ESOL Courses

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

ESOL courses are designed for anyone whose first language is not English and who wishes to learn how to speak English, progress to other courses, or to get a job. If you're looking for English courses for beginners, we'll interview you to find out which class is best for you.

Our supportive teachers will help build your confidence and develop the skills you need to live and work in the UK. On our Skills for Life courses, you'll have termly exams to help you to progress quickly and gain nationally recognised qualifications.
