We run free ESOL classes for beginner to advanced learners.
Our classes are aimed at helping students adapt to living in the UK. We try to make our classes as fun as possible, with lots of games and interactive learning.
Our lessons include a coffee and cake break.
We also have a creche available on Wednesday afternoon lessons for babies and toddlers.
We don't offer any qualifications, but we do have 4 fully qualified (CERT tesol) tutors who volunteer to help students learn English.
All of our classes are completely free! This includes the cake, coffee and creche.
If you would like, feel free to donate your own cake, but this isn't a requirement.
What are the lessons like?
We run three classes a session, depending on the amount of students.
Our beginner's classes are aimed at students who speak little to no English at all. We focus on teaching the most necessary skills needed in the UK, such as being able to tell the time. This would be the equivalent of Pre-Entry ESOL.
Our intermediate classes are the biggest, and range from Entry 1 to Entry 3, We teach practical skills like filling out forms and writing CV's, as well as more fun topics like cooking and gardening. We also like to include small lessons on British culture if the students are interested.
We've started to introduce an advanced class this year. This class is for students who are almost fluent in English, but would like some extra practice. This would be the equivalent of upper Entry 3 to L2 ESOL. This class focuses more on pronunciation and discussion, as well as correcting any mistakes the students might be regularly.
We also run a coffee and cake break, where we serve tea, coffee, cake and biscuits. A lot of the cake is donated by students, so you get to try lots of international treats!
We have a creche during Wednesday's lessons. All our creche workers are DBS checked.
