Learn to communicate with more confidence.

If English isn't your first language you may be interested in an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course. The course will help you to improve your English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. These range from complete beginner to Level 2 (High Intermediate).

If you are interested in English Language lessons and arrived under the Homes for Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme please email adulteducation.feedback@cornwall.gov.uk to find out what your options are.

Beginners can start with days of the week, numbers and basic conversations. As you get more confident you can move up the levels and gain qualifications.
