Learning English

Do you know anybody who needs help learning English?

Angus Council’s Community Learning and Development Service will be starting off their popular ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes across the county from Monday, August 22.

The classes are free and are held in Brechin, Forfar, Montrose and Arbroath in local schools in the evenings

They concentrate on speaking, listening, writing and reading and are designed to help non English speakers to better integrate with the local community and to access local services. SQA qualifications are also available.

People who have come along to our classes have commented on how useful they were for registering with the doctor and making appointments, dealing with banks and understanding information from schools amongst other benefits.

The Service is also interested in recruiting volunteers who might like to get involved in supporting the classes – no knowledge of foreign languages is required.
