Our Founding

My Open Passport Online English Language School (MYOP) was founded by Marinella Yule after she realized that many online language schools were very rigid and didn’t make each lesson unique to match the student.

She looked back on her language learning experience for Spanish and French and decided that she wanted to pass on her love of languages to others just like her past teachers passed on to her.

So she founded My Open Passport Online English Language School in order to provide students unique lessons that fit their needs and goals.

Marinella picked My Open Passport as the name because she believes that languages help your world expand.

She believes that everyone should have this opportunity – for their world to be more open with their language passport.
