The WEA was established in 1903 and has provided part time courses for adults for nearly 120 years.  

Why are we different? 

All of our courses are live and tutor-led, unlike other learning providers. We use platforms like Zoom and Canvas, to allow learners to work together, make new friends and get feedback on work. 

"I liked the fact that I could do my work at home, when I wanted to. The tutor could comment on our work. We could see other people's work. there was time to speak on Zoom to others too".

Learn English at many levels with courses for speakers of other languages, for free.
