How can you begin to rebuild your life if you can’t communicate with your neighbours?
Being able to speak English helps refugees and asylum seekers integrate into our community. From accessing work to building relationships with their neighbours, ESOL learning (English for Speakers of Other Languages) helps overcome isolation and enables migrants to begin to improve their lives.
ICN runs ESOL courses from Pre-entry level to Level 1.
The levels are:
- Entry 1 = Beginner
- Entry 2 = Elementary
- Entry 3 = Pre-intermediate
- Level 1 = Intermediate
Each course has two 2 hour lessons per week.
Classes at ICN are from 9.15 a.m. to 11.15 a.m. and 11.30 a.m. to 13.30 p.m.
There is a small charge for lessons, but asylum seekers not receiving benefits or financial support can learn for free.
ICN also runs women’s ESOL classes at St Luke’s Church, Winton. These classes are run with a creche, allowing women to bring their little ones with them when they come to study.
Classes at St Luke’s Church are from 12.45-2.30 p.m every Monday and Tuesday.
