What is ESOL?

ESOL Skills for Life qualifications support speakers of other languages based within the UK to develop their English language skills for work, further learning or everyday life. These qualifications are for anyone based in the UK needing to improve their understanding and use of written or spoken English. This might be to help get on at work (or get a job), prepare for further study, access public services, or just to function more effectively in an English-speaking environment

ESOL learners will develop and improve their language skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. They will encounter topics which are both familiar and relevant to them. Topics include:

  • personal details/experiences
  • work
  • education/training
  • housing
  • family and friends
  • health
  • transport
  • weather
  • buying goods
  • leisure
  • UK society
