English for Life in the UK is what we call our ESOL course. ESOL stands for English for Speakers of other Languages. You may have just arrived in the UK to start a new job or you may have lived here for the past fifty years. Whatever your age or background, if you need help with English to improve your opportunities in the UK – we want to help you!
Gaining an ESOL qualification demonstrates that you have good speaking, writing, listening and reading skills in English. Not only will it help improve your social interactions and everyday life – it’s also a great way to show employers your language skills and add to your CV. You should always choose a course which is accredited by a Government approved exam board and, ideally, is held at an accredited college.
There are courses at different levels. This means you can start at a level which suits your current English skills, even if you can only tell us your name!
If you are applying to be a British Citizen, you can take a combined ESOL and citizenship course to prepare you for the ‘Life in the UK’ test.
