English Speaking Union

The English-Speaking Union (ESU) is an international educational charity that promotes “international understanding and friendship through the use of the English language.”

It was founded at the end of the First World War by Sir Evelyn Wrench with the aim of promoting closer ties between the English-speaking peoples. One of its first Chairmen was Sir Winston Churchill.
