Global aims for students to learn English as an international language. To this end, Macmillan Education has created a truly globalised six-level course for adults filled with topics and texts from all around the world and dealing with such varied subjects as politics, Shakespeare, couch surfing, cinema, employment, and mindfulness.

Global focuses heavily on critical thinking with its topics and activities to ensure that learners are engaging with the language in a meaningful way. It also features a wide range of literary sources and authors such as Zadie Smith, Nick Hornby, JRR Tolkien, Margaret Atwood, George Orwell and Charles Dickens, amongst many others.
