Our Story.

Live English was founded 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 pivotal questions about the future of education: How can we help people gain communication mastery that meaningfully enhances their capabilities to compete on the global stage? 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 next-generation organization and a faster operating model to thrive in the digital era?

Every idea starts with a problem. For starters, 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 also knew that it would work even better if it were affordable, accessible, high-quality, relevant and sustainable.

About Us

With a rebellious mindset and audacious life goals, our founders set out 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 pioneering smart work anywhere philosophy and sophisticated technology make geographic boundaries and physical locations obsolete. We provide our diverse network of empowered teams with radical flexibility, unparalleled support and innovative digital workflows to collaborate, engage and inspire. Our rapid growth allows us to welcome talented people from all corners of the planet to join our thriving community.

Today, Live English’s digital-first, remote-first team collaborates across six continents and 23 time zones to provide ambitious individuals with a journey of professional transformation.
