Learn or improve English through ESOL

The Waltham Forest English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Advice Service offers free sessions for residents who want to learn or improve their English. Following the COVID-19 outbreak, residents can still register for and participate in English language courses online.

To book an appointment and find a free online language course, text or WhatsApp your NAME + ‘ESOL advice’ to 077 7005 4167.

This service is provided as part of the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) funded Connecting Communities programme.

If you would like to find out about the barriers that residents with an ESOL need are facing in the borough, or review how the model of this programme is helping to improve English language provision, check out our report: Left Out, Left Behind: A study on the barriers to ESOL (PDF)
