Action Language provides free English lessons to people seeking asylum, refugees, and other migrants who are not eligible for or find it difficult to attend college classes. Classes are for people aged over 18.
You can walk to our classes easily if you live near the city centre or to the east of the city. We have very limited funds for reimbursing bus fares and these will be used to help people most in need. Please ask for more information when you register at our offices. You can find a map on this page.
