    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether Im right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence from an English text?

    My overriding focus is to get my students talking English, conversing in English, speaking English and understanding spoken English.

    overriding = first in priority; more important than all others

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Re: overriding

    Hello, I am not a teacher, but perhaps I can help you.
    For me it's all right, you have an adjective (overriding) before a noun (focus), and the meaning seem to be clear.
    Have a nice day.
