Through pair work and a wide range of interactive exercises, learners come into contact and engage with “World Englishes.”


The focus is on conversation, with practice in reading, listening and discussion.


This text not only introduces English used by people from other countries, but nurtures pro-active “international communication strategies.”


Topics are familiar to Japanese students and feature expressions for day-to-day communication.


Recordings are made by native English speakers as well as “non-natives” from Asia and Europe, who give Japanese a vivid look at English as a lingua franca.
