ESOL Classes for Refugees

The United Kingdom is a nation of immigrants that is both enriched and challenged by the diversity of people who call this country their home. Immigrants’ contributions to and integration into the U.K. society underlie the nation’s progress to date and its ability to thrive in the future.

Not being able to communicate using the English language in the UK is a huge barrier to social inclusion for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) learners. Without skills in English to interact outside the home, migrants and refugees struggle to integrate, can feel socially isolated and will find it incredibly hard to find employment.

National Lottery Community Fund has recently granted Time to Help UK to start a virtual ESOL school for people from disadvantaged backgrounds. At Time to Help we believe education is the key solution for poverty. Therefore we have teamed up with education providers, and employers to help English Language Learners learn the skills and knowledge they need as workers, family and community members.


In addition to English Language acquisition, our professional development covers a range of topics, such as working with limited literacy learners, English for the workplace, civic engagement, technology integration, and ESOL student persistence.

At the moment we have enrolled more than 100 students and we have reached our capacity. We would like to expand our capacity if we can get more funding. You can visit our donation shop to support this specific cause.
