Free English language Classes (ESOL) and conversation clubs

People can choose to learn English in formal ESOL classes. We also provide more informal conversation clubs. We want learners to gain confidence, develop new skills and feel more connected in the local community.

These classes are offered free of charge, seven days a week and in many different venues across the borough.

To join a class you will need to take a short test to assess your level of English. Please contact one of the providers below to find our more about where the classes are and when you can be tested.
