Dartmouth House is the home of the English-Speaking Union (ESU), a charity using English as a common global language to nurture dialogue and the exchange of ideas and opinions. Dartmouth House has traditionally been known as a centre of excellence in open dialogue and respect for all opinions and this continues in the 21st Century.

The ESU brings together and empowers people of different languages and cultures. For over 90 years, the ESU has provided scholarships, bursaries and exchange opportunities for English-speakers around the globe, as well as promoting the skills of public oratory and debating to school and university students worldwide. We raise funds for our education programmes through our members, alumni and corporate supporters.
