This program was developed to assist those for whom English is not their first language. Classes are held at Mile End every Monday afternoon from 1.00pm to 3.00pm during school terms. Tuition is offered in an informal, friendly environment.
Tuition is provided in small groups with only one or two students per tutor. Our students come from a range of countries, including: Afghanistan, Cambodia, China, Croatia, Egypt, India, Sri Lanka, Venezuela and Vietnam. The students are all at different stages on their journey to learn English, and this presents some interesting challenges as well as some light-hearted moments!
We have a group of regular, dedicated tutors without whom the programme could not operate. Five of our tutors are former teachers. This has been of great benefit to the students and has also provided good support to the other tutors.
If you or anyone you know may be interested in attending this class, please contact the Parish Office.
