What is Alpha ESOL?

  • Alpha ESOL is designed for people who do not speak English as their first language.
  • Alpha ESOL will help to answer questions about life and faith and many more in a relaxed, friendly, non-threatening environment.
  • You will also have the opportunity to practice listening to, speaking and reading English.
  • Each week we will have a speaker, and times of discussion led by a host.
  • You can feel free to respond honestly in the discussion and share what you think and feel about what you have heard.
  • Participants are encouraged to ask tough questions with no fear of feeling judged or pressured.
