Help with English if it isn't your first language

English for Speakers of Other Languages  (ESOL)

The Youth, Family and Community Learning Service offer a range of learning opportunities for adults and families whose first language is not English, to help build the skills and confidence necessary to enable them to lead a full and independent life in the UK.

ESOL classes

All the learners have their own learning goals and programmes are designed to help with a range of everyday challenges from shopping; basic conversation to supporting their child's learning or helping with their job.

Initially a member of the Youth, Family and Community Learning Service team will meet individually with the learner to look at their needs in terms of both learning goals (what they want to achieve) and accessibility to decide which class provides the best fit for the individual.

Classes are free of charge, open to people who are living in South Lanarkshire and take place across the area both during the daytime and in the evening.
