Our ESOL classes cover reading, writing, listening and speaking as well as the vocabulary, grammar and functional language needed for everyday life in the UK. With superb facilities and a friendly environment, you will have an opportunity to develop your English for a variety of purposes including employment, further study, communicating with friends and family and developing knowledge and skills for life. PLEASE NOTE: We have received a large increase in enquiries and many courses are now full. Please accept our apologies for any delay in replying. We are trying to meet the increased demand.
Whatever your starting level or knowledge, we have a course for you. First, you will need to take an assessment test with one of our tutors. The test will show us your level of English and we will recommend the best course for you.
