“I believe the English-Speaking Union is making a very important contribution to global peace and understanding by helping across the world to communicate in a common language.
Quick and easy communication is vital in the resolution of conflict, and it also plays a prominent part in economic and social development.”
President, HRH The Prince Phillip
Duke of Edinburgh KG KT.

The English-Speaking Union is an independent, non-political, educational charity with members throughout the UK, the USA and the rest of the world. Its purpose is to promote international understanding and human achievement through the widening use of the English language throughout the world.

Central to the purpose of the English-Speaking Union today is the recognition that the English language offers people of different races and cultures a means of shared communication. English is spoken by over one billion people worldwide and has become the international language of business, travel and technology. The ESU supports a range of activities that enhance the effective use of the English language.
