I want to join a class. What should I do?
Contact Jennie Mechti on 07429 435 348, or email jenniemechti@gmail.com, and we will help you to choose a class

I don’t know what the level of my English is. How can I choose a class?
We will speak to you and ask you to do an initial assessment test before we decide which class is the best for you

I work shifts and sometimes will not be able to come to class. What can I do?
You can choose two classes (for example, one morning or afternoon, one evening) and come to the class each week which does not clash with your work pattern

Will I get a certificate at the end of the course?
We can enter you for a Trinity Skills for Life examination at the appropriate level before the end of the course. You will have to pay for the exam. Your tutor will tell you the current fees for your level, and advise you on when you are ready to enter for an examination. If you sit another exams such as IELTS, SELT, or GESE, you will always get a certificate provided that you pass the exam.  We can also provide Attendance Certificates.

What if I need a visa, or wish to apply for residency or citizenship?
We can prepare you for the appropriate examination such as the Trinity College London GESE or ISE exams

What if I need a level higher than the Skills for Life examinations can offer?
We can prepare you for an IELTS exam at the appropriate level

How can I pay for the course?
You must pay your tutor for each term before the term begins, by cash or cheque or with a bank card. Information on prices can be seen here
