ESU Mission

Founded in 1920, the English-Speaking Union of the United States is a national membership organization with more than 4,000 members organized in 65 Branches across the country. ESU members and volunteers are the pillars of our educational and cultural programs as they work in their local communities to carry the ESU mission forward.

For 100 years, the ESU educational and cultural programs have enriched the lives of American students, teachers, English language learners and ESU members. The English-Speaking Union employs English as a shared language to foster global understanding and goodwill by providing educational and cultural programs for students, educators, English language learners, new immigrants and members

Chairman's Letter

In the summer of 2019 when all of us were looking forward to the English-Speaking Union’s centennial year ahead, the world could not have looked more different than today. The global pandemic that gripped mankind just a few months later threw a wrench into our plans for a year of celebrations to commemorate the founding of the English-Speaking Union in 1920. And since the ESU’s mission is grounded in human interaction, in people meeting each other face to face and across borders, the future of our educational and cultural-exchange programs – from Branch social activities, to English in Action conversations, to the National Shakespeare Competition, to the learn-abroad scholarships – was uncertain.

And yet, the challenges of the pandemic inspired an unprecedented number of programmatic innovations and initiatives that turned 2019-2020 into a landmark year, a truly centennial year.

I’m delighted, and proud, to present you with this annual report. It is dedicated to all of you – Branches, members, volunteers, teachers, students and staff – who overcame all adversity and made this year so memorable. This annual report shows the impact of your hard work and generosity. Enjoy reading about how the ESU advanced its mission in the turbulent 2019-2020 and please renew your memberships, and if you are not a member yet, join the English-Speaking Union. Attend our events, volunteer, donate to our programs and be part of a fellowship that carries the ESU’s noble mission forward.

Dr. Paul Beresford-Hill CBE

Chairman, The English-Speaking Union of the United States

Annual Conference

The 2019 English-Speaking Union Annual Conference, hosted by the ESU Washington, D.C. Branch, brought members from all over the country to the Nation’s Capital for a weekend of camaraderie and planning for the ESU’s next 100 years. The Cosmos Club, venue for most of the November 1-3 weekend, provided accommodating environs for the sessions and meals. This year’s conference focused on renewed Branch involvement and a new branding initiative in conjunction with planning for the 2020 Centennial celebrations.

Business sessions included a meeting of the National Board of Directors as well as plenary sessions on the Centennial celebrations and an update on the re-branding of the organization undertaken in the spring of 2019. Multiple Branch-led breakout sessions on topics including communication, the National Shakespeare Competition, and fundraising followed the official 2019 English-Speaking Union Annual General Meeting on Sunday, November 3, 2019. Over the course of the weekend, key speakers included: Martyn Tipping, from award-winning marketing and graphic design agency Odgis + Co.; Dr. Natwar Gandhi, former Chief Financial Officer of the District of Columbia; Tess Peters, originally from Oyo State, Nigeria, a life-long learner and business woman with an enthusiasm for education; Colin Davies, retired international education consultant as well as actor and disk jockey; and Allen Packwood, Director of the Churchill Archives Centre.

The conference weekend offered a series of wonderful social events that brought our members closer together and reinforced the ESU’s goal to foster relationships and inspire common bonds – person to person. Attendees were treated to a number of tours, an opening reception at the Cosmos Club hosted by Chairman Amb. Paul Beresford-Hill and President Dr. E. Quinn Peeper, and high tea at the DACOR Bacon House.

Middle School Debate

In partnership with Claremont McKenna College and launched with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the ESU Middle School Debate Program teaches students in grades 5-8 the fundamentals of argumentation while developing their abstract reasoning and language arts skills through public speaking. It is an adaptation of the parliamentary model of debate for middle school children that is specifically leveled for their development. This enriching experience in civil discourse runs during the academic year and engages nearly 2,300 students in weekly debate activities and Saturday tournaments hosted by participating schools. Serving the New York and New Jersey metropolitan areas, the program is unique in that it maximizes the learning and skill-building outcomes through teacher debate-coach and judge training. In 2019-2020, the program organized 18 day-long tournaments and more than 500 volunteers and judges were trained.

English in Action

English in Action (EIA) helps newcomers to the United States to master conversational English and learn about life in the U.S. In addition to giving students the gift of fluency in English, the program fosters cross-cultural exchange by pairing English language learners with volunteer tutors—native English speakers—for one-to-one conversation sessions. A hallmark of the program is its comprehensive tutor training using best practices in cross-cultural learning and leadership development. The tutor training emphasizes work with culturally-diverse populations. 

English in Action adapted to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and continued to provide participants with opportunities to practice English. Tutors and students continued their conversations remotely from the safety of their homes. Weekly emails provided invaluable resources and tips on tutoring remotely. Two weekly group discussions on timely and relevant topics were added to provide additional opportunities to practice English. We continued to provide support to tutors through remote trainings, workshops, and monthly support groups. A sense of community was created as participants met others from across the program thanks to the online format.

Andrew Romay New
Immigrant Center (ARNIC)

The Andrew Romay New Immigrant Center equips recent immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers in the New York metropolitan area with the skills, resources and support they need to integrate fully into American society. This need-based, year-long scholarship program offers English language classes, one-to-one conversation sessions with native English speakers as well as opportunities for professional development and community integration. 

The global health pandemic created both challenges and opportunities. We found new and innovative ways to support and empower ARNIC members. We continued to offer a full range of programs using remote platforms. Some of the highlights from this year included our first virtual Thanksgiving celebration, a panel discussion, Alumni Voices: Stories of Success, and Know Your Rights workshops. We introduced additional weekly group conversation sessions to improve spoken English and mini-intensive classes focusing on new topics, such as the language of food and poetry and art. Throughout the year, we continued to strengthen our community partnerships and grow the ARNIC program.  

I will never forget the first day l went into ARNIC and l felt like a stranger. On my last day, I left feeling like l was leaving my home. You all made the difference. Thank you.

National Shakespeare Competition

The ESU National Shakespeare Competition is a performance-based education program supported by ESU Branches across the country. High school students nationwide read, analyze, perform and recite Shakespearean monologues and sonnets in three qualifying stages: school, ESU Branch and national. In the process, they develop analytical and communication skills, build confidence, and learn to appreciate the power of the spoken word. Since 1983 more than 380,000 students have brought the timeless works of Shakespeare to life.

The 2020 National Shakespeare Competition

Despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, the ESU successfully held its 37th National Shakespeare Competition. Embodying the premise that the “show must go on,” the ESU celebrated its 100th anniversary by employing available technology to produce a digital competition.

Virtual finals were organized using texting, online meetings and YouTube.  The 50 finalists were asked to upload a video of their performance. Distinguished judges, located remotely, reviewed the submissions and selected the winner and two runners-up. 

  • Ava Blum won the first prize. A student at Georgetown Day School, Ava ably represented the ESU Washington, D.C. Branch. Ava performed as Julia from Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona and recited “Sonnet 116” in the final round of the competition.
  • Ava’s teacher, James Mahady, received the inaugural Teacher Recognition Award of $1000.
  • Runner-up Adam Wilson, from St. Anne’s-Belfield School, proudly represented the ESU Charlottesville Branch.  
  • Jordyn Jenkins, from the Youth Performing Arts School and the ESU Kentucky Branch placed third in the competition.

Teachers Learning Abroad (TLab)

Each summer, through the generosity and dedication of ESU Branches, numerous scholarships are awarded to teachers nationwide. The ESU Teachers Learning Abroad (TLab) Scholarship Program provides middle and high school teachers scholarships to continue their education at prestigious centers of higher learning in the United Kingdom for 2 - 6 weeks.  

The ESU continued to work closely with Oxford, Edinburgh, and the Globe throughout the pandemic to strengthen our partnerships and to ensure the educators who were awarded TLab 2020 scholarships, and not able to attend due to Covid, are able to utilize them in the summer of 2021 or 2022. We explored other digital options to keep the program fresh by providing new opportunities for professional development, such as The Globe’s Anti-Racist Shakespeare Workshop in December 2020. In the future, the ESU is committed to introducing and continuing to provide more remote offerings throughout the year to promote the TLab program and engage educators.

Travel and Learn Abroad (TLab for Lifelong Learners)

The TLab for Lifelong Learners Program opens up to ESU Branch members the international, educational, and cultural opportunities previously only available to our middle and high school teachers. These popular, one-week ESU programs in the United Kingdom provide the opportunity to live and learn with like-minded souls. Lectures by renowned scholars, behind-the scenes tours, access to archives not open to the public, and the company of intellectually-curious, worldly, and adventurous fellow travelers power the meaningful enrichment and insider perspectives offered by the ESU Travel and Learn Abroad for Lifelong Learners program. Past trips have included Dicken’s London and Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon.

Secondary School Exchange Scholarship (SSE)

The ESU Secondary School Exchange Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship that provides tuition, room, and board for US and UK students to spend a semester or year (gap year) abroad between high school and college. Since its inception in 1928, the SSE Scholarship program has allowed thousands of students to expand their horizons academically and culturally by studying at secondary schools in the US and UK. The oldest of all our educational programs, the SSE is at the heart of the ESU mission to use the English language to foster global understanding and good will through cultural and educational exchanges. Through this experience, students gain maturity, independence, and global perspectives that benefit them in college and in their future careers.

The experience I had at Giggleswick School was an amazing one where I met some of my closest friends and learned a lot about different cultures during my travels. At Gigg, I was immediately accepted into their family and they really made it feel like home. When I had to come home early due to the global pandemic I was heartbroken about missing the rest of the year. At home I would not stop talking about my experiences abroad, and it inspired my younger brother to apply for the upcoming year.

Luard Morse Scholarships

The ESU Luard Morse Scholarship is a merit-based scholarship that provides up to $25,000 towards a semester of study at a British university. The scholarship is available only to American students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities and universities in the United States. The ESU Luard Morse Scholarship is open to students in all disciplines and has been awarded to students majoring in economics, philosophy, finance, mathematics, and liberal arts and the sciences. Since the inaugural 1969-1970 academic year, 85 exceptional students have been awarded this distinction through a rigorous and competitive selection process. A recent Luard Morse scholar, McKenzie Clarke is an English Major at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. She is looking forward to studying at Goldsmiths, University of London, in the fall of 2021.

Despite my time at King’s College London being cut short due to Covid, it was truly one of the greatest and most influential times of my life . . . I was even lucky enough to visit Oxford University on multiple occasions when visiting my other ESU Luard Morse Scholar, Janelle Green.
