We’re here to help

Throughout the closure, the entire Pearson Middle East office team is at your disposal to support you, your parents and your students with your distance learning plans.

Please contact us on enquiries.middleeast@pearson.com and let us know what more we can do.

To further support you, we have created this flipbook, which is a guide to best practices in distance learning, aimed at English language teachers but is also useful for all educators.
