Course description

During the course you will start to learn English which will help you better explore and take part in your local community and to help build your skills for life and work. Our fully trained tutor will run the classes face to face at the newly refurbished Dolphin Women's Centre in Ward End Park, where you can meet other learners and work together to learn the language.

In this ESOL class we will talk about our everyday lives (for example shopping, health, where you live). You will start to learn about the alphabet and numbers. You will learn to ask and answer simple questions about basic personal information, sight read signs, symbols, words on forms and personal key words.

The course is designed for learners who know no or very little English already and who need to build their skills up ready to progress onto higher level courses next year.
