ESOL is English to Speakers of Other Languages. Students who did not learn English as their native tongue and/or continue to use other than English as a dominant language would be considered an English language learner.
ESOL consists of 5 levels being: Entry level 1, Entry level 2, Entry Level 3, Level 1 and Level 2 in both Math’s and English.
If you are applying for UK Citizenship, your English will be assessed. If it is below Entry Level 3, you will need to pass ESOL. Of course, ESOL is also a great way to reassure prospective employers that you have the English skills they are looking for. The course is also designed to be practical. So, it’ll teach you every day English, including punctuation and grammar, rather than things you won’t often be called up to use in the real world.
Once you have gained your ESOL certification, you will be able to progress to another course at a higher level. And, once you have achieved Entry Level 3, you can look for a job or take Level 1 college courses.
An ESOL certification will not just help in your day-to-day life. It is also a great way to show your skills on your applications and could be the difference between you and another candidate.
