Do you want to improve your English language? ICN delivers ESOL classes (English for Speakers of Other Languages) to refugees and asylum seekers in our community.
From accessing work to building relationships with your neighbours, ESOL learning will help you to communicate and settle in your community.
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
We have classes at various locations. 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.
How to enrol in a class:
Come to ICN on Tuesday 5th December, any time from 09.30am – 4.30pm.
You will be asked to:
- do a short language assessment

Women’s classes with creche
ICN also have women’s ESOL classes at Bournemouth Community Church (BH9 2AU) on Mondays and at Citygate Church (BH8 8AS) on Tuesdays. These classes have a creche, allowing women to bring their little ones with them when they come to study.
