Initial Assessment for ESOL courses
English for Speakers of Other Languages courses are for individuals who speak English as a second language and want to improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. Classes are normally four hours a week for 33 weeks (a year).

We have courses available at five levels:
Pre-Entry (£60)
Entry Level 1 (£60)
Entry Level 2 (£300)
Entry Level 3 (£300/£450)
Level 1 (£300/£450)

To get started, please book an appointment for an initial assessment, where a tutor will assess your level and tell you which course is most appropriate.

The Initial Assessment is a 1-1 meeting with a tutor, which will be conducted online using Zoom (a video call). You will be emailed an invitation to the meeting the day before and you will just need to use the link and follow some simple instructions to join your tutor in the call. The assessment will last approximately 30 minutes.
