Where To Find Free English Lessons | United Kingdom | News

One of the most common questions refugees and asylum seekers have is how to improve their English skills.

Learning English can be useful for finding a job or studying, and can help prevent loneliness or isolation when you arrive in a new country.

Whether you already have some knowledge of the language or are just starting out, there are many services available to help you.

Refugees who have been granted settlement status in the UK are entitled to eight hours a week of free tuition for one year.

The language courses are called English for Speakers of Other Languages ​​(ESOL). They may also be called English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.

You must contact your town hall to register. You can find your local council by typing your postcode into the box.

Then simply use Google to search for your local council’s website and ESOL courses. For example, if you lived in Lambeth in London, you would Google: Free ESOL courses Lambeth.

The British Council also offers online courses for children and adults at different levels.

If you have already tried free lessons, or want to learn English as quickly as possible, you can also choose to pay for English lessons.

Fees can range from £80 to £1,500 and you can learn English online or in person.
