CEOLS /si:ɒlz/ was created in 2005 by a young couple, Serena and Blake Walkers, who were going to Turkey to teach English to youngsters. They wanted to know the basics before they arrived, so they decided to search the Internet and find the survival language they needed to understand and make themselves understood the minute they set foot on what was going to be their new home for the next three years.

The enormous amount of information and courses they found online, together with the online record of activities they were producing, sparked the idea of starting their own website to help their learners.The school began as a free online resource. However, it was soon spotted by entrepreneur James Pengelly who saw the potential in the young couple and offered to fund a European Online Language School. Pengelly got in touch with the young couple, making them an offer they couldn’t resist which brought them back to the UK immediately after they finished their obligations in Turkey.

Culture Counts

There are many online language schools. We will be visiting some of them to increase our knowledge of the English speaking world and culture.

Perhaps the most famous of them all is BBC Learning English. It is brought to us from the United Kingdom and, therefore, of course, deals with British English.

However, there are many different English accents; at Poetry Out Loud, you can listen to, as well as get to know, Canadian accents and at the same time practise your pronunciation through poetry.
