English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Courses

Join any time of the year !

Do you need to improve your English language? Not being able to speak, understand and use the English Language is a huge barrier to employment in this country. Besides work, you will have trouble keeping in touch with family, friends and communicating at home and at work. The ESOL Skills for Life qualification helps you integrate into British Society. Improve your life and future career by taking a City and Guilds ESOL qualification at Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3 or Level 1
All the courses include examinations which are internally assessed, internally verified and then externally verified by City and Guilds and cover speaking, listening, reading and writing.
5E Ltd will provide an in-house assessment to gauge which level you are currently at. This in-house assessment combines speaking, listening, reading and writing. You will then be placed in the correct level of class to improve your English Language skills.
