Talk English (ESOL)

What's talk English?

Do you have limited or minimal English language skills? Talk English offers ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes to people with low level English to support them with their language skills. The Talk English courses are taught by trained volunteers and can help you improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. The classes are also a great opportunity for you to meet new people and take part in fun activities to practise speaking English.

The project is funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.

We have many classes running around Bolton. To enquire about classes, please visit the Deane & Derby Community Learning Centre. Click below for the Talk English class schedule.
