Overview | Location

What is The English-Speaking Union (ESU). The ESU is an independent and non-political education body with members throughout the World. Its purpose is to promote international understanding and human achievement through the widening use of English as the language of our global village. ESU is growing rapidly in non-English-Speaking countries where there is recognition of the importance of a knowledge of English in today's world

The ESU, an educational Charity working for youth since 1918, is a membership organization with branches in over fifty countries worldwide. It has a long tradition of playing an important part in fostering cultural links and educational exchanges between peoples of different nationalities.

Its aims are:

  • Sponsor International and National Public Speaking and Debating to encourage worldwide communication and dialogue
  • Encourage the enjoyment and constructive use of English through educational programs
  • Provide a forum for international friendship through our support of the world-wide network of the ESU
  • Focus on key current affairs issues through regular internationalconferences, seminars and meetings
  • Work in close and innovative partnership with corporate members and sponsors
  • Sponsor scholarships and exchanges providing the opportunity for school leavers, undergraduates, and young professional people to study both in Canada and abroad

Dartmouth House in London, England, is the international headquarters of the ESU. It provides excellent facilities for the use of all members worldwide while local branches throughout the world organize and run Public Speaking and Debating Competitions, as well as other youth-focused education programs, entertain visiting students, and enjoy an active program of social events.

The Tweedsmuir Lecture, as an example, will welcome the opportunity for the UK High Commissioner, Mr. Anthony Cary, to speak about the responsibilities of an Ambassador abroad. Another example is our Shakespeare on Platform (SHOP) where local high school drama students are judged on their ability to express and portray Shakespearean works.
