How will I be taught?

All our ESOL courses are delivered in person with classroom-based learning.

You may also be required to carry out some level of online independent study in between sessions and will need a smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC and a good internet connection to do this. You may need access to a laptop or PC to complete assignments throughout the course.

Don’t worry if this is a new way of learning for you – our tutors will explain how this works and support you to do this.
