What are teachers saying?
"My students and I really enjoyed the Global Upper Int Course - we all found
it stimulating and educative. The students found it challenging, but because
the texts were so motivating, they readily rose to the challenge. Unlike other
course books, it included poetry, English literature, six-word memoirs and
dramatic mysteries, puzzling questions and scientific reasons, which, quite
apart from captivating students, also introduced many of them to new genres.
For me, as a teacher, and for the students, the course book was exciting and
it treated the students as intelligent, inquisitive English adults, not as
learners with a degree of limited understanding - in fact my adult friends to
whom I showed it also wanted to read it!"

is a tremendous book. As its name indicates it's a really simple book
to use and well-organised. I really appreciated the Wordlists as well as
the work on phonetics, while the Language Reference section was very
handy. I also liked the Functional Language section which was the base
of class speaking activities. I would recommend this book to anyone who
wants to learn English."
