All of our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses run throughout the year on a flexible basis. To discuss our courses and to find the right level for you, please email [email protected] or enrol online and a member of the team will be in touch.
These classes are lively and are a good opportunity to meet learners from other countries. You will have a chance to gain an Edexcel ESOL qualification at a level which is right for you. We run courses at three levels:
Beginners ESOL: This course is for those who do not speak any English and need to start from the beginning.
Elementary ESOL: This course is for those who can speak a little English but wish to improve their overall confidence.
Intermediate ESOL: This course is for those who already have a good knowledge of English.
This September we are hosting open events aimed at providing learners with the chance to come in and meet the ESOL team. Giving you the chance to ask any questions you may have and undertake an assessment so we can understand which level would best suit you.
