General English courses

Adult learners with busy lives can struggle to move forward. At Pearson, our mission is to provide practical tools and motivating content to help people make progress and achieve results they can measure and celebrate. 

Speakout 2nd Edition

With its authentic material from the BBC, Speakout exposes students to language as it is really used, giving them confidence to communicate. 

Each unit ends with a lesson based around an extract from a BBC programme, while street interviews also give students access to authentic English.


American Speakout

American Speakout follows a balanced approach to topics, language development and skills work. Speaking activities are prominent, but not at the expense of the other core skills of reading, writing and listening, which are developed systematically throughout.
