Wall Street Institute Showcases Unique English Language Instruction Method
with New Corporate Website
Innovative site also supports global ESL teacher recruitment

BALTIMORE, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Wall Street Institute, the world's
premier provider of English language instruction, today announced the launch
of its new corporate web site found at www.wallstreetinstitute.com.
    The site highlights Wall Street Institute's unique and proven instruction
method, which focuses on teaching how to speak and understand English instead
of the more traditional method of teaching grammar out of a textbook. Wall
Street Institute students learn how to communicate in English in everyday
conversations in both social and business settings.
    "The Wall Street Institute method is highly effective in that it enables
everyone to succeed in learning how to understand and speak English, whatever
their preferred learning style or previous experience of learning," said Simon
Buckland, Director of Curriculum Development at Wall Street Institute.
    The Wall Street Institute method significantly differentiates the company
from other operators in the $50 billion global English as a Second Language
market. Wall Street Institute was the first ESL training provider to subject
its methodology to rigorous standards testing. A landmark study, conducted
with the support of the renowned University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations,
demonstrated that Wall Street Institute's English language curriculum is
aligned to the globally recognized Common European Framework Reference for
Languages (CEFR) English Proficiency Scales.
    The new website is not only designed to educate prospective students and
corporations about the benefits of learning English at Wall Street Institute,
but is also an important element of the company's ongoing global teacher
recruitment efforts.
    "Wall Street Institute currently operates over 350 centers in 25 countries
around the world, and we are projecting strong growth in 2008. As a result,
Wall Street Institute is actively recruiting teachers from native English
speaking countries to teach our unique method. Prospective teachers can apply
for open positions in the region and country of their choice directly from the
new website," said Tim Daniels, CEO of Wall Street Institute.
    Visitors to the new site can also quickly link to a Wall Street Institute
country website for more local information, such as special offers and center
locations.
