Important update

What is ESOL?

ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is a programme designed to improve English language skills in the community. By taking part in free ESOL classes in your area, you get to learn English in a friendly environment, meet new people, make friends and get help with local services.

ESOL classes take place across the borough and our ESOL Intelligence Unit in the Walsall for All team can help understand your needs and identify suitable classes for you.

If you would like to find out more, please see below the details of local organisations that run classes in Walsall or get in touch.

In addition, we are also looking for community organisations and local businesses, who are interested in delivering ESOL classes to their service users, clients or employees. To find out more, please contact Harjinder Lal using the contact details further down or email walsallforall@walsall.gov.uk.

 

This page will be updated, so please check regularly for details of new classes.
