English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Bradford College offers a dynamic and professional approach to language learning: speaking and listening, reading and writing.

Come and improve your English in a supportive and engaging environment, using the latest technology. Our highly qualified teachers will enable you to achieve a qualification in ESOL Skills for Life at an appropriate level and you will have the opportunity to progress to either our vocational or academic courses in the future.

We offer ESOL courses from Entry Level 1, 2 and 3 to Level 1, at which stage you will be able to access ESOL with your choice of vocational area.

All courses will involve enrichment activities (short residential visits and/or trips to museums etc) as well as career advice and guidance. You will also be able to access a wide range of ESOL resources on our Virtual Learning Environment.
