About Pearson English

What we’re here to do

English is our global language – it belongs to the world. It’s our belief that only by sharing a common language can cultures come together and learn from one another. In a world where the barriers of time and distance are constantly shrinking, overcoming the language barrier creates endless possibilities.

So our aim is simple, but powerful: we want to help the world understand each other better, by better understanding the needs of each learner.
