The great majority of our members do not have English as their first language, and many have not had the chance to study English before. 

Being able to speak English helps our members to rebuild their lives and be part of their new communities. It also helps overcome the loneliness and isolation they often experience.

 What level of English do we teach? 

We focus on basic language and literacy skills for the members in greatest need of help.  Groups are small so that it is easier to offer individual support to each learner.

When?

At the moment we run classes every Monday and Tuesday. However, we have new referrals every week and we would like to start new groups as soon as we can recruit more volunteers to the teaching team.   

Our teaching spaces are newly refurbished and equipped, and we have wonderful volunteer teachers in the Education Team.
