English Out There is the world’s first English course specially designed to work with social media and free internet telephony. In 2011, the European Commission funded website elearningeuropa.info named it one of the top ten uses of social media for formal language learning in the EU after listening to a case study in which a Chinese adult learner went from a beginner to intermediate speaker in just six lessons.

English Out There has created both student and teacher printed books for classroom use. Language teaching and learning materials that involve focused real speaking and listening practice in every lesson. 
250,000 hours of teaching and testing has created a unique global English course offering that can be used in any ELT environment and combines psycholinguistics with tasks with social learning.
