Global is a six-level general English course, taking adult learners from Beginner to Advanced level. It is information-rich, sophisticated in both presentation and approach, with international appeal, combining challenging content, intelligent topics and cross-cultural awareness, and features none of the celebrity-driven lifestyle content often found in typical general English courses for adults.

Global is a true multimedia course, with a number of digital components integrated into the course structure. It takes full advantage of the learning possibilities opened up with the combination of book and multimedia-based content. Moreover, the 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.
