BBC Studios – We talked to Pearson and BBC Studios about

We talked to Pearson and BBC Studios about sustainability and how they are working together to provide English language learners with the skills and knowledge they need to change the world. His passion for teaching and obsession with sustainability led him to create Renewable English, an online English course that offers free courses and materials to raise awareness about climate change around the world. Whether you’re a student looking to expand your skills and knowledge to successfully discuss important environmental issues in English, or an educator looking to offer your students an international project on a topic that really interests them, there’s something for everyone. You’ll have the opportunity to join the conversation with Pearson English, BBC Studios, and teachers and students from around the world. Teachers and students have access to ready-to-use English resources on these topics and can participate in ongoing conversations through our digital channels.
