About the Global Approach
The GLOBAL APPROACH provides a comprehensive, interrelated framework through which to explore the whole workings of the English Language.
This covers everything from VERBS and TENSES as SYSTEM, WORD ORDER, PREPOSTIONS as SYSTEM, PHRASAL VERBS as SYSTEM, TEXTUAL COHESION (e.g. RELATIVES and LINKING DEVICES), ADJECTIVES and ADVERBS, ARTICLES and DETERMINERS, WORD BUILDING, LISTENING, PRONUNCIATION and SPELLING, WRITING – all accompanied by a host of teaching and learning tips.
There is no rigid order of presentation for the Global Approach (GA). Guidance for this is provided throughout.
