Here are 10 members of the ESOL class which began at the start of the summer term. ESOL stands for English for Speakers of Other Languages and this class has be provided specifically to help individuals who are beginners in English. This class has been made possible by an Lottery Grant from Awards for All and by a donation of £250 towards equipment from the Heart of England Co-operative. St Peter and St John's Church donate the room for free and have provided administration and printing.
As a result of the Lottery Grant we are able to pay the teacher Edwina Mohtady, (standing 3rd from left) who is a fully qualified and experienced teacher of English as a Foreign Language and yet also offer the class for free.
We were overwhelmed with applicants in the lead up to the course and every applicant was individually assessed so that the class could be tailored to the needs of those with the least grasp of English.
They are making great progress!
We maintain a waiting list should any students move on or fail to attend regularly. The funding is in place to continue this class until Easter 2018. For any further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
