ESOL & EFL
Whether you are visiting England or are planning an extended stay, Bedford College can offer you a variety of valuable opportunities to improve your English.
If you are a resident in England but English is not your first language, we can offer you the opportunity to develop your language skills at the same time as you familiarise yourself with everyday essentials ready for either the driving test or the online citizenship test.
Why choose us?
If you are an international student visiting England, our English as a Foreign Language (EFL) qualifications will enable you to develop your listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and extend your knowledge of English grammar and vocabulary. When you have reached the required level, you can take one of the Cambridge ESOL examinations.
All the skills you will need
All classes follow a syllabus that incorporates conversation, exam preparation, grammar, listening, pronunciation, reading, speaking, vocabulary and writing, equipping you with all the skills you will need to speak the language competently.
A variety of learning materials
Each class will have a course book as a basis for class work and some will have a practice book as a basis for homework. Additional learning materials will also be used regularly.
A wide range of learning activities
You can expect to engage in classroom activities that include individual work, pair and group work, role-play and whole class work, and you will use computer-assisted language learning programmes, videos and language games. This means you will experience a wide range of learning resources, designed to cater for different learning styles.
