The English-Speaking Union of the United States is a non-profit, non-political educational organization founded in 1920, two years after an English-Speaking Union was launched in England.
Its mission initially was "to draw together in the bonds of comradeship the English-speaking peoples of the world."
The world has changed dramatically since then, but as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh wrote recently, the English-Speaking Union has managed to adapt to these changes so that the ESU has made "the transition from a union of friendship among speakers of English into a dynamic body devoted to the promotion of the use of English as a medium of international communication."
