ESOL, EFL and CELTA

ESOL classes help many learners to improve their English in order to communicate better in many situations, e.g. at work or their child’s school. Taught by experienced tutors you will learn about a range of topics based on living in the UK and citizenship. You have the opportunity to take Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening exams at various points in the year.

Our English language classes are multi-cultural and focus on communication through English. You will be encouraged to develop your speaking and listening skills as we focus on learning English grammar and vocabulary. All lessons have a communicative focus and your participation is expected in pair and group activities.

All of our teachers are professionally qualified with a Level 5 teaching certificate and 70% of our teaching staff have a Level 7 diploma or master’s degree qualification in teaching English.
