Who is the course for?

These two courses are for part-time learners whose native language is not English, who live or plan to live in the UK and who have little or no knowledge of English. It is ideal for people who want to practice their English in an informal environment and meet people of other nationalities.

What will I learn?

This course will help you build your confidence in spoken English to enable you to cope with everyday life. You will improve your pronunciation and understanding of basic constructions and vocabulary. The focus will be on speaking and listening but you will also improve your English grammar.

What can this course lead to?

Students who successfully complete the Beginners course will have the basics to progress onto an ESOL entry level course. The post-Beginners course may lead to an ESOL entry level qualification.
