English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Do you want to Learn English? Do you work with or know someone who would like to learn English?

We provide community-based learning opportunities online and in person classes to support learning English.  If you would like more information, please complete the online referral form and we will be in touch.

When you submit a referral, we will confirm you have a permanent address.  If you are currently residing in a Welcome Hub, you will not be invited to complete an ESOL assessment.  Although there will be language provision available, please check the communication board in your hub for details about ESOL classes.  To attend permanent ESOL classes you must have a permanent address.

Learners with a permanent address or staying with Hosts/Sponsors will be invited to an ESOL Assessment where we will confirm your level of English.  During this assessment we will test your reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in English. This helps us confirm your level of English and the appropriate class for you.  Beginner level learners will be invited to classes with Lifelong Learning, level 2 and above will be invited to attend learning with Dumfries and Galloway College.

Due to the increasing demand, it may take several weeks to receive an invite to attend an ESOL Assessment. If you have any questions, please email esoltutors@dumgal.gov.uk.
