ENGLISH FOR NATIVE SPEAKERS
Do you want to improve your English language skills?
Do you need an English qualification for work or further education?
At EMBS we run small supportive classes to build confidence, skills and enjoyment of English. Lessons are planned to ensure everyone is relaxed and engaged and can study in the way that suits them best. Our staff build strong relationships with students to help them achieve their academic targets.
You will work towards English Functional Skills qualifications, which are recognised by employers and helpful in gaining employment or progressing to study further courses. You will develop your skills in the four areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. We deliver all levels of Functional skills qualifications from Entry 1 to Level 2.
ENGLISH FOR SPEAKERS OF OTHERS LANGUAGES (ESOL)
Do you want to improve your English to help you live in the UK?
EMBS has classes for everybody who wants to learn English as an additional language. Classes run in the daytime, evenings and on Saturdays. We have every level of class from complete beginners (A1/Pre-entry) to advanced (C1/Level 2). We will do all we can to help you get the skills and confidence you need to live and work in the UK.
At every level, we will help you develop your reading, writing, speaking and listening skills Our entry level English classes help students learn the English they need to communicate and carry out every day interactions in Oxford and Banbury, like buying bus tickets and attending doctors’ appointments. At higher levels, students learn to write to a high standard and communicate fluently, for example in writing formal letters and participating in job interviews.
Our friendly community means students build strong relationships with each other and their teachers. We supplement time in the classroom with visits to museums, the council, shops, the library and charity organisations. We explore topics like caring for the environment, British culture, government and volunteering to help you integrate fully into life in Oxford and Banbury.
You will work towards English Functional Skills qualifications, which are recognised by employers and helpful in accessing future education opportunities or employment in the UK. We deliver all levels of Functional skills qualifications from Entry 1 to Level 2 and students sit exams in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.
Can you speak English really well, but struggle with reading and writing?
These classes are very small so you will get plenty of 1-1 attention and support. The tutor uses a phonics based approach to help all students improve their reading and writing skills.
