ESU is an independent, non-political, educational charity.
Our purpose is to create a global understanding
through English at a time when English is positioned as the
increasingly shared language of an interdependent world. For
millions it is the key to personal achievement in the arts,
business, politics and technology. The language has never been
more needed, its uses more varied, its contribution to international
co-operation more vital.
Our vision is to provide people with communication skills, confidence
and networking opportunities. We endeavour to see that the value
of good communication as an essential attribute for individual,
community and global development and understanding is publicly
recognised and widely integrated into education and social policy.
For this purpose ESU brings together and empowers people of
different languages and cultures. By building skills and confidence
in communication, we give people the opportunity to realise
their potential. Worldwide, the members and alumni of the ESU
support these objectives.
