Removing barriers to language learning

Language learning has the power to change lives; it presents new opportunities and opens doors. We believe in making our products accessible to everyone.

Pearson and Talent Beyond Boundaries are making a difference in refugees' lives worldwide

Pearson and Talent Beyond Boundaries (TBB) are working together to help make a difference to the lives of refugees and displaced people all over the world.

We're empowering people to use their skills, experience and talents to build brighter futures for themselves. Helping to remove language barriers can give people a lifeline and a key to unlock new opportunities. To enable this, we're providing 300 free and 300 discounted English tests with our flagship Pearson Test of English (PTE).

The cost of a PTE test could prove a barrier when applying for a work visa, so we want to make the pathway as easy as possible for people during their time of crisis. We've provided TBB with these 600 tests to offer to the individuals they're working to support.

“It’s really heartbreaking to see what’s happening in Ukraine right now. I spent a month in Kyiv last year and got to know the people, the culture and their language. They’re such warm and welcoming people who deserve so much better than this. I’m proud to be able to offer Mondly’s language learning services for free to all Ukrainians in the light of the current situation.”
