Local history for ESOL learners
We work in partnership with curriculum managers at Hackney Learning Trust to develop courses, where ESOL learners use the museum to enrich their learning of the English language on Tuesdays and Fridays in the museum. For more information about our formal ESOL programme please visit the ESOL Advice Service where you'll find help and support.
Xenia: women learning English together
Are you learning English? Come and make a friend, practice English, learn new things, and share your culture. Do you speak fluent English? Come and make a friend, practice whatever you want to, learn new things, and make London a more welcoming place.
Women from all walks of life are invited to come along and meet, connect and learn in our next Xenia meet up for women. English language learners and women who are confident in English will participate in activities together, discovering the area, talking and forming relationships. We use a different theme each meeting to enable the conversation to flow and friendships to form.
You're welcome to bring your children.
