Two billion English students worldwide

Jay Walker is a successful American entrepreneur and in the below video, he gives a thought-provoking lecture on the English mania overtaking the world. The photos of thousands of Chinese students rehearsing their sentences are amazing.

The really compelling message of Mr. Walker's speech is that English has become the world's second language. As he says in his video:

"English is the world's second language. Your native language is your life. But with English, you become part of a wider conversation. A global conversation about global problems...Like the harnessing of electricity in our cities, or the fall of the Berlin Wall, English represents hope for a better future."
This idea is behind everything we do on
