Learn to speak English with Surrey Adult Learning

Please note our ESOL classes will start in September 2020. To ensure that you are placed in the right class you will need to complete an assessment.

In light of the current global situation, it is likely that your class will initially be online so you must have access to the internet by mobile phone, tablet or computer.

To register your interest please email our customer service team on adultskills@surreycc.gov.uk with your contact details (full name, email address, phone number) and which subject/subjects you are interested in studying. You will then be contacted with information about the course and assessment.
