GE is ideal for Play, Stop & Teach or Learn by Yourself activities, as well as Library Streaming & Sign Out. Alexander Street, a subsidiary of ProQuest USA, with worldwide patrons and library, corporate, school, and governement subscribers, is an eloquent exemple of Library Streaming of GE. You may want to check out this link to Alexander Street's streaming platform: Global English. Alexander Street also streams other related programs that we produced: Teach Yourself English (TYE), Part 1 & 2 , and TYE, Part 3 & 4. GE is a practical self-teaching and teacher's tool, and a suitable supplement to comprehensive academic grammar collections. All explanations in GE have been keyed to three principles: [1] Clearness, [2] Liveliness, and [3] Appropriateness, which help end-users to develop better judgment in language matters related to speaking and writing situations.

AUDIENCE: Native and non-native speakers of English, Grades 8-12, College, University, Teachers, Instructors, Public Speakers, Business People, Media, Writers, and General Adult.

EDUCATION FIT: Languages, English Language Arts, ESL, and Literacy Provincial [State] Programs of Study and Resources.
DVDs 1, 2, 3 and 5 teach patterns related to phonics, which might lead some people to assume that GE is a step-by-step introduction to English. Not so! Soon, GE delves into parts of speech, moods and tenses, sentence construction, and more.

Real life visuals are used in the first programs, but as the programs delve into subjects related to the spoken English, real life visuals are no longer employed. Only words, expressions, and subject lines and paragraphs appear on animated backgrounds during the instructions and explanations, which the Narrator voices over. The Host inter-cuts on-screen to introduce each segment, unit, and sub-unit, engaging effectively in a direct dialogue with the viewers and the narrator. Further use of real life visuals would have definitely distracted learners' attention. Each DVD can be played as one unit (beginning to end), or as separate units from an interface that is programmed on each DVD. The interface enables learners to study, and teachers to teach, at their own pace.
