What is Global Voices?

Global Voices is a Bonus Feature from author Tom Kenny. It’s available only online at

How does it sound? Global Voices is a collage of monologues that showcases the great varieties of world English. Hear British, Australian, and New Zealand accents mixed in with excellent non-native speakers from Asia, South America, Africa and Europe. Students can practice listening to the varieties of English pronunciation, pick up new vocabulary, and extend their inter-cultural awareness.

There are 12 Global Voices features, one for every topic from Nice Talking with You. Each contains:

  • a streamed audio file
  • an online activity to check comprehension, and
  • a wrap-up online survey for students to see how their opinions match opinions of other students their age
