This is the perfect course to help build your confidence in building your writing language skills. Although the main focus will be writing (for example stories using exciting adjectives and formal letter using complex grammar) other elements will also be covered including speaking, listening and reading. The longer term target will be to pass the Level 1/2 Functional Skills English exam, but also to help each individual attain their own personal goals, be that to build their employment prospects or help them socialise. This will be done through a wide range of classroom activities to meet the needs of everyone.
