About Peter Travis
was formed in 2000 by Fiona Joseph and Peter Travis, two former English
lecturers and textbook writers who, as teachers, had been frustrated by the lack of flexible yet authoritative online self-study resources for Cambridge exam candidates. We started from the belief that learning outside the classroom is just as important for exam success as learning in the classroom. Now in our seventh year, our award-winning online resources are used by individuals, and in schools, libraries, learning centres and training
departments all over the world.
