“The ESOL [English for speakers of other languages] course is great for me as it has helped me to improve my reading and writing skills as well as my vocabulary. The teachers are friendly and really look after you – they’re so lovely! I’m much more confident and sociable now and have the belief in myself to go on to my Science GCSEs and A Levels before eventually attending university, where I hope to one day study business management.”
