Our courses will improve all of your English – speaking, listening, reading, writing as well as pronunciation, vocab and grammar.
You will be in a class with students from different countries and will learn about English culture and society as well as look at topics relevant to the workplace.
You will be assessed by our tutors in college to determine which level is suitable for you based on your language skills.
We offer Pre-entry, Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2 ESOL. We will give you an initial assessment before you start, a diagnostic assessment a few weeks into the class and then help you prepare for your exams which are staggered across the year.
To ensure you are on the right course we will give you an assessment to check your English language level. We will also review any exam results you have and advise you on your future study options for when your English has improved enough to progress.
You will be required to attend an interview prior to enrolling onto the course.
After these courses you can progress to the next level if you pass all your exams. The course may help you to progress in your job or career. It may help you to be able to be accepted onto a vocational course or to gain a university place.
