Testimonials

I can now speak on the phone. I can understand people. I have stopped being afraid to talk to people and am more confident now.

ESOL student

Before I started ESOL I was afraid to go to the shop on my own. Now I am more independent and can go to the shop, the bank and even buy a bus ticket all on my own!

The teacher is great, the lessons engaging and interesting. I feel that I am making progress with my language skills.

I love my English lessons. I wish they could last all year.
