ESOL Courses

ESOL means English for Speakers of Other Languages.  Here at KLS we run English courses for people whose first language is not English.  If you are interested, please get in touch.  We will invite you for an initial assessment and interview to check your level. 

We also run Maths courses and childcare courses for ESOL students. 

All courses are free and we have 120 students, four teachers and 11 volunteer teaching assistants.

Course Information

Our ESOL courses are levels from pre-entry to Level 2.  Courses run from September to July, excluding school holidays.  After an initial assessment to check your level, you will come to class twice a week for a total of four hours.  We expect regular attendance.  Most students achieve a recognised ESOL or English qualification at the end of the year.

Our Maths and childcare courses are once a week.

All our courses are supported by a crèche for babies from 4 months old and children up to 5 years old.

I cannot help my children with homework and school is very different here [from Somalia]. I missed so much of my school because of the war in my country – we need this for our children because we can’t speak English. We need to learn too.
