Our English classes are a safe environment for refugees and asylum seekers to learn English. We take into account the needs of clients with very low levels of English and limited education in their own language. 

Lessons are held at our learning centre - Piper Hall, Piper Road, Kingston KT1 3EX. The centre is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Learners can come two mornings per week.
