English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

If English is not your first language, our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses are specifically designed to increase confidence in everyday life by improving your understanding of the English language.

What will I learn?

ESOL courses are perfect if you want to improve your English language skills, prepare for studying in English or if you're looking to get a job.
An ESOL course will help increase your confidence in communicating in English at home, with family and friends, at work and in everyday social situations.
You'll also spend time on citizenship and learning about UK culture, so you can get to know your new surroundings.

How do I enrol on a course?

Before you can study on an ESOL course, you'll need to register your interest at the Glasgow ESOL Register. From there, they will put you in touch with course providers, and can also help you take a test to determine what level your English skills are at, and what type of course will be best suited to your needs.

Get involved!

ESOL students at Glasgow Clyde College regularly get involved in projects such as the Aye Write! book festival, creating displays and preparing presentations on different themes. Past topics have included the theme of "Journey" and produced diverse presentations which are not only moving for the audience, but therapeutic for the students presenting.

Getting involved in events such as Aye Write! helps non-native speakers increase their confidence, be part of the community and meet new people.

Scotland our New Home

Some of our ESOL students are also involved in a filmmaking project for young people with refugee experience who are making a home in Scotland.  The project develops the young people's filmmaking skills, confidence in their artistic imagination and in their right to tell their stories, in the way they want to tell them.
