Do you want to learn to speak English?

To join an English class, come to one of the free ESOL advice sessions below. A teacher will check your English speaking, listening, reading and writing and then help you to find a class that fits around you. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are available. If you have a baby, we can help you find a class with crèche.

Everyone is welcome!
