COVID-19: HALS is running an online service and all courses are FREE until July 2020. We are running a full programme of all our normal courses, plus a few new ones, to keep your mind active during the lockdown.
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

- How to sign up for an ESOL course
ESOL courses are designed for people whose first language is not English. We offer a variety of courses from pre-entry, beginner courses to Level 2 speaking and listening, as well as a number of employability pathways including Working in Childcare, English for Private Hire Drivers, Intro to Teaching, ESOL and IT.
Each course will help you:
- Develop the skills you need for everyday life in the UK
- Develop your English skills to get a job or improve your work prospects
- Provide you with a qualification in English
- Enable you to progress on to an academic or vocational course
We offer daytime and evening classes, usually twice a week for one term.
If you are a citizen of the UK or a country within the European Economic Area, or have lived in either for at least the last three years, then you should be eligible for UK government funding for your ESOL course.
People with certain types of immigration status such as refugee status, discretionary, exceptional or indefinite leave to enter or to remain and their family members are also usually eligible.
Our learning centre at Wood Green Library is temporarily closed, but you can make ESOL course enquiries or sign up for courses by calling 020 8489 2596 or emailing email@example.com
