Wall Street English

Wall Street English (formerly Wall Street Institute) is an international English language learning academy for children and adults around the world. Wall Street English was established in 1972 in Italy by Italian Luigi Tiziano Peccenini. The company has over 3 million alumni with a current enrolment of 180,000 students. Using a franchise model, they currently operate over 450 centers in 28 countries in North Africa, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. Its international offices are in Hong Kong and in Barcelona, Spain.

In 2013, Wall Street Institute launched a company-wide rebranding, changing its name and identity. The company now operates as Wall Street English.

The Wall Street English program is designed for all levels of learners. They have 20 different levels of English language courses ranging from beginner to advanced. Their program includes an English-only environment in their centers, native English-speaking teachers, social activities that allow students to practice English in a social, non-threatening environment, and a global online student community.

The Wall Street English Blended Learning Method, created by Luigi Tiziano Peccenini and Luciano Biondo, combines different education methods of acquiring a language into one study cycle. The Blended Learning Method includes self-study, small teacher-led classes, and practice time. Students listen, read, write, speak, and practice English to gain a deep understanding of the language.

Wall Street English has been teaching English since 1972. Their curriculum is aligned with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), according to a study undertaken with the support of the University of Cambridge English for Speakers of Other Languages Examination group (ESOL).
