What's On in Glasgow Life
English for Speakers of Other Languages
Glasgow Life Area Teams provide this community based English classes for speakers of other languages (ESOL). Our courses are mostly at introductory levels - equivalent to SCQF Levels 2-4. Classes are free of charge and are open to any adults in Glasgow whose 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.
