ESOL is a general English course which covers all aspects of communication in English. Its basis is to provide realistic examples of the language as it would be encountered through life in Britain. It is especially designed to suit adults from other countries whom now living in the UK wish to improve their general English skills. This can assist in all aspects of daily life as well as helping towards achievement of the British Citizenship test, visa applications or job applications.
