Action Language provides free English courses in Newcastle and Sunderland city centre. Our aim is to provide ESOL classes to refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants unable to access mainstream classes in a supportive environment.

All our free classes are taught by qualified (CELTA or above) volunteer teachers and supported by enthusiastic and motivated volunteer classroom assistants. If you would like to get involved with Action Language as a volunteer in either of these roles visit our volunteer page for more details.

Currently we provide

  • Skills for Life – We deliver this course in Newcastle and Sunderland for learners of all abilities – Complete beginner up to Level 2
  • ESOL for Employability – This free intensive 5 week course runs termly in Newcastle and Sunderland and helps prepare students to gain employment in the UK
  • Skills for Life in the community – to reach isolated communities in Newcastle we deliver a weekly skills for life class in partnership with The Millin Charity in Benwell. This class is for females only and free childcare is provided.

In addition to our free classes we provide professional English courses including IELTS and Cambridge FCE through our Action Language PRO project.

It was the best opportunity for me to come to the English classes and the teacher was very friendly and I am meeting new people. I think that I am improving my English and my normal life. I think it’s very different because before I started coming to the English class I was very frustrated because I don’t have nothing to do at all. Nothing! So when I started coming I started to feel more happy and more smiling, yes. It was a very good improvement
