English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Entry 2 Speaking and Listening

Ref: C3743821

We will use real life situations to ask questions and get information, listen for the general idea and details, and give information about events in the past, present and future. We will use role plays to practice useful conversations, for example, at the doctor’s, in a job interview. We will work on ways to improve your pronunciation.

Course aim

This course will build on the speaking and listening skills you learned at Entry 1. This course leads to a City & Guilds Entry 2 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

By the end of the course I should be able to:
