Global is a 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 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 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. The comprehensive Global Teacher's Book pack contains a wide range of materials for teachers using the course. These include background information and language notes, lesson plans, answer key and ideas for adapting 'global' activities to local contexts. There are also specialist essays, focusing on key aspects of language teaching, written by a range of well- known and award winning ELT guest authors and teacher trainers.
