Our Story.

Live English came into being in 2012, on the belief that through lifelong learning, ambitious professionals have the power to transform their lives, their careers, their organizations, and ultimately—the world for the better.

It has become abundantly clear that globalization has led to profound changes in all aspects of our lives. Due to the intense acceleration of this phenomenon and the parade of rapid technological progress, we asked ourselves a few questions about the future of education: How can we help people gain communication mastery that meaningfully enhances their capabilities to compete in the global arena? How can we erase the industry’s traditional boundaries and orchestrate a robust ecosystem? And how can we craft a forward-looking concept and design a truly fluid organization to thrive in the digital era and beyond?

Every idea starts with problems. In a nutshell, the cost of language programs are unreasonably high for most consumers. From past experiences, we’re convinced the one-to-one model works. However, we believe it would work even better if it were affordable, accessible, high-quality, relevant and sustainable.

About Us

With a bold mindset and audacious life goals—our founders embarked on a mission to ambitiously reimagine the education space by creating the first learning platform carefully designed for the evolving needs and demands of modern professionals and organizations.

Enabled by our work-smart-anywhere framework and sophisticated technology makes geographic boundaries and physical locations increasingly irrelevant. We provide our diverse network of empowered teams with radical flexibility, unparalleled support and a seamless digital experience to collaborate, engage and inspire. Our rapid growth allows us to welcome talented people from all corners of the globe to join our flourishing community.
