Good news everyone! After spending a few months finding the perfect English teacher (we did, two of them), we are now finally able to provide free English classes for Eastern Europeans, in our offices.
We know that the most important step towards integration and leading a fulfilled life as full members of the community, is for people to speak English. We are very happy to announce that our free classes, funded by the Big Lottery Fund will start in October.
There will be several classes per week, as follows:
Intensive day-time classes (2 x 2h per week, 4.5 weeks)
- Beginners – Mondays and Thursdays between 10.15 am and 12.15 pm; first group starts 9 October, second group starts in November
- English for job seekers: pre-intermediate level – Mondays and Thursdays between 12.45 pm and 2.45 pm; first group starts 9 October, second group starts in November
Evening classes (2h per week for 10 weeks)
- Beginners – Mondays 6pm to 8pm, start on 9 October
- English for job seekers: pre-intermediate level – Wednesday between 6 pm and 8 pm, start on the 10 October
All interested learners have to attend an entry test day. This is just to asses people’s levels of English. The tests for groups starting 9 October will be held on 4 October, between 3 pm and 6pm. We will ask learners to fill in a short grammar test and have a short conversation with tutors to assess both grammatical and oral fluency.
Anyone interested in learning more please call the office on 020 8741 1288 Monday to Friday between 9.30 am and 5 pm, send email at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask during our drop-in surgeries every Monday and Thursday mornings.
The classes are open to all Eastern European nationals of working age, willing to improve their career or looking to get back into work and who are on low income.
