Our story

We are Pearson English, part of the world's largest education company, Pearson plc, with 30,000 employees in more than 70 countries.

Whether you’re a learner seeking swift progress towards new horizons, a teacher who’s inspiring achievement in the classroom or an institution looking for measurable improvement, the world of language learning is evolving.

We’re working together with the educational community to address challenges and further positive change.

  • We’re undertaking research into how digital tools are used in classrooms around the world.
  • We’re developing assessment tools with leading experts in the field.
  • We’re building apps that enable students to access great content anytime, anywhere.
  • Together with BBC Worldwide, we’re bringing real-life context to learning for students of all ages.
  • 60,000 educators are using the Global Scale of English to plan for progress.

There’s a lot going on.

As we talk to our teams, authors, partners and teachers, we find that we all agree: the best part of working in education is seeing learners make progress in their lives.

That’s our inspiration, and the inspiration behind the products and services, resources and ideas that you’ll find on this website.

Let's make a difference, together.
