ESOL

You can study ESOL from Entry 1 to Level 2. Most ESOL students study during the day time, but we also offer evening classes. You can choose from:

Full-time day study

16 hours a week (Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3)

Full-time day students come to college 3 days a week. These classes start in September and are 34 weeks long. Day classes are between 9am and 4pm.

Part-time day study

6.5 hours a week (Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3 or Level 1)

Part-time day students come to college 1.5 days a week. These classes start in September and January and are 15 weeks long.

Part-time evening study

Part-time evening students come to college for 2 hours a week between 6pm and 8pm during one evening (Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3, Level 1 or Level 2). These classes start in September and January and are 15 weeks long.

All courses lead to qualifications which are either ESOL, City and Guilds or Agored Cymru.

Course information

Our ESOL courses include all 4 skills:

  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Reading
  • Writing

Grammar and vocabulary are developed in the classroom and students are encouraged to choose the topics which are important to them, especially in their everyday lives.

To make sure you are studying at the right level, you will be asked to attend an interview where we will check your speaking and listening skills and also set a short reading and writing assessment.

To book your place for a test, please complete the form below.

For most students, these courses are FREE of charge, eg, settled migrants from the EU, refugees and people seeking asylum. People on a spousal visa may also be entitled to free lessons. There may be a charge for some students, which depends on the type of visa you have. Unfortunately, we cannot accept those who have student or visitor visas.

Information about fees, how much and when and how to pay will be provided at your first appointment when you complete your English language test.
