Course Overview

At ELATT we are experts in teaching English and helping students to improve their English. We have 38 years’ experience in supporting adults to gain the skills they need for life and work.

We teach a range of ESOL courses in person in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and across West London. We also teach a number of class of all skills and levels online via zoom. We will support you to develop your speaking and listening, reading and writing. We have Functional Skills English classes online and face to face.

We have classes at all ESOL levels Entry 1 – Level 2. As part of your ESOL course you will take part in local community activities, workshops and volunteering. You will get to practice IT skills and improve your confidence through conversation clubs and workshops.

As well as grammar, speaking and listening and spelling and writing skills, our courses are all about helping you make a difference in life and work. From taking a more active role in community life, learning about your mental health and well-being, and supporting you into a new job, ELATT gives you a full experience to help you improve your English.

You will sit for an exam at the end of your course. All our exams are in-person in our centres in Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Ealing, White City, Heston or Wembley. You will do your exam in the centre closest to where you live. We do not have online exams.

Contact the ESOL team to register and take an assessment in order to find the most suitable class for you.

We’re here for you as the UK emerges from the coronavirus pandemic: our Sixth Form classes are now all face-to-face, and we’re offering a mix of online and in-class options for our adult courses. You’ll receive the same personalised support whichever way you study at ELATT.

Occupation: Office Administrator

This course has helped me a lot. Before I used to be worried about applying for work as I thought I would get rejected. Now I have much more confidence. I made new friends and I am able to communicate with others with greater confidence. I am now working in a job that I enjoy very much.
