English Lessons

 

The Church runs three levels of English classes that are designed to help our Asylum Seeker friends improve their English speaking and understanding skills.

They run on a Monday (alongside ‘Drop In’) and a Thursday, usually in the Church’s East and West Lounge and the Lower Hall.

All sessions are delivered by volunteers, most of who are experienced teachers. There is no charge to enroll and classes are open to those who are keen to study and learn. Sessions generally run to a term- time schedule and serious commitment is needed if you really want to improve your skills. In most cases, courses should be attended from the first class until the course if completed. It is not usually possible to start a course in the middle of a term.

Details of the various courses are listed below. Please contact Susan Hughes or Khatera for more details.
