Hackney ESOL Advice Service

Do you want to learn to speak English?

The ESOL Advice Service works with lots of ESOL organisations in Hackney to help you to find a suitable class. You can register for a FREE English class by coming to one of the ESOL advice sessions below.

The number and type of free classes available to you depends on eligibility.

A teacher will check your English speaking, listening, reading and writing and then help you to find a class which fits around you. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are available. There are also classes with crèche for your baby. Everyone is welcome.

To register or for further information, please come to one of the advice sessions listed in the leaflet below. Please come in time for a ticket and bring a pen.

There are no advice sessions during school holidays and we are also closed for 4 weeks from the second week of December.

Bespoke ESOL Advice Sessions

If your organisation works with a group of people who could benefit from an ESOL course, and assessment at your venue or in a group would be more appropriate, we can offer bespoke advice sessions. If you think this service could be useful and would like to know more, please see our Bespoke ESOL Advice Guidelines. The service is free.
