The Talk English Project is offering free beginner English courses for speakers of other languages (ESOL) across Manchester. These courses will be taught by volunteer ESOL teachers who are being trained and supported through the Talk English Project.
Talk English Courses are free and are aimed at adults whose English is very limited (Entry 1), who don’t speak English at all (Pre-entry) or who may not have accessed ESOL courses in the past.Through the project we are hoping to reach adults who are not currently eligible for mainstream ESOL courses funded by the Skills Funding Agency, which are mainly targeted at people who are actively seeking work.
By attending classes, learners will be able to improve their basic communication skills for everyday life. The courses are not accredited and do not count towards citizenship, however learners will receive an internal certificate recognising their attendance and achievement at the end of the course
Enrolment will take place during class times from 22 April 2014 but learners will be able to enrol on the classes after that date if there are spaces available.To enrol, learners must bring proof of ID and proof of address. All classes will take place once a week and will run until July 2014 in the first instance.
If you have any service users who need very basic English classes and are unable to access courses due to waiting lists or eligibility, please refer them to one of our classes. Please find details of courses attached and a poster for you to display in your centres.
