Partnership with the Financial Times

Wall Street English Malaysia Announces ForToday, a product which enhances professional English, in association with The Financial Times

Launch of ForToday

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – March 1st, 2014 - Wall Street English, the world’s premier provider of English language instruction for adults, is pleased to announce the launch of ForToday, a new product suite developed using content from the Financial Times, the world’s leading provider of global business news, comment, and analysis. This innovative product is now available at Wall Street English Malaysia for all new students.
 
ForToday is designed to help students practice their English as they progress through their standard Wall Street English coursework. ForToday will offer students language learning exercises developed from articles pulled from the Financial Times, with varying levels of difficulty. New articles and exercises based on global news events will be available to students each week through The Village, Wall Street English’s online student community.
 
In addition to the weekly language exercises, students can participate in new language classes that focus on the adapted articles from the Financial Times. The classes give students additional opportunities to work with Wall Street English’s highly qualified teachers as they develop their English language skills, and to work with other students on their new language in a small class setting.
 
ForToday also offers Wall Street English students in Malaysia free unlimited access to FT.com, which not only allows them to keep up with global business news, but also gives them the opportunity to practice reading current news articles in English on a daily basis.

Wall Street English was able to develop the new ForToday product because of a unique initiative launched by Pearson, the world’s leading learning company. Pearson’s new FT in Education initiative allows Pearson’s education businesses including Wall Street English to use over 100,000 Financial Times articles, special reports, and features that are highly relevant to students and professors. The adapted articles used in ForToday are pulled from this vast database.

The Financial Times is a highly respected news source throughout the world,” said David Kedwards, CEO, Wall Street English. “We are excited to be able to offer our students additional learning tools to further develop their language skills using such a well recognized and respected resource. Wall Street English’s ForToday offering is a perfect example of using world class journalism in a practical, educational environment to assist students with their English language education.
 
John Fallon, CEO of Pearson’s international education business, said: “FT in Education brings a richness to study in many areas. With Pearson’s approach to learning design, assessment programs and contact with teachers and students, we can turn the Financial Times world-class content into world-class learning.
 
The learning resources in ForToday are offered to all Wall Street English students at no additional cost.
