English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Entry 3 Speaking and Listening

Ref: C3840942

Using everyday situations, we will practice giving short explanations and descriptions in a range of tenses. We will look at when and where formal language is needed in some common situations (e.g. work, education). We will practice ways to listen for and identify new and relevant information in a range of instructions, discussions and presentations. We will also look at how body language, facial expressions, and gestures can help explain how we feel, and help us understand how others feel, too.

Course aim

This course will build on the speaking and listening skills you learned at Entry 2. This course leads to a City & Guilds Entry 3 Speaking and Listening qualification.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • You will need to talk to a member of staff and do a short activity to make sure the course is right for you. For more information and to book an appointment please call 0300 303 3464
