Next available course:
This course is the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Award in Speaking and Listening. The focus will be on the improvement of speaking and listening skills for life and employment.
This course can be a standalone award in Speaking and Listening or can be completed in conjunction with the ESOL Reading or Writing Award. This course is held in the evening.
The course is for people who do not speak English as a first language (EU and non EU nationals), and who do not already hold a Level 2 English qualification.
You need to have a clear interest in improving your English and you must show commitment and be self-motivated with a willingness to learn.
Teaching and Learning Methods
We will conduct an initial diagnostic assessment of your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. This will determine the session we place you in.
You will have an opportunity to study ESOL in a classroom with a qualified specialist. You could also carry out independent study online via our virtual learning environment – Moodle. This way you can practise your English grammar and other skills outside of College.
We use a variety of teaching methods to allow a broad mix of students to develop their English language skills. These include role play, group work and interactive activities.
