We help people learn English and prove their skills to the world
Be inspired and see how people master their stories with English communication skills and an international qualification to prove their level.
It’s about living the life you want. It’s about learning, growing, developing and becoming something greater. It’s about your achievement, your dreams.
Basic Interpersonal Communicative Skills
This is particularly relevant
to developing countries, which regard English as the key to higher value, knowledge-based economic activities which
can accelerate progress up the value chain.
With the acceleration of globalisation and the integration of the world economy, English is increasingly viewed a means of achieving competitive economic advantage.
English has also become a key strand in the debate on what makes good human capital and what skills are needed by labour in order to produce economic value. English skills can attract mobile flows of capital and inward investment from multinational firms. English is also often cited as part of the ‘21st century skill set’, and a ‘must have’ for participation in the global knowledge economy.
