ESOL – Ali


I’m from Sudan and I’ve lived in the UK for one year. I joined an ESOL course at Greenheys because I need to find a job and also need to get to know the British culture and systems to settle here.

The teachers are very helpful and I feel very happy learning English with a group of diverse people from different countries, who are all very friendly. The teachers explain everything clearly and have helped me improve my speaking, listening, reading and writing in English. The course has also helped me understand the diversity of Manchester, covering British culture, how to help others and how to make a positive contribution to the community. All this is very important for someone settling in the UK and wanting to become part of a new culture.

Learning English has helped me with my whole life – becoming more involved in my local community, being able to help my own children and getting a job. This course has helped me to overcome the language barrier and has given me lots of confidence and courage.
