About Me: My name is Jason and started teaching English Out There in 2001 because I thought there was a better way to teach speaking skills. Languages Out There is a small innovative UK education company majority owned and run by me. A few dedicated teacher colleagues are also shareholders. The lessons were taught for about 250,000 hours to paying students in and on the streets of London before publication, and are now being taught all over the world. They include crowd and peer-sourced content curated from the real activity of thousands of learners, feedback from experienced teachers I employed and the input of five paid professional editors to finish them off. I don’t think there are many (if any) ESL materials quite like them. The result of all of that development and field testing is that they just work. They are designed to make teaching English speaking effective and a lot more enjoyable, for everyone involved.
