Cambridge Global English offers a language-rich approach to learning English with an international focus and has been specifically developed to provide comprehensive support for learners of ESL worldwide. The course has been designed to help learners develop the academic English skills they will need to access classroom materials in English across school curricula. The material engages learners actively and creatively with opportunities to participate in a wide variety of curriculum-based activities to acquire content knowledge and practise English language and literacy. Learners can acquire skills and strategies to help them approach new learning situations with confidence. Emphasis is placed on developing listening, speaking, reading and writing skills as well as vocabulary development and language awareness. Learners are exposed to a range of vocabulary with opportunities for using language in personalised, meaningful ways. Stages 7-9 prepare learners for the CIE Secondary 1 ESL Checkpoint test.
