Taster - ESOL

Ref: C2225308

Speak English like the English! If English is not your first language and you feel annoyed that you can not think of the word you know you want to use, this course will help grow your confidence and vocabulary. By using everyday scenarios, like going to the doctor and talking about the weather, we will increase your spoken confidence and your vocabulary so that the second language is second nature! The course can lead to accredited courses for work and citizenship tests.
