At National Geographic Learning, we believe in the power of curiosity to fuel the desire to learn, which is why we use incredible photography and video to inspire that curiosity in the English language learning classroom.

Learning to speak English as a foreign language has become an essential part of a 21st century education. Over 2 billion people are learning English around the world, and they will use it as both a professional tool and a way to connect with other people. In this century, global awareness is also a requirement, and we believe you can’t understand the world if you don’t experience it.
