Get ready for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Entry 3

Ref: C3741999

This course is for students who have already passed one or more ESOL Entry 2 exams. We will practice giving short explanations and descriptions in a range of tenses using everyday situations. We will look at different features of longer texts, and how these can help us to understand the purpose of the text and find information in it. We will look at ways to help to improve your spelling of less common words by using strategies you have learned before. We will also look at how we use body language to show how we feel, and understand how others feel.
