-rich course, sophisticated in both presentation and approach. It has international appeal, combining challenging content, intelligent topics and cross-cultural awareness. It features none of the celebrity-driven lifestyle content often found in typical general English courses for adults. The Global approach is fully aware of the needs of today's learners, and places an emphasis on effective communication in English between both native and non-native speakers. "Global" helps users to learn English, to learn about English and to learn through English, and is the ideal course for students who want to communicate in a global environment.
