Overview of Support offered

This is a short 6 week course that aims to improve basic English skills. Where possible, we keep the sessions as practical and fun as we can. We look at how to improve communication skills and interacting with people we work with, positive body language and how we express our thoughts and feelings through facial expressions. The course also includes aspects of written communication. We focus on the basics of grammar and spelling strategies, tenses and visual literacy. Groups are small and friendly with plenty of support from staff if needed. We will go through the basic English skills you need for everyday life with no worries about passing or failing or sitting an exam. This course is about getting to grips with the basics, so you can move on to higher levels of Literacy if you want to or just feel more confident using these skills in everyday life.
