English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Glasgow Life Area Teams provide community based English classes for speakers of other languages (ESOL) across the city. Our courses are mostly at introductory levels - equivalent to SCQF Levels 2-4. Our classes are free of charge and are open to any adults in Glasgow who’s first language is not English. We welcome people from settled black and minority ethnic communities in the city, refugees/asylum seeker communities, all EU countries, and anywhere else in the world.
Participants negotiate their learning plans with our tutors. Typically, participants learn to carry out everyday transactions in English; improve their conversational English, and learn basic English grammar. Learners are also offered support and encouragement to progress with their learning.
