Pearson and Livemocha receive Royal Honours

Pearson and Livemocha have been awarded the ESU (English Speaking Union) President’s Award 2009 for their recently launched Active English Course.

And for all of you who don’t know who the English Speaking Union’s President is: he is no other than Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The ESU President’s Award was inaugurated in 2003 at the request of the President of the ESU, HRH Duke of Edinburgh KG KT and is given annually. The judging panel includes experts from the fields of design, technology and English language teaching. The ESU President’s Award builds on the success of the widely respected Duke of Edinburgh English Language Book Award which recognises the book published in the previous year that has contributed most to the understanding of the English language.

The ceremonie will be on November 12 at Buckingham Palace. Hence, congratulations to you guys. Well done and much deserved, indeed!
