The course will provide support with English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and is particularly aimed at learners who need extra help with reading and writing and the English alphabet. On this course you will improve reading and writing, including spelling, punctuation, vocabulary and simple sentences. The course is for learners with a pre-entry level of English.

Course description

This is an English course for adults. You will develop basic English language skills. Before you can enrol on this course, you’ll do a skills check. This is for us to make sure you get on the right course for your level.

On this course you will get used to being back in the classroom as an adult and starting to learn literacy in English. You will learn things like: English alphabet, writing upper case and lower case letters, recognise and read common words in English, use simple punctuation such as full stops, improve your spelling of common words as well as write simple sentences.

This course will help you in your first stages of your journey in learning English and offers you progression opportunities in the next academic year moving towards pre-entry and entry level ESOL classes and qualifications.
