About Rio Press
Rio Press was founded in 2016 and is based in Colchester in the United Kingdom.
English is spoken as a first language by around 400 million people worldwide, and by an estimated 600 million people as a second language.
Over the past century, English has become firmly established as the ‘lingua franca’ – the common language used for communications between speakers whose native languages are different.
On the Internet, well over half of all published content is in English – that is 10 times more than the closest other language.
When it comes to communication between people and gaining access to the world’s knowledge – English truly is the ‘Universal Translator’.
At Rio Press, we believe that being able to communicate in English is the single most important work and life skill that any person can have.
This is especially true in the modern work place.
Our goal is to help the world learn Vocational English – the language of the work place.
We provide English language learners worldwide with the highest quality Vocational English learning materials, so that they can successfully develop their careers in rewarding and productive occupations.
We focus on the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America and to date we have established a distribution and sales network in over 40 countries.
