Introducing Pearson MePro - A Feedback Based English Language Skills Improvement Program

In this blog post, I cover Pearson MePro, a feedback based English language skills improvement program which aims to help students and working professionals gain proficiency for employability and career enhancement.


It's always a pleasure to write about Pearson, the world's learning company which caters to over 100 million learners around the world. The digital learning company is constantly coming up with new and innovative programs to transform English language learning for students and professionals alike.

Just last week, Pearson India announced the launch of its adaptive English language improvement program called Pearson MePro, to help countless learners in our country enhance their English language proficiency.



To see what the buzz was all about, I, along with other bloggers and influencers, had visited their state-of-the-art facility in Gurugram for a quick demo of Pearson MePro.

Let's try to understand the need for such a program in the first place.

Due to rapid globalization and ever-changing industry dynamics, the importance of the English language cannot be undermined anymore.

As the demand for a workforce proficient in English has increased manifold over the last few years, English has taken the center stage as the business language of choice, making it imperative for professionals to be adept in all facets of communication.

Being a skill-based course, Pearson MePro is supported by a range of content tailored to each learner's need to simplify their learning process, enable them to find their voice in English, and help master the essential language skills to be future-ready.

Personalized content and industry-specific learning outcomes

Based on the Global Scale of English (GSE), the new-age comprehensive English Language Training (ELT) program provides content and assessment for learning and development of English language skills, including Speaking, Listening, Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, and Grammar.

The online program further helps in developing accuracy and communication ability, essential for studying abroad, and more importantly, getting the desired career growth through better employment opportunities.

Aligned with the company's vision to strengthen lifelong learning and career progression, Pearson MePro offers personalized content and industry-specific learning outcomes measured against Global Scale of English (GSE) and Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) levels.

Self-paced, completely online learning program

What I like the most about this program is that it is a self-paced, online learning program that engages the learner with world-class content. No manual intervention is required whatsoever.

To introduce some elements of interactivity, the program uses role-plays, simulations, virtual reality scenarios, and live sessions which are both academic as well as work-related.

To encourage practical learning, a first-of-its-kind adaptive English learning module adapts to each learner's level of proficiency and provides a learner-centric, professional and academic theme-based courseware that helps them become language proficient.

Designed in a structured manner, the skill-based courseware provides periodic assessments and allows learners to begin their language mastering journey by taking a 35-minute diagnostic test which maps their current language proficiency level and start the course to master the global language of employability.

Becoming future-ready

Built on relevant learning outcomes on the Global Scale of English (GSE) framework, Pearson MePro evaluates learners on a GSE scale to demonstrate progress and provide a certificate and recognized digital badge to help them connect with real-world jobs.



Based on research involving over 6000 teachers from more than 50 countries, GSE extends the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and uses granular approach to rate learners on a scale of 10 to 90 within a CEFR level.

Pearson MePro

It is the first truly global English language standard that allows teachers to more accurately and easily measure learner progress across the four skills - Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing.

    1. Actually, since it is a computer based program, the student only interacts with a machine, not a teacher per se.
