Open English, a leading online English learning platform in Latin America and the U.S Hispanic market, announced that the company has enrolled more than one million students to date while expanding into Europe and the Middle East. The Open English platform teaches English as a second language by connecting students with native English-speaking teachers through live classes 24 hours a day.
Open English has achieved significant revenue growth in both consumer and corporate segments and has extended its leadership position.
With more than 1.4 billion English learners around the world, according to HolonIQ, Open English’s platform aims to accelerate fluency by disrupting the traditional brick and mortar model that has historically dominated the space. Since its founding in 2007, Open English has become synonymous with English proficiency achieving 9 out of 10 brand awareness with consumers across Latin America.1
“In emerging markets, people see English as a stepping-stone to social mobility, and Open English is the platform helping them actually achieve fluency, and not just learn basic vocabulary like most casual apps,” said Andrés Moreno, founder, Chairman and CEO of Open English. “The pandemic accelerated the recognition that on-demand online learning can be a superior experience to the rigid schedules, crowded classrooms, and expensive tuition associated with traditional physical center providers.”
Open English provides live, online learning solutions for businesses, adults and children, as well as complementary digital skills training programs.
“At Open English we don’t use technology to do away with human interaction. Instead, we leverage technology to enable access to high-quality, affordable human instruction anytime, anywhere,” added Moreno.
