GlobalEnglish Partners With Mexican Nonprofit Youth Program to Develop Critical English Communication Skills

INROADS Mexico to Use the GlobalEnglish Service to Help Gifted Interns Master Business English Communication Skills and Further International Career Opportunities

BRISBANE, CA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - GlobalEnglish Corporation (www.GlobalEnglish.com), the leading provider of on-demand assessment, learning and support for business English communication, today announced their donation of software licenses to the Mexico division of INROADS. The GlobalEnglish service provides INROADS Mexico additional resources to further the success of interns who show promise in international business careers.

INROADS Mexico is a nonprofit organization dedicated to training and developing talented, socio-economically challenged students who are interested in pursuing careers in global business. Qualified students receive professional internship opportunities in leading international organizations such as Colgate Palmolive, Deloitte, Grupo Modelo, Lexmark, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Santander Bank.

The GlobalEnglish online service focuses on developing English communication skills that are critical to succeed in business. Interns in the INROADS Mexico program learn skills that can be applied immediately on the job. With 24/7 access to the GlobalEnglish service including assessment, activities focused on improving all English skills, and mobile downloads for MP3 players, GlobalEnglish offers flexibility and personalization for each individual.

"Many of our interns come from communities where there is little exposure to English," said Javier Delgado of INROADS Mexico. "In global corporations that sponsor INROADS programs, language is an increasingly bigger obstacle for our interns to overcome. We are grateful to now have GlobalEnglish's online service to develop strong business English skills as a part of our program offerings. Better English skills equal improved career and life opportunities for our country's promising youth."

INROADS Mexico works with gifted Mexican students who have fewer chances to break into international business careers. Qualified students are placed in year-round internships and offered additional skill development resources. The Mexico City program has grown from sponsoring 12 students to managing over 100 placed interns.

"GlobalEnglish helps Global 2000 companies, and now INROADS interns, communicate effectively through the common language of global business -- English," said Deepak Desai, President and CEO of GlobalEnglish. "INROADS Mexico offers an ideal opportunity for us to further serve the Global 2000 through early development of business English skills among the best and brightest minds entering the workforce. We are delighted that the GlobalEnglish service can assist these exceptional students to reach their full potential in the world of global business."
