Personalized instruction

Based on learners' daily performance, language-learning needs, and proficiency levels, we can adapt each lesson in terms of content, difficulty, and complexity. This ensures that learners receive high-quality, personalized instruction every time they log into their courses. Teachers get granular data on student performance so that they can use this information when planning their own classes.

Packed with authentic content

We deliver real English content that is updated daily and relevant to our learners' needs. Learners study in context with videos of people accomplishing daily tasks, audio recordings of real-life situations, karaoke-style music lessons, and up-to-date news stories from the Associated Press, Bloomberg, and The Financial Times.

Seamless blended learning

Our courses include fully integrated live instruction helping learners every step of the way. Learners can take one-on-one tutoring sessions or dynamic group classes with certified teachers who know how to teach English at a distance. Our students and teachers meet virtually for personalized sessions so learners can get just-in-time feedback where and when they need it the most.

Ideal for every learner

There is no typical language learner. Each learner has unique skills, interests, and goals, such as getting a promotion or working with English-speaking clients. Our patent-pending technology leverages our massive content library to design a course that is tailored specifically for each learner — no two courses are exactly alike.


Thematic Units

Whether your goal is use English in Business, prepare for Standardized Tests, Travel or any other activity you will find the appropriate units for your language learning needs. Pearson Online English lets you activate three units at once, and complete as many units as you want during the semester. At the end of each unit, you can take an achievement test to demonstrate comprehension of what you have learned.


Lessons with Activities

Each unit consists of 18 lessons, which are based on a specific piece of content (an article from the Associated Press, a video interview with a Fortune 500 CEO, an image of a bank with keywords to accomplish a real-world task, etc.). Each lesson consists of three interactive activities designed to reinforce what has been learned and highlight areas that need improvement. As they complete lessons, learners build a word bank that is available for them to practice whenever they need it, as well as an in-depth grammar guide with real-world examples.

Trained English Teachers

We offer live one-on-one sessions and daily group classes with certified tutors via video conferencing service. Learners can specify the lessons they want, like solving grammar problems in their speech or writing, preparing for interviews, or using English in the workplace. Teachers can also prepare dynamic lessons based on their students' performance in the product and give just-in-time feedback where they need it most. Learners who use tutoring with self-study program are 2x more engaged and score 15% higher on proficiency exams.


Measured Results

Our dynamic analytics and progress reports give learners the ability to track their daily performance and focus on the skills they need to improve. Our group reporting dashboards provide both summary and granular data, giving teachers, administrators, and managers the insight they need to understand their learners' performance and engagement with their course. Then, every three months, learners take the Pearson Proficiency Assessment (PPA) to measure how much they have improved. Learners are then placed into one of 15 levels spread across seven categories.
