English as a Second Language (Adult 19+)

ESOL courses are for people who do not have English as their first language and who want to improve their language skills to get more out of their life in the U.K.

The course will help you improve all your skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) and make it easier to seek employment, get a qualification and help your children with homework.

At the end of the course, you will take the Gateway ESOL Skills for Life exams. 

Duration/length of course

If you apply with us to start in September, you can finish your ESOL course by December. Classes are at all levels (Entry Level 1 to Full Level 2), and your days of studying will be determined at interview based on your skill level.

Progression routes / leaving destinations

On successful achievement, you can progress onto the next level.


Our fees for the main ESOL 19+ units are currently as follows:

  • Reading £150

  • Speaking & Listening £300

  • Writing £225

These fees are on a case by case basis depending on the student's skills. Our team can also talk to you about funding options at Interview if required.
