Course description

1. Get Ready for Learning with the WEA:

At the WEA we use the power of Microsoft Office 365 and Canvas to journey through your learning. You'll navigate the O365 suite and Canvas platform, gaining confidence in using English in various digital contexts. Whether you're mastering email etiquette or refining your document creation skills, this section sets the stage for a seamless transition into the digital landscape.

2. ESOL Conversational English:

Engage in lively conversations that mirror real-life situations. Our ESOL Conversational English section provides a dynamic space to practice and refine your spoken English skills. Through role-playing, group discussions, and situational simulations, you'll build the confidence to navigate everyday interactions with ease. From ordering at a restaurant to engaging in small talk at social gatherings, this section is tailored to make your language acquisition an enjoyable and practical experience.

3. ESOL Knowing Your Community:

Discover the richness of your new community as you delve into the third section of our program. Uncover the gems of your surroundings, explore local hotspots, and gain insights through social prescribing.
