Pre Entry ESOL

Firvale Community Hub has been successfully delivering English My Way, Pre Entry ESOL, for the past 3 years.

Learners enjoy a variety of blended learning activities including Learning Circles, designed by the British Council and BBC, which encourage learners to focus on speaking and listening exercises for everyday situations such as shopping, going to the market, talking to other parents at school, dentist, Post Office, Job Interviews and speaking at work.

The course also includes some ICT exercises with interactive listening tasks. We currently deliver 4 sessions per week and have 19 learners from diverse backgrounds including Afghanistan, Slovakia and Pakistan.

Some of the learners will take English Speaking Board speaking and listening exams in January 2017 as the aim of these sessions is to prepare learners to move on to Entry level ESOL and eventually into employment. 

The feedback from learners and volunteers so far has been very positive. They have told us that they enjoy the friendly atmosphere and have made steady progress with their English Language learning and feel more confident to use English outside of the classroom.
