Our ESOL classes are for you if English is not your first language.

If you are settling or living in the UK we have courses for learners of all abilities. These courses will help you to read, write, speak and understand English to help you in everyday life; for example to help your children, communicate with others or to improve your skills for work. If you want to improve your English to get a job we can help you. Our ESOL courses look at topics related to living and working in Britain.

Course Content

You will work on improving your speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, spelling and punctuation skills for everyday use in life and work. You will work on improving your writing skills so that by the end of the course you are able to write a variety of everyday texts for different purposes, accurately and fluently.

On this course you will learn how to:

• Fill in forms for personal and professional purposes e.g. to join a Doctor’s surgery or apply for a job
