What is it?
ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other Languages. It is an English course aimed towards non-native English speakers, giving you the English skills necessary for day-to-day life here in the UK. The course is designed to teach you practical English through interactive lessons with other students, and is a good way to help you in many areas such as:
- Speaking and communicating with native English speakers
- Gaining professional qualifications
- Reassuring prospective employers on your English qualifications
- Furthering your own education
Here at the ONE Community Centre, the Leeds Refugee Forum organises a few ESOL classes weekly which are open to all. Come join us for a fun and rewarding time in learning English.
