In this latest video Professor David Crystal talks about which ‘English’ we should be teaching our students.
It is a very appropriate video for English teachers.I simply love global and I have made use of activities in my classes sent by MacMillan. Keep sharing&gather blessings.
I will show this video to my students as it is clear and interesting.Thank you
I am an ESL trainer in India for the last 30 years. In the Indian KPO sector, it’s mandatory to understand American and British English. I have a variety of Indian English snippets to offer from the corporate training rooms.
-Very interesting video! Clear ideas for students. I will show it to my students.
This has been a topic in my advanced classes for some time. As a teacher in Switzerland, I’m in the minority teaching in American English. Sadly, I find very little in the standard coursebooks that reflects or even points out the differences between the many varieties of English. This is a great little clip for all teachers, publishers and even students. Thank you Macmillian for publishing this great Global coursebook.
I’m a Brit living in Argentina,I teach English to all ages. I can’t wait to try out Global on my adult students, but it’s not available here yet!! Please hurry up dispatch!!
I´m on the verge of using Global and I´m excited to do so quite soon. Hope to get along well with the series. Bye for now
Hi there William,
Thanks for your comments. Prof Crystal is very good at explaining these trends and changes in language – the ‘Global English’ articles in the series are really fascinating.
I hope you do enjoy using Global. Let us know how you get on with the course!
All the best,
Charlie and the Global team
