A (UK?) glider approach has a diagonal towards the end of the downwind and onto a base followed by a turn onto final and a straight approach. If you imagine being somewhat lazy, the turns will be less pronounced and the straight bits rather curved until everything's merged into a single turn from the end of the downwind onto the runway threshold. I believe the RAF teach the curved approach method ab initio.
