Current Time in Calgary, Canada:
GE is great for "PLAY, STOP, & LEARN or TEACH" activity. It's an excellent LIBRARY CHECK OUT ITEM. Aside from being a practical self-teaching tool, or a suitable supplement to existing instructional video material, GE is also ideal for comprehensive academic grammar collections. All explanations in GE have been keyed to three governing principles: [1] CLEARNESS , [2] LIVELINESS, and [3] APPROPRIATENESS. These principles help learners and speakers of English develop better judgment in language matters related to speaking and writing situations. And so, they gain competence in English, which they need to be successful in the every day life, in business and their social relations.

The grammar of spoken English is VERY important, because good grammar enables us to clearly express our meaning. Still, if we are asked to talk bout grammar, most of us feel rather fearful, because we either did not learn grammar in school, or we simply forgot the grammar rules we've learned.

INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH: GE is different from the classroom traditional teaching methods. To make learning more efficient, we did not include specific theme entries. Nor was GE shot in classroom environment, because that would have undeniably distracted the learners' attention. Throughout the program, we describe in brief rules subject entries that are integrated with parts of the grammar of spoken English. When we've set out brief rules, we did not mean to explain each individual grammatical term. We draw on general terms that are used in grammars of other languages, as well as in English. We looked at what we use the parts of speech for, when do we use them, and why. Our concept will make it easier for learners to get a better insight into the structure of the English language, which is very simple in essence.

ENGLISH - THE LANGUAGE OF GLOBAL COMMUNICATION: English has become, effectively, the new Babylonian language, the language of global communication. There are countries in which English is spoken as a second language, ESL. There are countries in which English has no, or little special linguistic place or presence. There are countries in which English is the native language. Internationally, however, English has not only won its place as the language of global communication - indispensable for business, science, art, culture and learning, but it has also become Lingua Franca, the comon language various nations use to communicate among themselves. Global English IS reality.
