ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes take place all year round across our venues in Westminster, including Pimlico, Amberley Road and Lisson Grove.
What are ESOL courses?
Our English language classes are designed for those whose first language is something other than English. WAES offers different levels of courses from beginner to advanced to suit learners of all abilities.
If you need to be able to speak and understand English to help you cope in everyday life, for example, to help your children, communicate with others or to get a job then ESOL courses are designed for you.
Am I eligible for ESOL funding?
If you are a citizen of the UK or a country within the European Economic Area or have lived in either for at least the last three years then you should be eligible for UK government funding for your ESOL course.
People with certain types of immigration status such as refugee status, discretionary, exceptional or indefinite leave to enter or to remain and their family members are also usually eligible.
