English Speaking Union

The English-Speaking Union is a global educational charity and membership organisation that believes in the power of spoken communication. Through our educational programmes, competitions, cultural exchanges and advocacy we provide people with the skills to realise their full potential, helping them become confident communicators, critical thinkers and empowered citizens. We believe that good communication and oracy skills are essential to individual, community and cross-cultural development and understanding, and endeavour to ensure it is recognised as such.
