A Welcome from the Denver Branch President

Welcome to the home page of the Denver Branch of the English-Speaking Union!  Maybe you are here for the first time, visiting a web address given to you by a friend or colleague or following a link from another website.  Perhaps you are a member, returning to see what we have done in the recent past and what we are planning for the future.  Whatever brought you here, I am glad you arrived!

The English-Speaking Union is a non-profit, non-political educational organization whose mission is to celebrate English as a shared language to foster global understanding and goodwill.  We sponsor competitions and scholarships for students and educators; and we offer lectures, cultural programs, social events and travel opportunities for our members. The Denver Branch is one of 68 located throughout the United States and is part of a network of ESUs in over 50 countries around the world. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about who we are and what we do.
