Who are we?

The company

In early 1998 a small group of TESOL educationalists, designers and programmers agreed to work together in their spare time on developing English-To-Go. They spent nearly a year developing the teaching methodology and launched the first instant English lesson in 1998. Aptly enough, this free English lesson was called "Lift Off" and was about John Glenn's return to space.

Our first online English lesson was released on Selfaccess.net in September 2001 for free and we looked at the smoking debate.

We have also developed a third site called InstantWorkbook.com. This site contains interactive learning tools for English language that are linked to Instant Lessons and other English-To-Go resources. These quizzes, games, listening exercises, reading comprehension exercises and English grammar exercises complement our materials from the www.english-to-go.com website.

Our websites and their content are created by an international team of qualified and experienced TESOL teachers, ESL trainers, facilitators, linguists, technicians and educational experts. The lessons are used in more than 100 countries.
