photo from an English class from Notre Dame Refugee CentreOur free English classes are run by qualified (volunteer) ESOL teachers.

Lessons take place on Mondays and Thursdays alongside our drop-in sessions.

We offer classes from pre-beginner level through to intermediate.

The classes are not accredited but we aim to help learners progress to a level where they can participate in college or further education classes.

If you would like to join an English class you will need to complete an assessment.

ESOL assessments take place on Mondays from 10am-12pm.

Please come along to the Centre drop-in on a Monday to sign up.

“When I arrived in the UK I didn’t speak a word of English, but thanks to your lessons, today I am starting to be able to get by in English, little by little.”
