What does studying English involve?

You will study either speaking/listening, reading or writing. ESOL helps students with everyday life, work or study.


Are there exams?

There are exams on some of the courses but please don't worry, you will be prepared and we will support you.


Can I do ESOL classes?

Please contact the ACRES Office for more details. New courses are in the planning ready for September / October 2019.


What can I do afterwards?

You can continue learning English at the next level or, for more advanced students, move on to GCSE English.

ACRES can also help with other courses that may be useful or of interest to you such as Digital Photography or Excel for Beginners.


How can I join an ESOL class?

If you are new to learning English with ACRES, and in order to make sure that you are on the right level course, you will need to speak to one of our tutors before starting.
