Global Perspectives

Pick up a ‘typical’ general English coursebook these days, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of what you’re going to get, even before you open it. Global moves beyond this to provide a sophisticated, cultured experience for its users – both in content and feel. Our learners are adults and we treat them that way.

Critical thinking skills are promoted throughout Global, both in the choice of topics and in the way the material is exploited. Learners are asked to engage with the material at much more than just a superficial ‘language’ level.

Global Perspective has a strong emphasis on literary sources, and features a range of well-known classic and contemporary authors.

Global Perspective is a five level course that takes students from Beginner through to Upper Intermediate level.
Available now: Beginner, Elementary, Pre-Intermediate, Intermediate, Upper Intermediate.
