English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)


Find out about our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses.

If English isn't your first language, our courses will help you to develop your communication skills for everyday situations. You will have the opportunity to work with students from many different countries: you'll make new friends, boost your confidence, learn how to read, write and speak clearly in English.

Improving your English can help you to:

  • understand the laws and customs of the UK
  • talk to doctors and teachers
  • help your child with homework
  • prepare for the Life in the UK test

We offer a range of courses for different abilities (from pre-entry to level 2), an assessment is carried out before starting a course to make sure you are on the right level. 

We also take third party referrals to our ESOL courses, to refer, find out more, or book a place, please contact us.
